The Hope, on Eccles Old Road, stages Richie Syrett, Black Sonic Revolver and ISSIMO, while, in Monton, The Park showcases Hartless & The Matchstick Ghosts, Blank Cheque and Kellys Heroes.

Even Media City is getting in on the Salford act this year with gigs at the Dock Bar and Lounge on the Piazza (Ed Blaney and acoustics sets from John Mackie; Chris Flynn; Judith Ude, Death To The Strange and Ryan Jarvis).

The Salford Museum and Art Gallery is the first venue putting on a Festival event, with The Jane and Mike Band appearing at 1pm and Blue Zen at 3pm on Thursday afternoon.

"Again we have some brilliant bands/acts/poets/DJs all coming to play in Salford pubs, cafes and bars, real gigs and again most are free" Festival organiser Ed Blaney "This year is the biggest one so far and will be rock n roll all the way. Anyone wanting to help out or get involved can, we are all about Salford, it's people, and we want everyone to have a brilliant time, four days of live music, club nights, after after-parties…it's gonna be another cracker in Salford."

Over the next few days, the Salford Star is going to try and preview as much of the Festival as possible, which is almost impossible. But check out details of all the venues, bands and more at the Salford Music Festival website www.salfordmusicfestival.co.uk
