Sounds From The Other City

Sounds From The Other City 2018

It was the biggest, hottest and – according to 81% of our audience (yes, we even did an evaluation!) – ‘best’ festival yet.

On an unusually tropical Bank Holiday Sunday our Artistic Directors Stina Puotinen & David Bailey welcomed us into the weird and wonderful world of SoundsTown in a festival theme that encapsulated the true Sounds spirit: including a chaotic dog show, disco seances, a school of painting and decorating and a hot dog eating competition, not to mention 152 acts across 30 stages and afterparty venues.

It were well wild.
