What makes Sounds from the Other City a communal, boundary-free experience” and “an enthralling depiction of the music and arts scene“?

Well the answer is pretty simple. Rather than programme a festival from one small programming team, each year we invite an expansive group of some of the most exciting, enduring and open-minded record labels, live promotors, radio stations, magazines and club nights to programme the sounds they are most excited about Right Now. These are the people that work 9-5 and 5-9, 365 days of year to make the regions creative life so vital and exciting.

Every year Sounds is an intense snapshot of that energy, spilling all over the streets of Salford. And today we are thrilled to release our  CLASS OF 2024, with stages hosted  by:

• Alphaville x Fat Out x The Beauty Witch
• Band on the Wall x Reform Radio
