SFTOC is the perfect urban festival. Numerous venues, art, spoken word, and most importantly - the music. From the soul-fired sharp beat-pop of Man and the Echo, the snarl and wry hooks of The Big Moon, to the well wrought and magically baroque songs of Meilyr Jones, every act was it's own sweet thing. Perfectly formed or mangled noise, the variety is infectious and this is a real festival of discovery. You can plan, but there will always be someone you miss, so in the end it is worth stumbling upon random acts in different venues and enjoying whatever you find. It is a calendar highlight and puts Salford square on the musical map, carving a new landscape that is artistically diverse and brings a bit of proper culture to a Bank Holiday Sunday.

I thought it was a really nice event, well organised with loads of different kinds of music.

I was quite upset at the way people were behaving in Church. I understand that they must have agreed to host it. However, the Church hosts many music/ cultural events with no behaviour like that. It was as though it was just used by people as a shell, with no recognition of it's spiritual status, with a bar in it. People shouting, and behaving in a way that I felt was disrespectful. I have been to events in Church before, ie. jazz gigs/ exhibitions with drinks served also, and I have to say I was appalled at what was going on on Sunday. Why should there be signs put up to remind people of where they are? Perhaps in future, it would be best to remind attendees to demonstrate a bit of respect, as they are not in a secular venue. I had to leave as I felt so uncomfortable.

Such a great festival and puts Salford on the map for music. St Philips church was a beautiful venue, and I spent most of my time at the old pint pot - the sways stage. They had brilliant Manchester bands on - my favourite being parade who are a new band.

Great day of music, food and fun. Enjoyed finding new venues. A better map and some pre-event litter-picking would have improved the experience.

I loved the ability to simply walk from one venue to another within the space of a few minutes, encountering the unpredictable. The only dampener was the weather, but this is Salford - we must accept a certain amount of wet. If there is a problem, it's that things occur simultaneously, which, as problems go, is a good one to have. I shall definitely be back in 2017!
