Liverpool Sound City


Liverpool Sound City is an independent music festival held every spring. It stands out from other music festivals with its forum featuring artist in-conversations and industry workshops, which runs alongside the live music. It’s quite a networking opportunity for those in the biz.

If you don’t like slumming it in a tent, but you do love the cutting edge of new music, then this festival is for you. It’s an urban festival where most of the venues are just a short stagger from each other.

Part of an international network of Sound City metropolitan music festivals, the Liverpool edition is as cool as they come. It showcases established names, embraces new sounds, and encourages undiscovered local talent to apply to play.

Liverpool Sound City has been voted The Best Metropolitan Music Festival'.

Liverpool Sound of the City 2024

This year, Liverpool Sound City is held on Saturday 4 May and Sunday 5 May in various venues including The Jacaranda Club, Spanish Caravan, The Shipping Forecast, Teddy’s, Zanzibar, Arts Club and Heebie Jeebies.

The festival has just won Best Metropolitan Festival at the UK Festival awards and the 2024 line-up shows why. Headliners include Caity Baser and Red Rum Club on the Saturday and The Snuts and Michael Head and The Elastic Band on Sunday with other artists including Antony Szmierek, Seb Lowe, Flowerovlove and Corella.

Don’t forget the Sound City Forum. There’ll be appearances, round-tables, talks, mingling and more with the likes of Sacha Lord, Virgin Music UK, SoundCloud, Tik Tok, TuneCORE, 4AD and Arts Council England.

Day and weekend tickets are available as well as conference-only tickets, and conference and festival packages.
