Salford’s festival of new music returns for the eighth time on bank holiday Sunday, 6 May, with its biggest line-up yet.

For 2012, Manchester promoters like Faktion (who’ve put on Demdike Stare and the Blackest Ever Black label showcase), Now Wave (Sleigh Bells, the XX, Money, Alt-J) and Hey! Manchester (Jens Lekman, Momus, Steve Reich) will be joined by indie tastemakers Drowned in Sound to present a huge array of talent on 14 stages, including Swedish ice princess Molly Nilsson, Kompakt Records’ Walls, Wire magazine favourites Ekoplekz and queer supergroup Covergirl.

Between acts, there’s a host of stuff happening, from performances for one in phone boxes to vignettes by Brooklyn’s cat masked creative Cheryl and up and coming art stars Panoply.

In total, Sounds From The Other City features 80 acts in 14 venues and a four-room after-party at Islington Mill.

Tickets cost £18 are available from, or in person at Piccadilly Records, The Gaslamp and Islington Mill. For more info see
