Sounds from the Other City | Chapel Street, May Day Bank Holiday Sunday 1 May 2022
Sounds from the Other City (SFTOC) is a festival of new music and art. A day of discovery. A community festival in its truest form. It brings together the independent creative scenes of Manchester, and more importantly Salford, to create something downright magical. A unique experience that can enjoyed by everyone, whether they are on stage, behind the scenes or just soaking it all in with a drink in hand.
Made by music lovers for music lovers, since 2005, SFTOC has shone a spotlight on the very best emerging and underground talent around. 18 years on and the aim is still the same: Every May Day Bank Holiday we invite you to come and find your new favourite act whilst rolling around the off-kilter beauty of Salford, the often overlooked ‘other city’ to Manchester.
