There will be over sixty bands playing over the weekend.

The festival is sponsored by Fireball Whisky, Live Without Regret Clothing and Level Phase Audio.

On the Saturday night there will be multiple afterparties including Deadbolt’s own clubnight.

Deadbolt, the monthly alternative party club night at Pub/Zoo, is known in the Manchester scene as the night to go for a move away from the traditional clubbing experience.

The club night incorporates elements of interactive games, live music performances and giveaways throughout the night to create a house party atmosphere with a hint of mayhem.

Liam Connolly, founder of Deadbolt, said:

Deadbolt Festival is a chance for us to take the chaos of our club night and amplify it. Deadbolt Festival 2015 was the biggest thing that we have done to date and we can’t wait to make it even better this year with bigger bands, more brand collaborations and even more chaos!”

Weekend tickets for the festival are available to purchase now at for £26 and will include entry to the after parties for over 18s. Limited Early Bird tickets are available for £20.
