Debuted in 2016, FOUNDATIONS is a two day micro-festival celebrating grassroots live music, creative collaboration, community networking and multimedia art/film and performance.
A joint venture between Manchester labels AnalogueTrash and Valentine Records, and featuring an eclectic line up of artists and friends, FOUNDATIONS is about art, space and community – and how we can reimagine a conventional music festival as a more collaborative and immersive experience.
Foundations is about beginnings. It’s a recognition that, despite the high-flying nature of many of Greater Manchester’s cultural exports and thriving international reputation across the arts, it’s actually the grassroots, the pop-ups, start-ups and off-the-wall thinking that both provokes and sustains the art/music/film and creative communities in and around the city.
