Salford's festival of new music and art • Every early May Bank Holiday •

Where do I get my wristband on the day?

The Sounds from the Other City wristband exchange is located at Regent Trading Estate, Oldfield Rd, M5 4DE. You’ll need to visit here first to exchange your ticket for a wristband that will gain you access to the individual venues, including afterparty venues. It opens at 2pm on the day of the festival, Sunday May 1st and closes at 9pm.

Can I buy a separate ticket for individual stages

No. There is only one ticket to SFTOC. We firmly believe in championing new artists and ideas and we want everyone to step into our melting pot of discovery as equals. Your wristband will grant entry to all daytime and afterparty venues, subject to capacity.

Can I get a personal assistant or carer ticket?

Yes you can. Please email info@soundsfromtheothercity.com under the heading ‘personal assistant ticket’ with proof of your ticket purchase and eligibility.

Below are a few of the types of proof of eligibility we accept, but please do email us with your individual circumstances and we will do our very best to accommodate:

  • Middle or Higher rate DLA for care and/or mobility
  • Receipt of Enhanced Rate Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • Or Registered Deaf or Blind

Can I bring my child to SFTOC? Do they need a ticket?

Children aged 13 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. It’s worth bringing some ID if they look older than 13.

Everyone aged 14 or over on Sunday May 1st 2022 (the day of the event ), must have bought a full ticket.

Anyone under the age of 18 wishing to attend the festival MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian over the age of 25.

Please note that a lot of the venues at SFTOC are temporary or non-standard venue spaces and do not have baby changing facilities. We advise that all children wear ear defenders when inside venues with live music and djs.
