Now in its 13th year, Manchester International Festival (MIF) brings together artists from different art forms and backgrounds. By weaving them together in a celebration of cultural unity that takes place all across Greater Manchester, it’s a biannual event that immerses all of the city.

MIF covers the whole spectrum – it’s an artist-led festival presenting new works from the performing arts, visual arts and popular culture. The lineup has just been announced and it’s safe to say, we’re more than a little excited by this year’s programme – it might just be the best one yet. From Yoko Ono to Skepta, Idris Elba to Kwame Kwei-Armah, what’s not to like.

To help promote the inspiring festival we have put up a series of 4 sheet and 48 sheet posters around Manchester to get the city excited about the events to come.
