Janelle Monáe makes her MIF debut with an exclusive show on the opening night of MIF19. A singular and spectacular live performer, Monáe received massive acclaim in 2018 for Dirty Computer, which reached the top ten on both sides of the Atlantic and was named NPR’s Album of the Year. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, producer, actress (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) and activist is playing just two UK dates in 2019 – and we’re thrilled she’s joining us for this one-off open-air show at Castlefield Bowl. You are permitted to bring small bags or handbags no larger than 21cm x 29cm (approx A4 size piece of paper). There is no cloakroom at the venue. Photo: JUCO
