Following last month’s Sound City announcement of The Coral and Catfish and the Bottlemen as headliners and a partnership with electronic dance music promoters Freeze, Sound City has revealed a brand new format for its renowned music industry conference.
Rebranded as Sound City+, the new-look conference will be artist and industry focused and take place on the day preceding the main festival – Friday 27 May – in the iconic Rum Warehouse at Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel.
Sound City+ promises everything previous Sound City conferences offered and more but as a richer, condensed platform. The content-heavy programme is jam-packed with workshops, 1-2-1 meetings with UK and international record labels, agents, music supervisors and festivals from all over the world, sign-posting sessions and inspirational TED type talks throughout the day.
Conference Director Jo Whitty said: “Our major aim with Sound City+ is to create a hectic, energised environment where attendees can dash through an array of rooms and meet some of the most amazing people from all areas of the international music business. This is definitely not aimed at stalwarts. It is aimed at the new kids on the block, those who want to shake things up and change everything.”
Jo continued: “Sound City+ is a place to meet people, be inspired, have arguments and do some great business”.
Sound City+ will also host an independent label market, featuring the legendary Sire Records, Domino, Heavenly, Bella Union and China’s biggest independent – Modern Sky Entertainment – plus more to be announced shortly.
Delegate tickets and group discounts for Sound City+ are available through official ticket partner Skiddle.
