The UK twin of the infamous New York festival
Named Best Metropolitan Festival at the UK Festival Awards, Liverpool Sound City is a weekend showcase of some of the best international artists and local talent from a diverse range of genres.
A mixture of music and art, Sound City aims to capture the culture of Liverpool, and in particular its bustling music scene, cementing its status as the cultural core of the UK. The festival has a proud tradition of giving its platform to future stars, with the likes of alt-J, Bastille and Florence and the Machine all having played before they broke.
In addition to its musical lineup, the now popular Sound City+ will be back with keynotes, workshops and more from some of the industry's leading professionals, while the city itself boasts the most theatres and museums outside of London, alongside a thriving nightlife that is perfect for carrying on the party till sunrise.
