Sounds From The Other City FAQs

Unfortunately we can’t issue you with a refund if you can’t make the event due to work commitments or your mates have dropped out. In these circumstances, we advise passing on your tickets privately to avoid losing out on the money spent. Refunds can only be offered if the event is cancelled or postponed, as agreed upon purchase.

There are 3 ticket tiers this year, each with limited availability.

There is no difference in the festival access for each of these tiers – all ticket holders and guests get the same access, there is no such thing as a VIP section at Sounds!

For 2023 all tickets are online at the same time, so that those who could afford to can opt to pay slightly more for their ticket. Sounds From The Other City are amazed and humbled at the amount of people who have taken the decision to do just this – thank you, to all of you!

This means there are more of the lower price tickets available for those who have more limited financial means, meaning better access for more people.

However, the lower tiers are not available forever so please don’t put off buying your ticket!

Check the ticket page for more information and latest availability.


The Sounds from the Other City wristband exchange is located at Regent Trading Estate, Oldfield Rd, M5 4DE. You’ll need to visit here first to exchange your ticket for a wristband that will gain you access to the individual venues, including afterparty venues. It opens at 2pm on the day of the festival, Sunday May 1st and closes at 9pm.

Children aged 13 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. It’s worth bringing some ID if they look older than 13.

Anyone under the age of 18 wishing to attend the festival MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian over the age of 25.

Please note that a lot of the venues at SFTOC are temporary or non-standard venue spaces and do not have baby changing facilities. We advise that all children wear ear defenders when inside venues with live music and djs.

No, there is only one ticket to Sounds From The Other City. The festival firmly believe in championing new artists and ideas and want everyone to step into their melting pot of discovery as equals. Your wristband will grant entry to all daytime and afterparty venues, subject to capacity
