I had a great time, it was just as good as last year (which was my first time). Great music line up - and discovered bands I hadnt heard of before. Would definitely recommend to people next year!

First visit to this festival, definitely not the last! Great variety of acts, venues great and not too far apart and a great chilled vibe! Cannot fault the organisation, fabulous day throughout.

Excellent music, atmosphere and food. Loved getting to know new venues in the 'other' city. Only downside is the lack of variety in a number of the bars. I have a year to train myself to like real ale!

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.
