Having already seen Bastille in Liverpool at The O2 Academy earlier this year we will be heading down to The Garage – which will be a ┬ánew stage set up at the Wolstenholme Square Car Park (by Medication) to create a real warehouse feel to proceedings!

Esco, the winner of last years MOBO Unsung Award, has two shows this year at the aforementioned The Garage and at yet another new venue The Liverpool One Dome. A great live performer with great RnB tracks, he’s defiantly one to catch.

Fire Beneath The Sea @ Brooklyn Mixer FRI 3rd.

Savages @ Art Academy FRI 3rd

This all-female post-punk band from London have to be one of the highlights of Sound City for us, with the release of their first album ‘Silence Yourself’ on 7th May it will be a great appetiser to see them at The Art Academy (also located at Wolstenholme Square).
