Hey! Manchester is delighted to be curating a stage at this year’s Sounds From The Other City – our eighth year in a row! SFTOC is a one-day music festival that celebrates the diversity of Greater Manchester’s ‘other city’.

The 12-hour event places many of the city’s favourite promoters –  including Now Wave, Comfortable on A Tightrope, Grey Lantern and Bad Uncle – into several of our favourite venues and drinking establishments along Chapel Street.

Hey! Manchester is excited to be returning to a very special venue in 2016: St Philip’s Church. The building is one of Greater Manchester’s finest Georgian buildings, dating back to 1825, and its Greek style is unique in Salford.

Our line-up this year features Meilyr Jones, Gwenno, the Magnetic North, exmagician, Tacocat, She Drew The Gun and She Makes War – a diverse collection of artists, ranging from psychedelia and baroque pop, via shoegaze and surf rock, through to dreamy pop and folk music. We love them all – and we’re hoping you might too. Give them a spin below:
