Manc-toberfest comes to BEC Arena this OctoberOktoberfest… with a Manchester twist! Beers, bands, Bavarian decor and more!
It’s almost that time of year again when we celebrate the festival that is all things beer from Friday 30th September 2022 to Sunday 2nd October 2022. This year, we’re excited to bring you Oktoberfest with a twist. Our take on the traditional festival features some of the best tribute bands celebrating Manchester’s rich music heritage. Get ready for this one, it’s going to be a huge weekend jam-packed with music, food, and more steins than you can shake a stick at.
We’ve got a wealth of talented tribute bands including The Ultimate Stone Roses (The Stone Roses), Appy Mondays (Happy Mondays), The Oasis Experience (Oasis), Courtbetweeners (The Courteeners), These Smiths (The Smiths), and Noel Gallaghers High Flying Carpets (Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds). What a lineup… these bands have been busy this year, having performed across the UK. We’re looking forward to having them back for another packed Oktoberfest!
We’ll be kitting out the arena with Oktoberfest decoration and traditional Bavarian seating for that authentic Oktoberfest feel. You’ll also be able to try some tasty food at our German food market, which you can wash down with the finest German beers and steins. We’ve teamed up with Manchester Adored’s resident DJ, Dave Sweetmore, who will be hosting across the weekend. To top it all off, The Jager Maestros – a traditional German Oompah Band – will be performing live across Manctoberfest. The Manchester-based band includes 8 top brass players from across the country, with their lead singer also being a stand-up comic. Expect to be entertained!
So, what are you waiting for? Grab your mates and prepare for an Oktoberfest like no other.
