2006: Should we do it again, shall we. will we, well we did. Mount Pleasant joined the fold and cooked up the absolute beauty of the poster that you see to the side of you. Sacred Trinity Church and The Mark Addy joined in on the venue action, the former providing the perfect start to the day with a christening as the first action of the festival.
This year saw Blowout on fine form with The Whip providing one of the genuine highlights of the day and a surprise late night set from the long and sadly missed Stazi. Cherry Ghost provided a more mellow surge of interest at the Kings Arms. The infamous Club Brenda party from Islington Mill made its way to the Rovers Return with the predictable carnage ensuing, while next door at the Black Lion the hype pipe blazed all day with appearances from the hotly tipped KBC, Dead Disco and the early Delphic incarnation, Snowfight in the City Centre.
Once again, pictorial evidence was thin on the ground, the now ubiquitous camera phone not be a big thing around these parts, unless you were a snazzy jazzy with a Nokia N90.
THIS YEAR THE SALFORD SIX WERE: RAIN OR SHINE, BLOWOUT, RED DEER CLUB, HIGH VOLTAGE, GOLDEN LAB, CLUB BRENDA
