Sound City is making its hugely anticipated return to the city’s centre, kick-starting the UK’s 2018 festival season into life on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May.
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. Sound City will embrace the spirit of the underground and seek out the next generation of talent whilst showcasing some of the very best bands and performers of their era, set across the many intimate venues and electric spaces of Liverpool’s historic Baltic Triangle. 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.
