It’s the places and spaces that bring the community of Sounds together and create a journey of discovery that we can share with you. And as always, for 2024 we wanted to make it a tasty old pick’n’mix of our favourite haunts alongside something completely new.
So here’s a quick rundown of where your feet could be taking you on Bank Holiday Sunday 5th May…
Straight from the off you’ll need to head to pastures new to pick up your wristband, as this year’s festival hub will be hosted at the University of Salford. We’ll be in some of the most iconic buildings in the area: the historic Peel Hall, Maxwell Hall and Salford Museum & Art Gallery, with a central outside stage on The Green. Plus, just over the rainbow pedestrian crossing on The Crescent, we’ll be taking over the gorgeous Old Fire Station Cafe and even popping into the Working Class Movement Library.
Down the road towards Chapel Street we’ll be keeping it classic with the riverside vibes of the The Old Pint Pot (keep those fingers crossed for sunshine) and the gorgeous surrounds of St Philip’s Church.
Since its reinstatement to the festival site last year, our home of Islington Mill continues to develop and bloom and this year we’ll be in various spots in the building; including Mirage Bar, Partisan Club and yes, the long-missed Courtyard will be open too.
Finally, Sounds wouldn’t be Sounds without a Bexley Square party so we return with an outdoor stage in the square, upstairs at Porta and of course, everyone’s favourite rave den, the back room of The New Oxford.
