Yes, Stay Fresh Fest rides again! The two-floor band party is back, and it’s bigger and better than ever, showcasing the best new music in the North West right now and having one huge party in the process. The party starts again on Saturday 30th September from 12pm, heading back to its spiritual home of Deaf.

Taking the reins this time around, the all-dayer will feature “doom-pop” quartet Easy Kill, topping the bill to launch their new album ‘Melanscholar’ at the show. Making the short trip over the Pennines are Leeds trio Drahla, following the release of latest single ‘Faux Text’, and a support slot for The Cribs album release show at Belgrave Music Hall.

Also on the bill are the chaotic post-punk sounds of Mold and the smooth synth styles of Koalas. Local indie outfit Wedding will be wasting no time getting back onto the stage following the success of their debut album ‘Mania Whatever’, along with female four-piece, the wild and weird ILL.

They’ll be joined by grungey trio SlowHandClap, singer-songwriter Rosey PM and Manchester latest musical export, Splutter, to complete the bill.

See you there!
