While everyone enjoys the bands and all the art at Sounds from the Other City, the number one question we get asked (aside from set-times) is – what are we going to be able to eat this year? With ONE WEEK to go until Sounds (it really is a week today!), we’re proud to give you an overview of the food and drink options at our Quindecennial. Please be aware that CASH IS PREFERABLE due to a fairly poor wi-fi signal at our base of Regents Trading Estate making card payments difficult – but we’re sure that you’ll have a great time stuffing your faces regardless.
This year’s menu will be 50% vegetarian & vegan, reflecting the feedback we’ve had from festival-goers in the past – and we’re sure there will be something for you, regardless of your palette.
If you’re planning on coming to SFTOC this year, and haven’t got a ticket yet – well, we’ve got around 100 left, and they’re going to go fast. Get yours here: https://www.skiddle.com/festivals/sounds-from-the-other-city/
The best pizza makers in the city. Fresh sourdough from the oven, all day long.
Honest Crust’s wood-burning pizza ovens are a fixture in the iconic Altrincham Market House and at its Manchester NQ offshoot, the Mackie Mayor. Their sourdough dough is fermented for a minimum of 36 hours. The only ingredients are flour, water and salt. Each pizza is stretched by hand and blasted at 450c for less than 90 seconds in the oven. Ingredients for the toppings are scrupulously sourced, too. Our favourite pizza created by Crust’s Richard Carver is Atomica! with its simple topping of spicy ‘nduja sausage, tomato and mozzarella.

Quality freshly-made hotdogs from Nick Prince – also provided the goods for our hotdog eating competition in 2018, could we see the same again this time out? (We will)
They sell handmade frankfurters fashioned in Salford with free range pork, seasoned with paprika, mustard and garlic. Made with traditional natural lamb casings and smoked over English fruit woods in a method unique in the hot dog industry.

Returning to SFTOC for a third year, Magic Rock will keep you watered all day long with Lagers, IPAs, and even a Salty Gose.
Inspired by local brewing traditions and the vibrant US craft beer scene, Magic Rock Brewing is the culmination of a lifelong passion for beer. Richard Burhouse (aided by head brewer Stuart Ross) started the brewery in 2011 in an old out-building of the family business (an importer of crystals and natural gifts) in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
