The full programme for MIF13 is now announced and tickets are on sale via www.mif.co.uk / Quaytickets on 0844 375 2013
Tickets are selling well across the Festival and some shows are currently sold out for the entire run. These are:
Macbeth live performance
The xx in Residence
Both Macbeth and The xx have small audiences – the Festival could have sold these events many times over. The limited capacity is part of the artists' vision for the work and both shows are playing throughout the entire Festival to accommodate as many people as possible. In response to demand we have announced a big screen relay to 5000 people for Branagh's Macbeth on 20 July; tickets are still available for this event.
Some other events are sold out on specific nights with plenty of tickets available for other performances; this includes Massive Attack v Adam Curtis and Rite of Spring.
MIF supports artists to make new work – as plans grow and change we are sometimes able to release more tickets for shows which have been listed as sold out. This has been the case for several of MIF13 shows including Goldfrapp, Mogwai/Zidane and Masque of Anarchy – these shows currently have availability. We will continue to release tickets when we can; information is posted on this website and Twitter.com/MIFestival for up to the moment ticket availability.
We have a number of tickets available for every performance at £12 for Greater Manchester residents on a lower wage, bookable by phone only on a first-come-first-served, honesty basis and via existing community networks. There are also several free events that do not require a pre-booked ticket, see www.mif.co.uk/about-us/mif-brochures for details.
The Festival's policy on reselling tickets is very clear. We aim to stop the practice of reselling and therefore any tickets bought to be resold or touted will be cancelled with immediate effect. This includes tickets sold through Ebay, Viagogo, and other ticket reselling websites, so you risk spending money on invalid tickets if you purchase tickets from these sites.
All tickets for Manchester International Festival events are sold through our box office partner Quaytickets and other external ticket agents. Tickets booked directly from venues or other agents are strictly non-refundable. If available, Quaytickets will facilitate exchanges between MIF events. Should you be unable to attend an event due to extenuating circumstances, please email email@example.com; we will deal with refund/exchange requests on a case by case basis.
