Brilliant line-up announced for NME and Zig-Zag present CineJam in Manchester

NME and Zig-Zag present CineJam - celebrating music and film in Manchester

NME has launched a stellar line-up of music and film for our first ever CineJam event in Manchester.

After the success of our Bastille-curated CineJam at Peckham’s Bussey Building, now we’ll be taking the event to the North this winter.

On Tuesday December 12, NME and Zig-Zag presents CineJam in Manchester – taking over Band On The Wall with a special screening of the cult movie ’24 Hour Party People’, before performances from ‘ones to watch’ False Advertising and homecoming heroes Everything Everything. For your chance to win tickets, visit here.


The Michael Winterbottom-directed ’24 Hour Party People’ stars Steve Coogan as the Manchester music legend Tony Wilson. The acclaimed comedy covers all the chaos and excess that led to the rise and fall of Factory Records – giving the world the likes of Joy Division, New Order, The Happy Mondays and many more.

This summer saw Everything Everything follow up a string of epic festival performances with their acclaimed new album ‘A Fever Dream‘. As the band have recently announced their biggest ever headline tour to date, this will be a rare opportunity to get up close and intimate with the art-pop wunderkids.

Support comes from the rising talent of fellow Mancs, the thundering and melodic ‘distorted pop’ trio False Advertising.

Meanwhile, Everything Everything’s upcoming headline tour dates are below. For tickets and information, visit here.
