Music, Football & Style! Great expectations for Liverpool Sound City 2014


Conference content a brilliant reflection of Liverpool

If you were to play a word association game with someone about what words sum up our great city, you could safely bet that MUSIC – FOOTBALL – STYLE would feature heavily.

The lovely people at Sound City 2014 have taken these things we’re so well known for as the themes for next year’s conference. As well as the usual top class music conference, next year the team has decided to look further into style and football to see what the music industry can learn from these areas and discuss the business behind them.

The conference not only promises to bring you more keynote sessions and more Q&A sessions with big names in the music, football and style industries but we promise to deliver a conference like no one has ever seen before by discussing the relationship between these three areas.
Andrew Loog Oldham (Ex Rolling Stones manager) will be lead curator on the music section and The Anfield Wrap (The UK’s biggest podcast after the Guardian) will be curating the football section.
We have some amazing speakers already locked in for this and we will be updating you with who they are over the coming months…

The UK’s Premier Urban Music Festival Opens For 2014 Band Applications

Can you believe that Sound City is a big seven years old next year? Neither can we! And it’s promising to be the biggest year yet.

sound city 2014In 2013 the festival featured over 1oo new and emerging artists who took to the stage following an open application process. And the hard-working team plans to build on this for 2014.

Sound City’s Alex Simmonds told us

“We’re extremely excited to be planning for Liverpool Sound City 2014 and we’re definitely expecting big things. Last year, there was fantastic response to our open band application process and we’re sure it will be even better this year. We’re looking for a very high level of talent and performance ability, we want something groundbreaking – basically, bands who could be the next big thing.”

In preparation for next year, 2014 applications are now live, in association with Dawsons Music. So if you’re an artist or musician and you’d like to be part of Liverpool Sound City get over to liverpoolsoundcity.co.uk and click on the Apply to Play button for full details on how to apply.

To give you an idea of what to expect, this year’s festival saw 41,500 music fans flock to venues all over the city to watch over 360 artists in just three days, whilst 3,500 delegates attended its leading music, media and technology conference. For 2014, the seventh edition of Liverpool Sound City – taking place from 1 to 3 May – is set to be bigger, better and even more unmissable.

Sound City uniquely combines an internationally renowned music festival, which celebrates new talent alongside the biggest names in the British music scene, with the UK’s leading industry conference – all in the world’s most legendary music city. In 2013, the eclectic line-up included the likes of Noah and the Whale, Alunageorge, The Walkmen, Enter Shikari and hundreds more, whilst the conference hosted key speakers like Dan Smith from Bastille, Michael Murphy from The Wombats, manager of the Rolling Stones Andrew Loog Oldham and Simon Moran, founder and CEO of SJM Concerts.

Let’s start getting excited right now!
