A collage of 8 different artists from the SFTOC 2023 lineup

Today we reveal another 100 names on the Sounds 2023 line-up, meaning we now have the complete programme ready for Sunday 30th April. So get yourself a brew and head on over to the performance page for a browse…

But where to start with all those options?! Here’s is a smattering of highlights hand selected by members of the SFTOC team:

Riv’s picks

PRNCSS is pure PARTY. This artist is one of the very very best to see live!

PVA, a trio consolidating electronic and industrial music with life-affirming intimacy.

SPIDER is an honest, stark, alt pop upstart whose energy i cannot wait to see live, especially horoscope influenced ‘Water sign’ which is one of my fave tunes of the moment and on point for our Art Direction this year.

Emma’s choices

Tokky Horror‘s sold out show at YES Basement a few weeks back gave me LIFE. Pure queer power which will make you dance to the point of moshing.

Vindya‘s performance is going to be extra special as she’ll be developing it as part of a week-long Samarbeta residency at Islington Mill in the run up to the festival. A truly unique SFTOC experience.

Me Gusta Collective’s Afrodance and Drumming Showcase cannot be missed! Giving everyone life by bringing dancing, drum rhythms and beautiful sounds from around the globe to Salford.

Mark’s highlights

Jelani Blackman is one of West London’s most exciting new voices in grime/rap and has collaborated with Brian Eno & Gorillaz. Very excited to catch this one.

Speedy Wunderground’s latest signings Honeyglaze in St Phil’s will be great.

djlaundrybasket ’cause they sound really fun!

Siân’s top slots

Looking forward to checking out Jessica Winter, who is repping the pop side of the Sounds programme with a mix of 80s, indie and chanteuse sounds.

CURRENTMOODGIRL for that sexy moody moment.

Gracie T on The Beatriarchy stage in The New Oxford for guaranteed pure raving good times! They are also popping up later at the Off With Their Heads afterparty for a B2B with Chandé – for only the 2nd time since THAT Boiler Room set…

Lydia’s best bits

Looking forward to Spencer Cullum bringing some breezy folk to the riverside destination of the Old Pint Pot.

Everywhere TC & The Groove Family go they bring an absolutely buzzing atmosphere with them, it’s going to be such a fun show!

French psych pop Halo Maud for a gorgeous, ethereal set while being cradled by the soft stained-window light of St Philip’s Church. Will be absolutely magic.
