Balloon Machine Presents

‘Balloon Machine Presents’ are specially curated evenings in Manchester, UK. We pick two or three acts we love, usually they’ve featured on the website or are scheduled to be, and put them on in unique venues. Set-times are published well-ahead, this means that people with accessibility issues can plan their evening. All shows aim to be finished by 10.30pm (latest), sleep is nearly as important to us as music!

Upcoming

Katy Kirby + Omes + Papergirl at Gullivers Lounge, Manchester, Tuesday 15 October

Katy Kirby of the tastemaking Keeled Scales label makes her Manchester debut at Gullivers Lounge. Keeled Scales is known for their incredible roster (Buck Meek (Big Thief), Sun June and Twain), Katy’s glorious, indie folk deserves its place amongst them.

Support comes from Omes of Devil Town Tapes. His debut EP ‘Boy’ garnered praise from Hullabaloo, Secret Meeting and the Music Mermaid.
