The critically acclaimed Sounds From The Other City festival will return for its 13th year in April.

The one day event, which takes place along Chapel Street in Salford, will welcome local bands along with talent from around the world.

On the April 30, a range of old warehouses, churches, pubs and social houses will be transformed into music and art venues.

The celebration of new music, art and performance has presented artists including The Big Moon, the BBC Philharmonic, Marina and the Diamonds and The Tings Tings in the past.

The full line up was announced this morning and promises to be the biggest to date, with bands such as the hotly tipped HMLTD, Flamin Gods, The Orielles along with Faye and Ayse from Savages’ new project OTOMO X all heading to Salford.

Islington Mill, Salford Arms, The Old Pint Pot, The Kings Arms and the United Reformed Church are among those who will host promoters’ acts across the afternoon.

Spoken word pop ups will appear across the festival as well as a specially commissioned musical theatre show designed by the team behind The White Hotel at The Kings Arms.

Visitors are also encouraged to get involved with ‘I’m Sticking With You’, a live participatory event and visual art piece curated by EC Davies.

After selling out of the first two price tiers, tickets cost £23.
