How to find MIF Live

We’re bringing MIF to your home, with weekly live broadcasts including exclusive premieres from our archives. Here’s what you can expect this week and head to what’s on for all the details : 


Festival in My House… And Yours – Wednesdays from 7.30pm 

Inspired by our long-running Festival in My House series, we’re inviting Manchester artists to create and present their own micro-international festivals in their homes – and then stream them for us and you online, live and for free.  


MIF Encounters – Thursdays from 12.30pm 

We can’t introduce you to our Festival artists in the flesh, but we can bring them into your homes via digital talks and archive discussions with some of our friends across the arts in Manchester and beyond.  


MIF Rewind – Fridays from 7:30pm 

We’ll be turning back the clock and streaming events from previous Festivals – in full and for free. 

Whether you prefer to get comfy on the sofa in front of the TV or watch on your phone as you scroll through Facebook, here’s how to find MIF Live on a number of devices and websites: 


On your TV 

If you have a smart TV, games console or streaming device (like an Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Chromecast etc), you can watch MIF Live shows on your TV with the YouTube app. 

You can subscribe to our channel by searching for ‘Manchester International Festival’ on the YouTube TV or mobile app, or by following this link on your computer – look for the red ‘SUBSCRIBE’ button. If you open the YouTube app on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, you should see a link to the latest broadcast on the home screen or in your ‘subscriptions’ tab (in the left-hand sidebar). 


On your Smartphone or Tablet 

You can also watch our broadcasts on the YouTube app for iOS or Android phones and tablets.

If you haven’t used YouTube before, we recommend signing up for a YouTube account so that you can join in the live conversation – you can find a guide on how to do that here, and then subscribe to Manchester International Festival. 

If you click the bell icon next to the subscribe button, you’ll also receive a notification every time we go live. 

Some of our broadcasts will also be available to watch live on the Facebook app; follow us here to be notified each time a broadcast starts. 


On Your Computer 

If you’re joining us each week from a laptop or desktop computer, you can choose to watch on the YouTube website – we’ll post links to each stream on our website and social media channels every week.

Some of our broadcasts will also be available to watch live on Facebook – follow us here to be notified each time a broadcast starts every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
