Liverpool Sound City is Liverpool’s premier rock and indie music festival, held each May down at the city’s Baltic Triangle – a creative hub of warehouses and quirky venues – which is the perfect backdrop to the festival’s raw lineup.
As every music fan will know, Liverpool has a rich musical history having produced a host of famous rock bands, such as The La’s, Cast, The Zutons, and of course, The Beatles.
Liverpool Sound City carries on the tradition, showcasing a lineup of smaller artists, as well as unsigned talent. The festival has a proud record of putting on alt-J, Florence and the Machine and The xx before anyone else.
And beyond the main event, Sound City also runs a program of conferences with leading industry figures, including labels, promoters, artists, managers and more, who join festival-goers for a series of panels, debates and workshops.
