Previously, the festival has been held at Liverpool’s Clarence Dock but will be returning to the city centre for 2018, and the line up will be spread across different venues in the city.
The festival promises to deliver the latest breakthrough acts and big names worldwide.
Becky Ayres, Liverpool Sound City’s chief operating officer has said “We delivered three hugely ambitious and successful years of Sound City on the north docklands of the city. Sound City was the first to shine a beacon on this neglected area of the city and, by doing so, we’ve even encouraged Everton FC to relocate to our former festival site.”
“We now feel it is time for us to come back to the city centre and embark on the next stage of our journey. 2018 will all be about re-establishing new links and a new feel. This will also lead us into the hugely ambitious plans that we have for 2019, which will be revealed over the coming months.”
Applications for artists who may wish to perform at Liverpool Sound City next May open soon, and there will be more festival information available next week.
Early bird tickets are on sale now.
