Voted the UK’s best metropolitan festival and best festival emerging talent at the UK Festival Awards, Sound City is a 2-day extravaganza of incredible live music and arts, attended by 20,000 music lovers over 2 days with a 1-day music and digital industry conference running tandem to the event.
Established in 2007 Sound City has grown over the past 10 years into one of the most cultural and important events on the music calendar. The festival has earned an outstanding reputation for its inventive use of a wide variety of spaces over the use - from cavernous warehouses through to setting up a stage on the banks of the Mersey, and this is set to continue next spring.
