Hey! Manchester is delighted to be curating a stage at this year’s Sounds From The Other Cityour 14th 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, Strange Days and The Beauty Witch – into several of our favourite venues and drinking establishments along Chapel Street.

Hey! Manchester is moving to a new venue in 2024: in the cafe at Salford Museum and Art Gallery! The epicentre of SFTOC shifts along Chapel Street this year to Salford University’s campus, and we’re excited to be right in the heart of it.

This year we’re also partnering with someone new: the Northern Poets Society! So you can expect our live music picks to be interspersed with their tailor-made spoken word selections.

The festival lineup will be announced in the coming weeks – but, in the meantime, check out all the promoters and venues involved in this year’s festival.

Tickets, giving access to all stages, are available from Soundsfromtheothercity.com.

All shows are 18+ unless otherwise stated.
