Hey! Manchester is proud to have been invited to be part of this year’s Sounds From The Other City. Now in its fourth year, this one-day festival celebrates Salford – Manchester’s city-within-a-city – as a great music venue and all-round fun place to be.

SFTOC invites local promoters (this year, ourselves, Lamb & Wolf, Contort Yourself, Golden Lab, Club Brenda, Up the Racket, Red Deer Club, Prostitutes and Policemen, Bring on the Dancing Horses, and Comfortable on a Tightrope) to each set up a stage in pubs and churches along Chapel Street. We, in turn, invite some of our favourite acts to perform in a showcase of sorts.

Hey! Manchester’s stage – upstairs at the Salford Arms – so far features David Thomas Broughton, Last Harbour, Vinny Peculiar, the Declining Winter, the Bottomfeeders and Planet Earth – with two or three more to be confirmed soon. You can watch bands on all eight stages with a single ticket, available now from Quaytickets.com. Oh, and it’s on a Bank Holiday Sunday, so you can stay out late at the aftershow party at Islington Mill.



All shows are 18+ unless otherwise stated.
