Sounds from the Other City means a lot of different things to different people. Some cherish the arts, others love finding new music, while some simply enjoy taking a trip out to Salford’s Chapel Street for a day in that fabled Other City. However, there’s one thing that brings us all together in advance of the day: we just want to know what we’re going to be eating and drinking on the day mate. Fret no more – here’s the smorgasbord of sumptuous offerings to sample at this year’s sunny Sounds.
