- Sound City returns to Liverpool Bank Holiday 5th and 6th May, 2018

- The festival will take place across the city’s Baltic Triangle and Cains Brewery.
Sound City is returning to Liverpool next year. As part of one of the leading European Metropolitan cities it will be its 11th year in the city. The whole point is to focus on emerging talent but also witnessing iconic bands in quite intimate venues.
The first announcement is a corker with Peace, Slow Readers Club and many more being announced. A real mix of sounds from indie rock of Peace to the African and Electronic elements of Ibibio Sound Machine, Jaws with their feel good indie pop and Idles with their brutal punk.
Becky Ayres, Sound City’s COO, explains: “We are all immensely proud and happy to reveal our first artists for 2018. We wanted to lay down a marker for what everyone can expect from our festival’s return to its roots, and we hope that the range and dynamism of these opening ten names reflects where we are taking Sound City for next year and far beyond. Seeing these guys performing up close and personal across a wide spectrum of locations is going to be really special. And of course, there is plenty more to come too as we enter the new year – this is just the beginning!
