Cohesion Live

Freedm At Cohesion Live

Manchester's biggest new music festival, Cohesion Live will feature two Freedm performance spaces in celebration of self expression. The Freedm Tent will be an intimate chill out space combining one off acoustic sessions by acts performing on the day, comedy sketches from the Manchester Comedy store, sets by up and coming music talent, as well as an exclusive artist meet and greet area.

The Freedm stage is dedicated to new music and creative talent, including performances by some of the most talked about up and coming bands.

Freedm: will be a creative community that exists in the virtual world. The website will be an inventive space for self-expression where people can create and trade their talent with others, and potentially gain exposure in the real world. They can bring their art and creativity to life through the technical capability to make and show music, film, art, and more. There will be a recording studio, a gallery with studio space, a library to read and write, and a cinema to up-load their films and watch others from around the world. A place in which to live, learn and share their creativity. Or just hang out.
