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.

Our 2024 line-up features Mercury Prize nominee C Duncan, Australian Music Prize nominee Belle Chen, the BBC 6 Music-championed Laura J Martin and two Toronto-based artists in troubadour Marker Starling and multi-instrumentalist Eliza Niemi. Listen to all five artists on our Spotify playlist:
