Things to do in Manchester this weekend & beyond: 10-16 June 2022

We’ve picked out five fun events in Manchester and Greater Manchester to keep you entertained over the weekend and into next week.


One of Manchester’s biggest annual music events is back with a bang at Heaton Park this weekend. The two-day festival will play host to rapper 50 Cent’s only UK gig this year, along with sets from Chase & Status, Jamie XX and many more.

The Killers

In a mega weekend of gigs, America’s most joyful indie rock ‘n’ rollers return to Manchester for one night only on Saturday. Expect euphoric singalongs, much dancing and a fantastic night out if reviews of earlier gigs in their UK tour are anything to go by. There are a very small number of VIP platinum tickets left on Ticketmaster at time of writing, priced from a hefty £200. Travel advice is here.

Oasis tribute by candlelight

If you fancy seeing a candlelit tribute to one of Manchester’s most iconic bands then look no further. Listen to the rock-pop vibes of Oasis as you’ve never heard them before as a talented violinist and band perform magical renditions of everything from ‘Wonderwall’ to ‘Champagne Supernova’.

The first date is on 10 June at Halle St Peter’s but with multiple dates well into August, prepare to be taken into the clouds while gently illuminated by candlelight. Book at Feverup.

Harry Styles is coming to Glasgow.
