Louder Than Words is the genre-based literary Festival celebrating words – oral, written and published - associated with the music industry. Authors, artists, poets, performers, lyrics and lyricists, journalists, DJs, bloggers and publishers of music and popular culture are all included.
The weekend Festival is based at a single location - The Palace Hotel, Manchester - where all involved can meet to hear, share, discuss and celebrate the best of published and unpublished words associated with music and popular culture industries.
Unlike Frank Zappa’s much quoted interpretation of music-writing, Louder Than Words promotes the craft, conducts interviews with thinking people, encourages reading and aims to develop artistic appreciation of all-comers through engagement.
Louder Than Words 2016 includes 'in conversation with...' sessions, panel discussions, interviews, workshops, performances and casual opportunities for engaging with like-minded individuals; each encouraging interaction and engagement with performers, authors, editors, publicists, reviewers, press, artists and aficionados.
From Rock to Pop and Punk to Folk, from Poetry to Publishing, Art and Performance and all things in between, Louder Than Words Festival has something for everyone - engagement and involvement are central to all we do. Join us and enjoy a taste of something different!
