The Salford Music Festival returns to the city for two nights, Friday 28th and Saturday 29th September, at Walk The Plank's Cobden Works on Cobden Street, the first public event to be held at the group's new state of the art HQ.

The first night sees Wulfman Fury headline, with Lester Verde, Factory Acts, James Holt and Berlin's Teckel All Stars, plus special guest DJs and more bands to be confirmed.

The second night features Blaney, Ren Harvieu, Garsoons, Bobbie Peru, Four Candles, Jess Kemp and probably more acts...

"I'll squeeze in as many as I can, I always do" says Ed Blaney, SMF founder and front man of Blaney "This year it's a celebration of the last seven years, in a great place and it's a great line-up, a good mixed bag.

"It's very punk in the way it's done and it's going to be great" he adds "It's in the heart of Salford and, even though it's small this year, it takes a lot because we want to get it right and make sure everyone has a good time; that's what it's all about.

"It's one venue, two nights, low beer prices and it's £6 per night just to cover costs" he explains "It's a gathering for anyone. There's also going to be a small but fitting tribute to the late Mark E Smith who, indeed, was a champion of the Salford Music Festival and everything it stood for...new music in Salford."

The Salford Music Festival has a reputation for discovering and promoting new talent from the city and beyond. It's should be one hell of a two-night stand...
