Liverpool Sound City festival is giving emerging talent the chance to perform at the festival as well as the chance to open Jools Holland’s Manchester show.
Last year, 41,500 music fans visited venues across the city to watch more than 360 artists in three days, while 3,500 delegates attended the music, media and technology conference.
The seventh Liverpool Sound City – taking place from 1-3 May 2014 – has a hard act to follow, with last year’s event including performances from the likes of Noah and the Whale, and The Walkmen (pictured), while the conference had speakers like Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham and Simon Moran, founder and CEO of SJM Concerts.
Alex Simmonds, marketing and ticketing manager, said he was excited about plans for the 2014 festival.
“Last year, there was fantastic response to our open band application process and we’re sure it will be even better this year,” said Simmonds. “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.”
Applications are invited from around the world (performers from over 18 countries took part in the festival in 2013) and from all genres. Applications close 31 January 2014.
