Hey! Manchester is delighted to be curating a stage at this year’s Sounds From The Other City – our seventh 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, Wotgodforgot, Red Deer Club and Bad Uncle – into several of our favourite venues and drinking establishments: the Kings Arms, Islington Mill, First Chop Brewing arm and the Old Pint Pot.

Hey! Manchester is excited to be returning to a very special venue in 2015: 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 Jane Weaver, Zun Zun Egui, Pinkshinyultrablast, Brown Brogues v PINS, Cale Tyson and Will Varley – a diverse collection of artists, ranging from psychedelic pop and post-punk, via shoegaze and garage, through to country and folk music. We love them all – and we’re hoping you might too. Give them a spin below:

Tickets, priced £20 and giving access to all stages, are available from North Tea Power, the Font bars and online via Skiddle.com.
