Curating shows for the rowdy, weird & experimental in Salford since 2008
Fat Out Fest is our flagship event that we have produced sporadically since 2011. The festival started as a two day DIY punk festival with bands performing back to back between the Islington Mill event & gallery spaces. The 2017 edition of the festival saw us break out of Islington Mill and take over two adjacent warehouse spaces for three days of continuous experimental music and art performances.
Fat Out Fest is now a collaborative celebration of music and visual arts. Since the 2014 edition we have invited in chosen curators to help us produce our festival, which continually develops our program making it more interesting and diverse.
Our previous curatorial partners are; VideoJam, Gizeh Records, Tombed Visions, Opal Tapes, Baba Yaga’s Hut, Basilica Hudson, Le Guess Who?, Cheryl, The Quietus, Lovers & Lollypops, Supersonic Festival, Sweet Sticky & The Wire.
Plans are beginning to unfold for our 2018 festival ….. Watch this space
