Sounds of the City, formally known as Summer in the City, is a series of summer concerts held in Manchester, located in the city centre’s Castlefield Bowl.
Originally billed as a two-day event in July 2014, the event attracted some big name headliners, with the first night of proceedings was hosted by legendary alt-rockers Pixies, with support from fresh-faced Brighton band Royal Blood. Meanwhile James, local Manchester heroes, took to the stage for the second evening following a set from fellow hometown heroes Starsailor.
Since, the event has seen performances from the likes of Paolo Nutini, The Charlatans, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, and Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, Guy Garvey, James Bay, Stereophonics, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Richard Ashcroft, Hacienda Classical, Levellers and The Waterboys, James and Blossoms.
Shed Seven, Levellers, Rag'n'Bone Man and Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott are among the acts announced for Manchester's Sounds Of The City series next summer. Catch the event by checking out the dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.
