Sound City COO, Becky Ayres, said: “This is a huge moment for us as we not only reveal our headline day splits but also the venues we will be hosting our festival across in May. We really feel the spirit of discovery and exploration returning for our 11th year, with a huge range of artists performing in some brilliant locations. We want to capture the magic of the UK’s thriving scene as well as what is happening around the world, and feel this range of 100 artists will really entertain, inspire and thrill everyone”.
