After another successful and record breaking year for Sound City based in Liverpool, it is already time to start thinking about 2015’s outing of the festival. The weekend long event that sees not only performances from the best acts around whether big name acts or emerging talent from the local area and further afield but there is also the conferences which are a must for any budding musician, music industry wannabe or just anyone with a passion for music. It’s a great concept and one I will continue to support because of that, I’ve yet to experience the festival myself but I’m hoping to make 2015 the year to change that.
Onto the big news of the moment though and band applications from next year’s Sound City are now open! Over the years, acts such as Bastille, Dan Croll, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Jake Bugg and many many more have had their careers kickstarted by playing the festival and this year it could be the turn of you or your band. So what exactly are you waiting for get applying now!
Need some more persuading then let Alex Simmonds, Marketing and Ticketing Manager, sway you; ““Emerging talent has always been a massive priority to us and we’ve helped launch the careers of some of the biggest names on the UK scene. The north west has always been a hotbed of talent… so as a northern festival we are perfectly placed to tap into that incredibly rich vein.”
Over 350 acts took to the stage over the course of 2014’s festival and this year’s festival is set to be bigger and better with huge headliners, globally renowned speakers and massive surprises set to be announced for this year’s outing, then just why exactly would you not want to be a part of that!
The festival will take place over the weekend of 21st to 24th May next year. Applications are open to UK and international artists with artists from all over the world and from a multitude of genres being invited to the festival to play every year. Applications for 2015’s festival will close on 16th February 2015 but why wait until then, get your applications in now by visiting Sound City’s website and clicking on the ‘Apply to play Liverpool Sound City 2015’ button.
