With an abundance of musical options across this whirlwind 3 day period, festival goers had little chance to grab their breath before heading on to see the next band

Liverpool Sound City, now in it’s fifth year, offered a combination of various daytime Music/Tech conferences and a plethora of artists and bands of diverse styles playing at a multitude of venues across the city running late into the night and early hours over a 3 day period.

The likes of Mystery Jets, Professor Green, Death In Vegas, Temper Trap, White Denim and Space rocked venues such as the Liverpool Academy or Arts, The Echo Arena and The Kazimier, amongst various others.

With an abundance of musical options across this whirlwind 3 day period, festival goers had little chance to grab their breath before heading on to see the next band. It helped that the venues were so close to each other, meaning one could literally pop from venue to venue, checking out different band after band. There was a good combination of local up and coming bands, to bigger more established UK and International acts. It was nice to see people coming together and building friendships and business contacts over the whole weekend through music. It felt like we were at the centre of something really special, and it felt great. Liverpool Sound City done the city’s name and rich music heritage proud with a festival providing great music, bands, venues and atmosphere.
