About Salaam Festival

Announcement:

Dear Festival Supporter

"We are postponing Mehfil and our festival programme till Spring/Summer 2023. 

This is due to a combination of visa issues regarding international artists, plus a major setback and loss of agreed donors and finally the financial risk in the current climate. We are unable to deliver Salaam Festival 2022 to the scale and quality that we wish.

The good news is that we will still present a special  one day preview of Iqbal and Arooj Aftab on Sun 24 July at Albert Hall, Manchester. 

The decision to postpone was not easy but as it is our first festival - I believe it is important to safeguard the integrity of our vision, commitment to our team, artist and supplier relationships, and return stronger next year.

I apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience this may have caused you. We call on your love and support to make this ambitious project a reality in 2023."

Yours sincerely
Rizwan Iqbal 
Artistic Director
