Established in 2012, the festival celebrates local talent from the north east of England. This year's instalment will take place in the courtyard of New World Trading Company's Manchester pub, The Oast House.

As a title sponsor of the festival, Budweiser Budvar will deliver a wooden Budvar Bar, which has been hand decorated with red typography. 

Acts on the line-up include acoustic cover band Strobe Duo, who hail from Leeds, Jazz-pop musician Tom Seals, and five-piece Amped Up, who met at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Tickets to the event are free, and aside from music visitors will also get to interact with exotic animals courtesy of local handler Safari Phil.

Spinfest has been visiting The Oast House throughout bank holidays this year, including Easter Sunday. In 2015 the event was sponsored by Bulleit bourbon.

Simon George, UK sales director, Budweiser Budvar UK, said: "We don't take short cuts in our brewing and never before have we had the opportunity for so many consumers to discover that for themselves at events. We are delighted to be forging such a strong relationship with The New World Trading Company who are an outstanding retailer."

Chris Hill, managing director, The New World Trading Company, added: "Now in its fourth year, Spinfest has become a regular date on the Manchester calendar, offering free access to a great selection of up and coming local music talent in the heart of the city.

"To link up with International brands like Budweiser Budvar is fantastic testament to how popular Spinfest has become as an event offering great music, great drinks and food."
