Peter Doherty Coming to Blackthorn!

We are excited to say the least to have the one and only Pete Doherty performing at Blackthorn. 

Peter Hook & The Light - Confirmed

Blackthorn goes weak at the knees as we prepare to welcome one of the founding fathers of Madchester. 

We Are Scientists - Announced

A welcome debut for these New York based rockers. After multiple to 40 singles and successful albums We Are Scientists have cemented their reputation as one of the worlds very best live acts. 


Findlay is one of the most promising up and coming musicians around. A cat scratching in her throat, full of banter and insolent, tearing cracks through nature: Natalie Findlay comes from the same bloodline as PJ Harvey or The Kills’ Alison Mosshart.

Tom Hingely & The Kar-Pets - Catch them on Friday

Tom Hingely, founding member of one of Manchester's best bands plays with the Kar-Pets in a sort of, nearly but not quite, tribute to The Inspiral Carpets


Slight Return, Marblehead Johnson, If... and more - The Bluetones are one of those bands who had more hits than you may at first remember. 


After sharing a stage with Paul Weller and doing support tours with Oasis, The Enemy, Reverend and the Makers, The View, Ian Brown, opening for Happy Mondays at the GMEX and more we are super excited to be hosting Twisted Wheel
