Music on the Mersey
Liverpool Sound City is a music festival and industry conference in the UK. Taking place over a weekend in the city of Liverpool, the event welcomes global stars, local artists and industry figures alike to play, watch, enjoy and discuss music in all its forms.
The festival has a strong history in providing a platform for future stars, with the likes of The xx, Ed Sheeran, Alt J and even Calvin Harris making appearances early on in their careers.
On top of the great music, the festival also features a huge range of conferences, panels, debates and workshops to explore behind-the-scenes aspects of the music we love.
