Win tickets to Sounds From The Other City Festival, Salford
WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS TO SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY MUSIC FESTIVAL ON MAY 1, 2016, AT VARIOUS VENUES ON CHAPEL STREET, SALFORD
Northern Soul has teamed up with Sounds From The Other City Festival to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to the acclaimed all day festival of new music, art and street food.
Sounds From the Other City Festival (SFTOC) showcases new music, performance and art, uniting national and international artists with Greater Manchester’s finest independent promoters, collectives and club nights. The festival takes in intriguing and often underused venues up and down Salford’s historic Chapel Street corridor. Over the past 12 years, the festival has seen early career performances from an eclectic array of artists from Alt-J to Lapalux, the Ting Tings to Jane Weaver, Horsebeach and Sampha.
Acts playing across 16 stages including former Race Horses frontman Meilyr Jones and one of the most hotly tipped bands of 2016, Pumarosa. The bill also includes the critically acclaimed cosmic pop of Gwenno, Leeds-based techno fans Chrononautz, one of the UK’s finest exponents of modern folk and avant garde composition Laura Cannell, Bristol’s heavyweight psychic voyagers Anthroprophh, as well as The Magnetic North and Bella Union’s new signing exmagician.
New for this year are stages co-curated with Café Oto (at Islington Mill with Fat Out),The Quietus (at The Kings Arms with Grey Lantern) and Sways Records/The White Hotel, switching their Lower Salford homes for the banks of the River Irwell for the epic 12-hour party marathon entitled Salford & Gomorrah taking place upstairs at The Old Pint Pot.
Part festival, street party, exhibition, rave and immersive architectural tour, Sounds From The Other City sets up shop in fascinating places like Paul Heaton’s Kings Arms pub, Islington Mill’s pitch-perfect live room, the historic public meeting ground of Bexley Square, disused railway arches plus a SFTOC first at Salford Cathedral. What’s more, every SFTOC festival looks and feels totally different, which is just one reason why this free-thinking celebration of music, art and Chapel Street has sold out almost every year since it started.

@Amy_Fleur_Stone @LaingArtGallery @BBCFOUR Oh, there is so much here. On the surface a poem by Keats but actually Keats was referring/stealing verse much, much older. And then the painter and his muse - she died during the painting. So all the classic themes of Isabella were mirrored in the painter's tragedy.
