The Salford Music Festival roars into its second day today with another zillion bands playing at venues all over the city.

There's also a Friday Fiddlers After Hours Jam following the poets.

The Salford Arms also has a top bill tonight featuring rock and soul diva Judith Ude, indie-electro combo Go Native, pop anthem purveyors The Marivaux and Liverpool rockers Joe Symes and the Loving Kind.
