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 curated by Bad Uncle, Now Wave, Hey! Manchester & Grey Lantern, Comfortable on a Tightrope, The Beauty Witch, TOPP, Tru Luv, Night Fantasy, Good Afternoon, NTS, Shambodie, Ping Pong Club, Family Tree, Young Identity, Aficionado, Inkfolk, Heavenly Recordings & Manchester Midi School.

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

DONATE TO HELP SAVE ISLINGTON MILL:

Islington Mill has a derelict, partially collapsed roof and an expansive fifth floor and attic space which have been in an unusable condition for decades. These upper storeys have been periodically exposed to the weather, rendering them structurally unsound which poses a serious threat to the long term sustainability of our building.

With our eye on the future, we have commissioned an extensive architectural plan which includes a brand new roof and a renovation strategy to utterly transform the upper two floors, bringing 6000 square foot of space into permanent use.

Arts Council England and Salford Council recognise our extraordinary achievements to date, as well as our current desperate condition, and between them they have agreed to donate the bulk of the funds needed for our extensive and urgent programme of repair.

However, in order to release that money, it’s up to us to match those donations with a further £735,000.

History of Sounds From The Other City

Sounds from the Other City is an independent festival of brand new music. Launched in 2005, the event was conceived by Maurice and Mark Carlin who wanted to create a platform for the best young independent promoters presenting the most exciting new music from Manchester and beyond. While running a record label and recording studio at Salford?s Islington Mill, they were enchanted by underused spaces like the Salford Arms and the Albert Vaults, and the one-day event continues to work with new and unusual venues each year in the Chapel Street area.

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 Marina and The Diamonds (2009) and The Whip (2006). Taking in pavement sets by David Thomas Broughton, performances on station platforms, concerts for one in phone booths, groundbreaking visuals, live shows and DJ sets, Sounds is a magical and unique festival experience.
