Sounds From The Other City Tickets
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 city's finest independent promoters, collectives and club nights.
Stages have been curated by Now Wave, Video Jam, Grey Lantern, Hey! Manchester, Fat Out, Wot God Forgot, Gizeh Records, Tru Luv & Red Deer Club, Red Laser, El Diablos, Wet Play & many more.
More party than festival, Sounds from the Other City (SFTOC) is unique in that it’s a roving event that takes in a huge range of venues (and between-venue spaces) up and down Salford’s diverse Chapel Street. Catch your new favourite band in a church or phone box, art gallery, cafe or converted cotton mill. Everything is dressed up for the big day and the atmosphere is as much a part of the party as the acts themselves. It’s also where you’ll find the planet’s most awesome new music all in one place.
“Sounds has become one of the country’s foremost festivals showcasing new and emerging talent” Music OMH
'SFTOC itself is the truest representation of what manchester music is today'” NME
“As anyone who has ever attended it will know, Sounds from the Other City is a much-treasured event, an antidote to the bloated corporate music festivals that loom on the horizon at this time of year” The Skinny
'Using lots of little quirky of the beaten track venues, Sounds from the Other City is one of the most exciting events in the region” Clash Magazine
“This annual event is important for local bands, as well as drawing attention to the rejuvenation of an area that is riddled with urban decay. Long may it continue.” Silent Radio
“It’s the spirit of this festival that keeps us all coming back, the sense of celebration that in no way feels forced or phony, the prospect that you might bump into someone you know at any time, swapping stories and making plans to meet that may or may not come off. In so many ways, who you watch is beside the point.” Chimp Magazine
