Becky Ayres, Sound City’s COO, said: “We are all very happy to be bringing Sound City back to its roots and hosting 2018’s weekend in May in the Baltic Triangle. It’s the perfect place to really capture the magic of what Sound City was always built upon, and what we are bringing back – taking in lots of inspiring and wild shows, all within minutes’ walk from each other, with a vast range of live artists, DJs, label heads, creatives, industry icons, producers, performers and more. We are working with what we know are some of Liverpool’s finest venues so everyone has a plenty of choice over the weekend, from cavernous spaces to truly intimate hideaways, and are currently putting together a suitable eclectic and forward-thinking lineup which mirrors the Baltic Triangle’s spirit. We are bringing back the spirit of discovery to Sound City, and can’t wait to release our first wave of names soon.”
