Sounds from the Other City
Bank Holiday Sunday May 5th
Various Venues, Chapel Street, Salford
Sounds From the Other City festival (SFTOC) is a celebration of new music and performance, uniting the cream of the national and international scene with some of the citys finest independent promotors, collectives and club nights.
Happening regularly on the MayDay Bank Holiday each year, SFTOC takes in a huge array of unusual places and spaces along Chapel Street, the historic centre of Salford and a stones throw from Manchester city centre. The festival has set up home in proper old pubs such as The Kings Arms, The Crescent and The Rover Returns, to the beautiful St Philips and Sacred Trinity Churches, Salford Central Train Station as well as the inimitable Islington Mill.
2013 will be the 9th anniversary of what has become one of Greater Manchesters premier days out for lovers of new music and good times. Growing in capacity from 400 to 2000 this year, highlights include the first ever gig by the Ting Tings (2007) and career-making sets by, Alt-J (2011) Marina and The Diamonds (2009) and The Whip (2006).
Taking in pavement sets, performances on station platforms, concerts for one in phone booths, groundbreaking visuals, live shows and DJ sets, Sounds is unique and magical experience.
