Sounds From The Other City

May 2, 2018

4 DAYS TO GO | Stage Times and Clashfinder

As much as we try to keep all the Sounds content fresh, relevant, and interesting, deep down we know that all you’re really interested in is seeing the stage times. Interviews with bands, previews of stages, exclusive behind the scenes sneak peeks? They pale in comparison to the might of the clashfinder, and all those lovely lovely stage times. So, here we go: who are we to deny the public of what you want for one second more. Now is the time to start mentally planning your day, plotting the way your Sunday will go (before losing track about an hour in, as per blimming usual!). Ah, the japes that we’ll have.

Click here to visit this year’s Clashfinder. Enjoy!

Please note that the wristband exchange this year is located at Carpino Place Showroom, and opens at 2pm. We do expect queueing – so please plan accordingly.

While you’re here, we’ve got a little bit of admin to do. Due to unforeseen circumstances for the band, Boy Azooga’s set on the Heavenly Records stage will be performed solo. The locations of Now Wave’s stage and the SoundsTown Academy of Painting & Decorating have now swapped over, with them each in Unit 4 and Unit 5 Regent Trading Estate respectively – we’ve got a little bit of SoundsTown goss on that coming your way later. Any further announcements regarding changes will be made, as ever, on the website.

Sounds tickets have sold faster than ever before – get yours from here: and also in person from Siop Shop, Common, Font Chorlton & Piccadilly Records. They’re gonna be all gone within the next couple of days – don’t miss out.

With over 130 acts on the bill, audiences are sure to find a new favourite at this established proving ground for new artists. Take a look at our line up page for who is playing, or subscribe to our Spotify playlist to have a listen to many of the artists playing this year’s festival.
