Madchester is a phenomenon associated with the independent music scene of Manchester, England, during the late 1980s and early 1990s. This style is known for incorporating elements such as Funk, Neo-Psychedelia, Indie Pop, Acid House and Jangle Pop, among others, to the Alternative Dance sound pioneered by the Mancunian band New Order. The Haçienda nightclub, co-founded by New Order and Tony Wilson, became an important hub for the development and rise to prominence of Madchester bands such as The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, Inspiral Carpets and The Charlatans. Rave culture and the influence of drugs, especially MDMA, have become associated with this scene.

Baggy, which shared similar influences and general sound with this scene, has become synonymous with Madchester while also including bands that weren't part of the Manchester music scene, such as The Soup Dragons, EMF and early Blur. The genre is named as such due to the fashion of this scene, which heavily featured baggy jeans and brightly coloured tops in a throwback to the 1960s.

While Baggy/Madchester would eventually suffer a decline of commercial success and critical acclaim, the style and its popularity played an important role as a precursor for the rise of the mid-1990s Britpop genre.
