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 each 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.
