Sound City have been working with POP Montreal for the past two years to showcase Quebec artists at Sound City.

Since Sound City started in 2008, Quebec artists including Tim Hecker, Deadbeat, Folly and the Hunter, Solids, Braids, Le Couleur, Ira Lee, Beat Market, Foxtrott and L.A. Foster have showcased at the festival.   

We are really excited this year to be working on a very special collaboration in partnership with POP Montreal - an annual festival of music and arts which takes place every year in the Quebec capital.

In May, Montreal artists Wake Island and Liverpool act Feral Love collaborated to create new music together which premiered at Sound City festival. 

Due to the success of playing at Liverpool Sound City, the two bands have renamed their project 'Feral Island’. They will perform together again this week at POP Montreal :

  • Feral love 22/09/16 - Venue Mademoiselle, 20:00
  • Feral Island (Collaboration) 23/09/16 - Venue Cagibi, 20:30

Adele Emma’s of Feral Love said: “We've been lucky enough to be selected by Sound City to go to Canada in September to play at POP Montreal Festival. This is part of an exchange and on going collaboration that we're doing with a Montreal based duo called Wake Island. The exchange has involved us performing our collaboration at this years Sound City and then we'll do the same when we go to Montreal in September. So we're massively grateful of the opportunity!”

Rebecca Ayres, COO of Sound City said “The Feral Island collaboration is really exciting as it has brought two amazing bands from two very cool cities, Liverpool and Montreal together to create some outstanding new music. POP Montreal is an ascending festival brand, and we are delighted to work with them to create more opportunities for Quebec and UK artists in the UK and North America."

Sound City and POP Montreal are grateful for the support of British Council Quebec for supporting the collaboration.
