Sounds From the Other City 2020, 2 May 2020, from £27.75 - Book now

One of the country’s foremost festivals showcasing new and emerging talent, Sounds From The Other City will soon be back for its 16th edition.

Since its first outing in 2004, SFTOC has become an underground favourite of music lovers in the north. Championing local promoters, spotlighting pioneering new artists and celebrating Salford’s off-kilter charm, the urban festival is an antidote to the bloated corporate music festivals that surround it.

Whilst in previous years the festival has sprawled across the city, 2019’s special quindecennial edition saw all of the action packed into one site, with 1500 people descending on Salford’s Regent Trading Estate to watch the likes of Black Midi, The Orielles and Barney Artist.

In 2020, the festival is returning home. Most of the action will take place on Chapel Street in Salford, but as in years gone by, there will parties popping up across Salford and even some in central Manchester. Expect the strange, the surreal and the spectacular as boundary-pushing art, music, and culture returns to the pubs, churches and community corners of our two cities on the 2nd May 2020.

At yet, the line-up is still under wraps, but make sure to check back here soon for the latest word!
