Sounds From the Other City: Call for Volunteers!

On Sunday May 3rd Sounds From the Other City returns to the streets of Salford, bringing with it its own recognisably distinct line up of great music, exciting live art and community spirit. This much loved independent music and arts festival simply wouldn’t happen without the wonderful collective of volunteers who contribute each year. So this bank holiday get involved!

We are going to need all hands on deck at the event itself and there will be a few shifts beforehand to help us get the festival ready and get the word out.

We would appreciate your assistance with the following roles:

– Promotional Team – visiting venues and gigs across Manchester helping to spread the word before the festival kicks off
– Box office
– Venue Supervisors
– Artist Liaison
– Bar staff
– Technical Assistants
– Art Director Assistants
– Social Media Assistant

In return we can offer

– Food and drink on the day
– A SFTOC T-shirt
– Entry to the festival outside of volunteering times (obviously)
And, of course, our eternal gratitude


An induction day is planned for the evening of Wednesday 15th April, 7pm where the SFTOC team can give some insider information on the festival’s line up and we can get to know your interests and motivations for volunteering. (Venue, Islington Mill)

If you would like to help us out in any shape or manner, please drop Charlie Booth our Volunteer Coordinator an email at
