Save Event: Sounds from the Other City

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


In 2004 the idea of ‘Sounds from the Other City’ was born, with the intention to do two simple things.


Firstly, to celebrate and foreground the work of independent promoters in Salford and Manchester, shining a light on the people who work tirelessly to bring new music and artists to public attention, often with little recognition of that invaluable role they play.

Secondly, to draw attention to the off-kilter beauty of Salford, the often overlooked ‘other city’ to Manchester, through embedding live music and art everywhere, from the Doctors surgery to Churches, Pubs and Community centres.

And out of these roots has grown this curiosity of a festival, one that is co-designed by our fellow promotors and audience and has become synonymous with its community, ultimately becoming a celebration of the most exciting emerging names in music.
