"We're really pleased to announce we've been confirmed for this year's @[99669750051:274:Liverpool Sound City] on Sunday 24th May. Tickets are on sale now from"

Liverpool Sound City have revealed their next wave of artists including The Cribs, Peace and Everything Everything. Joining confirmed headliners The Flaming Lips, Belle & Sebastian and The Vaccines are Fat White Family, Swans, George the Poet and Icelandic post-punk outfit Iceage.

The new additions add weight to a line up already rich in big-hitters with Yorkshire rock & rollers The Cribs once described as the UK’s ‘biggest cult band.’
While the capture of Michael Gira’s Swans is perhaps the greatest coup of all – a band noted for their hardcore following, seminal post-punk music and dedication to noise which has led to fans passing out at concerts due to the colossal volume.
All of which should add an extra dimension to the new Sound City site, situated on the Bramley-Moore Docks on the banks of the River Mersey.
Everything Everything bassist, Jeremy Pritchard, said: “Liverpool has such a sense and conspicuous love of live music so we always feel at home there, we always have a good time and a great party.

“In the early days of the band we always seemed to end up roaring drunk and sleeping on someone’s floor on Smithdown Road – it will be particularly cool to play at the new location on the docks, that kind of post- industrial landscape is always inspiring.”
Other acts announced include Spector, Stormzy, The Bohicas, Honeyblood, Aquilo and a brace of Merseyside front-runners; master-craftsman Bill Ryder-Jones, GIT Award 2015 nominees The Sundowners and balearic guitar-slingers Tea Street Band.
Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi said: “It’s a really big year for Sound City – with the move to our incredible new industrial home at Bramley Moore Docks we promised to create a bill that smashed expectations. We believe we have more than delivered on this promise. Sound City have also revealed they are working alongside STAX Creations, the team tasked with helping transform the Docklands festival site while Liverpool John Moores University have been named the official Cultural Educational Partner.

Sound City music festival runs between ­May 21st-24th with wristbands available here.
