Only live show of 2011 at Manchester International Festival

True Faith, part of 2011's Manchester International Festival, celebrates the work of Manchester’s established and emerging talent, including LoneLady in her only live gig of 2011.

Hosted by Dave Haslam, Close Up is a short series of exclusive on stage interviews with Manchester icons Bernard Sumner (Joy Division/New order), music writer and broadcaster Paul Morley and former Magazine/Bad Seeds bass player and soundtrack composer Barry Adamson.

The Live strand features a handpicked selection of Manchester’s finest new bands, who will perform original material and one-off covers with some very special guests.

Other highlights at the festival include a three-week residency from Bjork who premieres her Biophilia live show.
