The Basics

5-6 May 2018
Liverpool, United Kingdom

Liverpool Sound City is a rock and indie music festival in Liverpool, showcasing a lineup of established artists alongside hot new talent in a series of venues across the city's Baltic Triangle. 

A city built upon music, Sound City pays fitting tribute to Liverpool's long history of producing incredible bands such as The Beatles, but also championing smaller artists, giving platform to the likes of The xx, Ed Sheeran and alt-J before anyone else.

Alongside its main event, the festival also has a program of conferences with leading industry figures, including labels, promoters, artists, managers and more, who will impart their knowledge and expertise through a variety of panels, debates and workshops.
