Bicep (live)

With more artists to be announced

Bringing the curtain down on Manchester International Festival and The Warehouse Project Special Edition are the mighty Bicep. Transformed from club dance floor dwellers to globetrotting producer DJs, the duo will front an expansive and gripping live show, featuring songs from their triumphant self-titled debut album.

A collaboration between MIF and WHP, curated with BBC Radio 6 Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs, Special Edition is a series of unique nights in Manchester’s immense and atmospheric Mayfield, a former railway station in Manchester, with lighting designer Stuart Bailes.

Special Edition is part of a series of pre-Factory events, paving the way for the opening of The Factory, a new major arts space being developed in the heart of the city that will be operated by MIF.

Everything that happened and would happen

Pre-Factory event


Part-performance, part-construction site, Everything that happened and would happen by composer Heiner Goebbels is a re-enactment of history, always on the verge of collapse – only to be rebuilt as if nothing had happened.
