After six long months the Salford Music Map was finally launched!

In celebration of Salford’s musical heritage, we were commissioned by Salford City Council to create a map highlighting hotspots across the city. Salford has a rich musical history and the Music Map aims to cover all genres across the ages from The Smiths to The Ting Tings, Russell Watson to New Order. The map highlights venues, artists’ birthplaces, concert halls and iconic locations.

If you were tuned into BBC last night in the north west, you might have spotted some of us. The programme, Inside Out, did a feature on the map and sent Nigel Pivaro on the trail of Salford’s musical past. You can watch the program on BBC’s iPlayer.

Pictured with the map at the launch party is Salford’s very own Peter Hook (New Order).
