HUNGRY PIGEON IN 2009
Hungry Pigeon was the talk of Manchester this year and undoubtedly Manchester’s biggest city centre festival being the only Manchester festival nominated for the UK Festival Awards. In our inaugural year in 2009 we were nominated in the Metropolitan Festival Category alongside longer established events such as Liverpool Sound City and Camden Crawl
With an incredible schedule of live music from 150 bands, plus live art, poetry, short films, U18s events, art exhibitions, busking and even its very own Northern Quarter art treasure trail,
HUNGRY PIGEON really does have something for everyone!
It is spread over 20 venues around the Northern Quarter, and also features a massive outdoor stage in the heart of Manchester City Centre – Piccadilly Gardens!!
Backed by Manchester City Council and Marketing Manchester, Councilor Mike Amesbury, Executive Member for Culture and Leisure for Manchester City Council said: “This is a brand new festival
for the city and we are proud to be supporting the new and upcoming talent involved”
In 2009 we attracted over 15000 people to the event over the Bank Holiday weekend
Artists in 2009 included KID BRITISH / NINE BLACK ALPS / WAVE MACHINES / MISTY’S BIG ADVENTURE / THE TRAVELLING BAND / TEN BEARS/ THE VORTEX / THE MAYBES / THE JESSIE ROSE TRIP / FRAZER KING
CASIO KID / GIDEON CONN / THE GAY BLADES... and many more....
