Hey! Manchester has been invited to organise a stage at this year’s Sounds From The Other City! SFTOC is a one-day music festival that celebrates the diversity of Greater Manchester’s ‘other city’. The 12-hour aural orgy is moving west this year, taking in the Kings Arms, Islington Mill, the Salvation Army’s music hall, the Crescent and the Pint Pot’s two-tiered venue. Hey! Manchester is teaming up with Cardiff’s SÅµn Festival this year in a very special venue: St Philip’s Church:
We’re putting on Brighton’s Thomas White (one half of Electric Soft Parade and one quarter of Brakes), Cambridge, MA’s Damon & Naomi (ex-Galaxie 500 members), Californian-raised, Manchester-based Jesca Hoop (one of our rising stars for 2010), Welsh band Y Niwl (hand-picked by our friends at SÅµn Festival), The Co-Operative TV ad favourites Tim and Sam Band, one of this city’s unsung treasures At Swim Two Birds, young folkster Jo Rose and Berlin-based Australian artist Jasmina Maschina. This is the finalised lineup, running from 3.45pm until 11pm.
Tickets, giving access to all stages, cost Â£15 and are available from Quaytickets.com, Islington Mill and Piccadilly Records.
