Sounds of the City has recently announced more artists who will appear at the festival this upcoming summer. Among the recent announcement are DMAs, Foals, and The Streets that will perform during the eight-day festival.
One of the most anticipated music festivals in the UK, Sounds of the City has unfolded even more promising line-up. Previously announced as part of the headlining acts were Lewis Capaldi, The Kaiser Chiefs, Hacienda Classical, Paul Abbot and Jackie Heaton and Crowded House.
It was also reported that The Kaiser Chiefs would be supported by Razorlight, while Everything Everything and Battles would also open for Foals. What’s more interesting to see next year is the return of Crowded House to play a gig in Manchester for the first time in ten years.
Sounds of the City is regarded as one of the biggest music festivals in the UK and Manchester’s hallmark. The festival is held in the heart of the city at Castlefield Bowl, with the capacity of 8,000 audience every summer. Last year, there were impressive performances from iconic artists, such as Kylie Minogue, Bloc Party, and Elbow. Next year, Sounds of the City will be situated at the exact location for two separate periods: July 1-4 and July 8-11.
