First Street Festival

Following the success of Homeground 2021 – HOME is delighted to present First Street Festival 2022, a five-week (weekends) event in Tony Wilson Place from 2nd June 2022.

Delivered in partnership with Ask Real Estate, supported by CBRE, First Street Festival will provide a range of free activities throughout June and July 2022, including live music, family events, drag performances, yoga, DJs and more. A central stage in Tony Wilson Place (in front of HOME) will form the focal point of the festival. All events will be free and open to the public.

HOME will programme and deliver the opening weekend (the Queen’s Jubilee weekend) and work with four partner organisations to curate the following weekends, allowing for a wide diversity of artists and voices, all uniquely part of the artistic community of Manchester, to take part over these weekends. This year’s partners are Brighter Sound, SM Music MGMT, All Hands on Deck, and The Untold Orchestra.
