Sounds From The Other City festival (SFTOC) is a celebration of new music and performance, uniting the cream of the national and international scene with some of the city’s finest independent promoters, collectives and club nights. Happening regularly on the May Day Bank Holiday each year along the Chapel St corridor of the historic city of Salford, 2017 will be the festival’s 13th installment – and the first time since 2006 it has been held in April. With the past 4 editions sold out well in advance of the big day, it is highly recommended that you get your tickets booked early.
