As Sound City returns to its roots this coming May, the festival has revealed it’s first wave of acts due to play Liverpool’s top festival.
After three memorable years at Clarence Docks, including a birthday to remember, Sound City is returning to the city centre. Organisers have relocated Sound City to the Baltic Triangle, with venues across the area to host some of the next big names in music.
When announced back in September, chief operator Becky Ayres said; “We now feel it is time for us to come back to the city centre and embark on the next stage of our journey,” she said. “2018 will all be about re-establishing new links and a new feel. This will also lead us into the hugely ambitious plans that we have for 2019, which will be revealed over the coming months.”
With early bird tickets already sold out, Sound City revealed it’s first wave of artists set to take over Liverpool this May Bank Holiday Weekend. The likes of Peace, The Slow Readers Club, Baxter Dury and Jaws who play a sold out show at The Magnet tonight, are all booked to play at the 11th instalment of the festival.
The festival has seen acts such as Ed Sheeran, Metronomy, Catfish and the Bottlemen and The 1975 all perform over the years.
Still taking place in May, the festival has been moved forward to the first Bank Holiday Weekend, running from May 5th to the 6th. General sale tickets went on sale this morning via Sound City’s website, starting from £55.
