Just last month, a huge chunk of artists were added to Liverpool Sound City, Merseyside’s premier live music summer extravaganza. The festival’s 10th birthday celebration is already shaping up to be quite the weekend, with headliners The Human League, Metronomy and The Kooks playing alongside The Velvet Underground & Nico‘s only European performance of the year. That’s not to mention the host of new and emerging artists all playing below them.
Today, we’ve got a whole bunch of new artists added!
Joining Metronomy on the Saturday are two of our Tips list artists; Tips For 2016‘s Vant and Tips for 2017‘s Declan McKenna are both now part of the bill. They join Pumarosa, The Magic Gang, The Japanese House and many more. The following day, The Cribs join the bill as “Very Special Guests” of headliners The Kooks. The Amazons have also been added.
Sound City have also added an Emerging Talent Showcase to this year’s event, with artists including Catholic Action, Colonel Mustard & the Dijon Five and Violet Youth amongst many others. Two “In conversation with…” guest talks will be taking place as well, with Tim Burgess of The Charlatans and John Cale of The Velvet Underground.
