Sounds of the City is set to take over Castlefield Bowl this month with a week full of headline shows. The popular gig series has established itself as a staple part of the Manchester music scene since 2013 featuring some of the most acclaimed live artists taking to the stage. 2021’s line-up is sure to live up to the hype with performances from Dermot Kennedy, Kaiser Chiefs and Razorlight, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, The Streets, Haçienda Classiçal and Snow Patrol; with special guests just announced!

Next up on Wednesday 22 is one of the most successful British guitar bands of the millennium – Kaiser Chiefs. The Leeds legends will be joined by very special guests, indie-rock elite Razorlight and local talent PINS.
