On her BBC Radio 6 Music programme (weekdays, 7.30 am to 10.30 am), Lauren Laverne has revealed that the 6 Music Festival 2024 is scheduled to occur from Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th March.

The flagship live music festival of the station, now permanently situated in Greater Manchester, will once again showcase distinctive performances not found elsewhere. Additionally, DJ sets from both emerging and established acts will be featured.

The festival will present a blend of daytime, evening, and late-night events held at the region’s renowned venues.

Samantha Moy, Head of BBC Radio 6 Music says: “Last year’s festival was a triumph – amazing artists, distinctive and world-exclusive performances and a true celebration of Greater Manchester’s ever-flourishing music scene. This year we’re back to the Festival’s home to bring you your favourite bands and artists with a 6 Music Festival twist. See you in March!”

The complete lineup and venue details will be disclosed in the New Year.

Numerous 6 Music presenters will broadcast their shows live from MediaCityUK in Salford and the festival venues during the event.

Highlights will also be televised on BBC Four, accessible on BBC iPlayer, and the BBC Music YouTube channel.
