After announcing a major move to a new docklands location and Belle and Sebastian as their first headline act in 2015, Liverpool Sound City has revealed The Flaming Lips as the second headliner.
Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne said: “We are lucky to have a place associated with our identity. We hail from Oklahoma City and even though I’ve lived there my whole life and the band has always been from there, we are probably more influenced by the city of Liverpool because of the Beatles and our curiosity about their life”.
Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi added: “We’ve moved to an incredible new location and we are delivering on our promise to showcase the biggest and best bands in the world. We are delighted to have The Flaming Lips for 2015, a band we have wanted on the bill since our first year and a band with a massive connection with the city. We couldn’t have booked a better act to play at the beginning of our next chapter, it’s going to be an amazing spectacle right on the banks of the Mersey. Unmissable.”
The event takes place from May 21st-24th next year, find out more here.
