Sound City Festival announced its main wave of artists for this year’s 12th edition event following 2018’s spectacular sold out weekend. Sound City Festival takes place across Baltic Triangle, and Liverpool on Friday 3rd – Sunday 5th May 2019.
As the UK’s leading independent festival for emerging talent, it is a definitive zeitgeist of sounds, styles and cerebral sessions. There’s a heady mix of amazing music from across the world mixed with a world-class conference, Sound City+, and a vibrant range of wider arts to be edified by and immersed in.
Taking place in a range of venues across the Baltic Triangle, Sound City is now back to its roots as a multi-environment weekend odyssey of discovery. Some of the most inspiring new artists and performers from across the world and closer to home will descend on the city, to revered headliners who set the agenda as some of the most illuminating names of their generation.
Leading the announcement are Shame, Blaenavon, and Confidence Man who are joining the already announced headliners Loyle Carner, Mabel and The Magic Gang. Also joining the bill are Tea Street Band, King No–One, Kara Marni, international artists Husky Loops, Giant Rooks, 52 Hertz Whale, and many, many more.
The festival weekend will start with the Sound City+ conference on Friday featuring a full day of illuminating, engaging and inspiring keynote speeches, interviews, round-table debates, workshops, business meetings and much more at Liverpool’s historic Cunard Building.

I'm a photojournalist who is passionate about music. I love the adrenaline of shooting live concerts. Photography has given me the opportunity to photograph some of today's most legendary bands, and entertainers. When I'm not photographing music you can find me on the runway shooting New York and Philadelphia Fashion Week.
