Liverpool Sound City announce more acts with The Cribs, Vant and others

Multi award-winning festival Sound City in Liverpool has added The Cribs, The Amazons, Vant and Declan McKenna to their bill.

Celebrating 15 years at the most credible edge of lo-fi indie rock, very special guests The Cribs have always more then represented when it comes to playing live and their set at this year’s Sound City is sure to be a highlight. Joining them will be Reading four-piece The Amazons, who burst onto the new music scene last year with a reputation for explosive live shows.

Also on the bill are indie rockers Vant – well known for their garage/punk leanings, political opinions and blistering live performances. With their debut album Dumb Blood hot off the press just last week and winning critical acclaim from all quarters, there isn’t a better time to be catching them live as they are headed for rock royalty. And Declan McKenna’s career has soared with a string of hit singles and his first LP due to drop this May – just in time for his Sound City performance.

After successful shows in Korea with Sound City, Glasgow’s Colonel Mustard and the Dijon Five are back to entertain the crowds and they are joined by a plethora of top-notch acts from Merseyside and Greater Manchester including Queen Zee & The Sasstones. Appearing on the Edge Hill label showcase are Shrinking Minds, Oranj Son and Ali Horn, while the BIMM showcase welcomes Fur, Tom Dunne, AE Mak, Crimsons and Chay Snowden. Also featured is the now infamous Korean showcase with Ssing Ssing, Wasted Johnny’s, Diealright and Swiimers.

Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi said of the festival, “Our 10-year spectacular is shaping up to be something very special indeed. And we’ve not finished yet – we still have more artists, more music and lots more still to come. Stay tuned for what is going to be our biggest year yet.”
