This May Bank Holiday, Sound City returns to the city of Liverpool with an eclectic, indie lineup set to light up the North West. The festival is very much going back to its roots for its 11th year in a vibrant celebration of music and arts from around the world and much closer to home.
During this odyssey of discovery across the weekend, over 250 of the most hotly-tipped new bands and headliners will perform to thrilling effect, taking in wild shows, raucous label parties and special global guests on the festival’s pulsating international stages. And for the first time Sound City will introduce the new wave of grime and urban stars too, mixing it up in an eclectic range of sounds and styles which includes electronica, indie, psych, rock, pop and much more.
Sound City is incredibly proud to now reveal the headline day splits and 100 of the artists joining them this spring. Saturday’s headliners, the DMA’s have reinvented Britpop uniquely filtered through their Aussie origins, whilst guitar-electro poppers Slow Readers Club segue from their insanely catchy upbeat indie to angry, introspective downbeat ballads.
Over to the Sunday, and Sound City provides more scintillating talent to savour. Alt-psych rockers Peace have been compared to The Maccabees and Vampire Weekend, whilst surf-loving Sunset Sons channel the pop-Americana of Tom Petty, the rock heft of Kings of Leon and dreamy beach alt-rock.
Keep an eye out in the coming weeks and months for our individual picks for the festival!!
