Manchester International Festival and The Warehouse Project are back together again, bringing an unrivalled array of headliners to Manchester’s Mayfield as part of the new Special Edition series. To spread the news we worked directly with MIF and took to the streets of Manchester, posting this colourful 4 sheet campaign, creative by North Design, across key sites throughout the city.

MIF is an art fair staged every two years, bringing together new artists, original work and special events. For this unique partnership they’ve joined forces with The Warehouse Project to bring some of the biggest names in music to Manchester. Curated alongside Mary Anne Hobbs of BBC Radio 6 Music fame, the collaboration will welcome everyone from dance floor heroes Bicep to the radical and brilliant Fever Ray, as they perform in the former railway station venue later this year.

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