The Castlefield Bowl (originally the Castlefield Events Arena and formerly the Castlefield Arena) is an outdoor events pavilion in the inner city conservation area of Castlefield in Manchester in North West England. The arena is often used for food festivals and music gigs.

In 2017, it played host to the city's 'Sounds Of The City' series of shows. Artists to perform include Arcade Fire, Blossoms, James, The Verve and Blink 182.[1] Shed Seven, Hacienda Classical, Rag'n'Bone Man, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, and The Levellers played in 2018.[2]

Previously the arena has played host to New Order, The Last Shadow Puppets, The Strypes, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Noel Gallagher and The Courteeners.

In 2010, the arena was used as a Hyundai fan park showing all football matches from the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
