London-based jazz composer and performer Sarathy Korwar has been added to the Fat Out Stage alongside Charles Hayward, Bad Body and Berlin-based ambient glitch producer Yr Lovely Dead Moon.

Started in 2007 by Emma Thompson and Verity Gardner as a platform for independent artists in Salford and Manchester, Fat Out’s first festival was in 2010. Now in its third instalment, Fat Out Fest prides itself on the celebration of independent events amid the surplus of “commercially-led festivals”.

The event will take place from April 14-16 at Islington Mill in Salford and in surrounding warehouse venues with more acts, instalments, workshops and performances pieces to be announced. For tickets and more information, click here.
