Now in its eighth year, Sounds From The Other City is Salford's unique music happening that springs up at venues all around Chapel Street over one Bank Holiday Sunday.

You simply buy a ticket for £18, and swap it at Islington Mill on the day for a wristband which allows access to every show and party along the route. It's more an experience than a `festival' with all shades of music covered, most of which wouldn't be seen dead near a tv music channel.

There's so much to cover it's best to crawl the SFTOC website www.soundsfromtheothercity.com but here's a venue by venue guide…
