After much deliberation it’s time to announce the winning band who will be performing on the main stage at City Square before this Saturday’s clash against Bolton.

Following our call out for local acts to send us their music, we were inundated with entries from aspiring groups all looking for their big break.

Music and football have always been the most important cultural exports of Manchester and we aim to continue that by showcasing the best up and coming acts before games throughout the season.

We’re delighted to announce that urban outfit Coldside Generals are the first City Sound winners and will be playing before thousands at City Square this Saturday.

Born and raised in Manchester, Coldisde Generals are  Zane, Red and Aitch; a collective of MCs, performers, producers, singers,  graphic designers and engineers. 

Making all material themselves from the beats to the mastering, Coldside are a unique, self efficient urban unit making their mark on any genre they touch..As Dean from the band explains:

It’s a pleasure to be the first winners of the City Sound competition and be the first band in the world to play at City Square.

...Dean, Coldisde Generals...

"City fans can expect tons of energy, jokes and most importantly good music from us. Fans of Kanye West and urban music will really be into it!"

Have a listen to Coldside Generals on their official website before you see them this Saturday!

The next round of City Sound will be announced very soon so keep an eye out if you want to get your band involved.
