2.00PM

£25 advance

Band on the Wall returns to Sounds from the Other City for 2019, and we’re bring some of our favourite new artists to their stage.

BARNEY ARTIST
Barney Artist the 26-year-old east Londoner from Forest Gate who fuses 90s era boom bap hip-hop with jazz for a refreshing sound harkening back to legends such as A Tribe Called Quest and The Roots, and taking influence from prolific UK artists including Kano and Ghostpoet.

YAMA WARASHI
Yama Warashi is formed by Bristol-based Japanese artist Yoshino Shigihara with eclectic band members. Her music has a dreamy evocative sound with a shadow of moon cake, inspired by Japanese folk dance music, Bon Odori(盆踊り), free jazz and African music with a slice of electric psychedelia. Yoshino plays keyboard, percussions and sings songs in her mother tongue about mycelium, nuclear power staion and broken O.

Yama Warashi (山童) means a small child-like spirit which lives in the mountains.

SFTOC IS A FESTIVAL OF MUSIC AND ART, A DAY OF DISCOVERY, A COMMUNITY FESTIVAL IN ITS TRUEST FORM, BRINGING MANCHESTER AND MOST IMPORTANTLY SALFORD TOGETHER IN CREATING SOMETHING DOWNRIGHT MAGICAL AND UNIQUE TO BE ENJOYED BY EVERYONE – WHETHER YOU ARE ON STAGE, BEHIND THE SCENES OR SOAKING IT ALL IN FROM VENUE TO VENUE WITH A BEER IN YOUR HAND.
