Joining the Merseyside talent such as headliners The Coral, GIT Award 2015 nominees Circa Waves and Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition winners She Drew the Gun, Liverpool’s Feral Love have been announced to collaborate with Lebanese-Canadians Wake Island both at Sound City and at POP Montreal in September.

Meanwhile, Sound City and Modern Sky Entertainment have joined forces to trigger the exit of previous business partners Ingenious.
Modern Sky, founded in 1996 by Chinese businessman Shen Li Hui, is the largest independent record label in China, while also organising music festivals under the banner of Strawberry Festivals.
Shen Li Hui said: “The city of Liverpool is the birthplace of the music that influenced our growing years. We believe Sound City will be a new platform to open the European market up for Chinese music talents.”
