Sounds From The Other City

May 4, 2013

1 Day to Go: Ready?

It’s everybody’s second most favourite day of the year – Sounds from the Other City eve. We hope that you’ve sat with your family around the warm glow of the Sounds from the Other City website, that you’ve made your intinerary (and checked it twice) and sung merrily along with tracks from the SFTOC 13 Spotify playlist. We hate to say this – especially given the trouble you’ll have getting to sleep tonight through all the excitement – but this year’s festival is pretty much here, and we have some key things for you to remember.


If you’re one of the few people who didn’t buy tickets in advance, we do advise you to get down to Islington Mill early, as there will be a very limited amount available for sale at Islington Mill, where the ticket collection will be open from 2 pm. If you’ve not purchased a ticket yet, we can’t guarantee that they’ll be available all day – in fact, they’ll likely sell out very early on – so don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Please note: there are always queues, which means that if there is anything that you are desperate to see early on (a lot of performances are from 3 onwards) then it would be wise to make sure that your wristband is collected as early as possible.

Also, please be advised that ticket collection will be closing at 10 pm.


There have also been some changes to the line-ups for tomorrow, too

On Hey! Manchester’s stage at Islington Mill, BC Camplight has unfortunately had to pull out, though the majestic BIRD are coming over from Liverpool to take his place.

For the SceneSkype stage, Trojan Horse are unable to perform, though thankfully they’ve managed to hoodwink The Travelling Band in their place.

Unfortunately, Bridget Hayden won’t be playing at SFTOC, which means that Astral Social Club will be playing in her original slot, and a very special set taking over headline duties – we can’t say much, but it is going to be incredible.

For the rest of the line-up and times, you can check once again here


For up to the date information, we’ll be on twitter, facebook and instagram all day – follow us and stay tuned. We’ll see you tomorrow!
