Sounds From the Other City (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 promotors, collectives and club nights.
Happening regularly on the MayDay Bank Holiday each year, SFTOC takes in a huge array of unusual places and spaces along Chapel Street, the historic centre of Salford and a stones throw from Manchester city centre. The festival has set up home in proper old pubs such as The Kings Arms, The Crescent & The Rover Returns, to the beautiful St Philips & Sacred Trinity Churches, Salford Central Train Station as well as its hub and home at Islington Mill.
Taking in pavement sets, performances on station platforms, concerts for one in phone booths, groundbreaking visuals, live shows and DJ sets, Sounds is unique and magical experience.
This years line-ups and stage are put together by the following promotors
