Sound City 2021: Everything you need to know as the festival returns to the city


Sound City returns to Liverpool this weekend with some huge names playing alongside new bands and artists.

Red Rum Club, beabadoobee, Jamie Webster and Rejjie Snow headline the music festival which will be staged across different venues in the Baltic Triangle.

We’ve been waiting for this and it’s finally here – so here’s everything you need to know:

What’s Sound City?

Sound City is one of Liverpool’s favourite music events because it captures the vibrancy of the city with an unforgettable three-day festival that sees established names perform alongside local, national and international talent.

It’s one where you can spot the giants of tomorrow – Sound City was the first to host names like Ed Sheeran, Florence and the Machine, Stormzy, Paloma Faith, The 1975, Years & Years, and more.

It’s got a great pedigree – but then producing and promoting the best music is what the city is known for!

Where is it?

This year the festival will return to the Baltic Triangle at a range of venues, including Grand Central Hall, Arts Club, Leaf, Jimmy’s, EBGBS, Jacaranda, The Kazimier Stockroom and The Shipping Forecast. (Wristbands can be collected at the Bombed Out Church).

When is it?

Friday, October 1 to Sunday, October 3.
