Hey! Manchester is delighted to be curating a stage at this year’s Sounds From The Other City – our 12th 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, Grey Lantern, Fat Out and The Beauty Witch – into several of our favourite venues and drinking establishments along Chapel Street.

Hey! Manchester is excited to be returning to a very special venue: 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.

For SFTOC 2022 delighted to be partnering up at St Phil’s with Strange Days. Strange Days have been promoting the best new and exciting artists in and around the city since 2014. From working with acclaimed international artists such King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard to pioneering the finest homegrown talent with the likes of W. H. Lung.

Our combined line-up this year features former Let’s Wrestle frontman Wesley Gonzalez, ‘elegant folk-rock and understated free-jazz’ trio Modern Nature, Freya Beer (‘an ethereal and fascinating presence’), Amsterdam’s beamy-grinned, indie-pop powerhouse Pip Blom, SPLINT offering ‘a sound that ranges from raw, unadulterated garage rock to some psychedelic undertones’ and LYR – aka Simon Armitage, Patrick James Pearson and Richard Walters. You can listen to the artists playing our stage below:
