The fourth Salford Music Festival explodes this week, between Thursday 26th and Sunday 29th September…240 singers, bands, DJs, rappers and crooners covering every type of sounds on the planet, in 25 venues spread all over the city.

The Festival kicks off on Thursday with Broughton's Ren Harvieu doing a special concert at St Philips Church off Chapel Street, and on the same night there's loads happening around the pubs, bars and cafes of Salford…

From the Ashley Brook in Langworthy (Ben Trethewey, Suzie Does It, The Senior's), to the Deli-Lama on Chapel Street (Angie M, Laura & Claire, Harry Wilkinson, Lei Jennings), to the Eagle Inn on Collier Street (Race to the Sea, Daznez, Aidan Cross and Johann Kloos), there's all sorts of tunes going off.

Meanwhile there's three pubs on the `Height hosting gigs – The Wellington (Electronic Pimp, Without Andrew and Jolanga), The Red Lion (Sam Moran, The Jane and Mike Band and Jess Harwood), and the Wagon and Horses (Aaron, Jealous of Girls and Dan Fable).

The Lower Kersal Social Club weighs in with the `Punkiside of Salford' starring Aidan Cross & Johann Kloos; Veladrome, Half VI, Dischord and Potential Victims.

Around Chapel Street virtually every pub has something going on… Thursday sees The Black Lion's two stages debut with Ellie Dibben, Liam McClair, Flossie and Alex Chow on Stage 1, and Hey Bulldog, The Slow Readers Club, Gareth Icke, Big Unit After Party, Vince Vega, Dave Mathews, Big Unit DJs and Gavner P on Stage 2.

The Salford Arms hosts POSITRONIK and Modern Alarms; the New Oxford features Bo Weavil, Luna Marada and Soul Saboteur, and the Sacred Trinity Church comes in with a bang, courtesy of AAAK and Big Unit..

Around Eccles, The White Horse has an indoor and outdoor stage, and starts on Thursday with sets from Incredible Planet, The King's Parade and The Suns; while Wangies has a Metal and Rock night starring the ace sounding Angry Grandad, Not Above Evil, Footprints In The Custard, Searu and Shades of Avalon.

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
