Sounds From The Other City

5 DAYS TIL SFTOC – Announcing the Rogue P Live Lounge sessions

As another last minute addition to the SFTOC line-up, we’re proud to announce that Rogue P/Collective North will be running their own Live Lounge – but with a typical Sounds twist. On the grassy knoll next to Vim(p)to Gardens, they will be setting themselves up in a family size tent and recording a selection of musicians playing on other stages throughout the day – and they’re inviting festival goers to come watch. The full line up has now been announced, featuring:

3 – 3.30: Karl (Mother)
3.30 – 4: THF Drenching & Greta (Locean)
4 – 4.30: Sean Morley, Sam & Tom (comedy)
4.30 – 5: Special guests TBA
5 – 5.30: Danny Saul with special guest TBA
5.30 – 6: Will Varley
6 – 6.30: Chris (Second Shepherds)
6.30 – 7: Lauren Bolger & David Mclean (Water, Locean)
7 – 7.30: Graham Wann (POST, Sexual Objects)
7.30 – 8: Special guests TBA
8 – 8.30: Christeene

For more information on the Live Lounge, see below.

SFTOC Tickets are available priced at £20 from Skiddle here: as well as in person from Piccadilly Records, and booking fee free from North Tea Power, Font Bars Manchester and the Kings Arm.


See SFTOC artists playing live, really close up!

Where? To the left of the remarkable VIMPTO Gardens Sales Office, Salford is a fairly unremarkable mound of grass. There will be a blue tent pitched on top of the mound – the site of The Rogue P Live Lounge Sessions.

vimpto2When? Sunday May 3rd, 3pm – 8pm. Check Sounds from The Other City on social media for details of the 10 half hour sessions as they unfold.

What? A selection of musicians appearing at various venues across SFTOC, will be interviewed prior to an acoustic set in front of a live studio audience in advance of (or after) their main festival appearance. You, the audience, will be comprised of festival ticket holders prepared to form an orderly queue and take turns at taking in a turn. Just turn up!

How? All of this will take place within the cramped confines of a domestic family tent. The jumbo sized commercial music festival Live Lounge concept has been re-imagined and re-scaled specially to fit SFTOC 2015.

Why? For the experience of being able to see performers and the whites of their eyes. Also, session recordings will be edited and archived on to form a new art work called A Song for The Other City

Artists and organisers from Collective North look forward to seeing you there!
