Liverpool Sound City organisers have revealed they’re moving sites for their tenth birthday.

Liverpool Sound City is to celebrate its 10th anniversary on May 27-28 2017 with a move to Clarence Dock.

Bands have yet to be revealed for the festival, which last year featured The Coral and Catfish & The Bottlemen, but organisers are promising an increased capacity at Clarence Dock – the historic
19th century terminus for steam ferries from Ireland.

Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi said: “Every year we strive to deliver more and for our tenth birthday we really wanted to push the boat out with bigger acts, more stages, more entertainment, better facilities for our industry conferences for Sound City+ and ultimately a much better experience for everyone.

“We’ve got some big names and big surprises to announce soon. It’s going to be one hell of a party and the new location is perfect for it.

The Sound City team has also expanded into presenting special one-off shows in Liverpool the first being the sell-out 50th anniversary of The Velvet Underground & Nico.

Pichilingi added: “Being able to put on the only show in Europe for the 50th anniversary of one of the most influential and celebrated albums in musical history, The Velvet Underground & Nico, has been an absolute pleasure to organise. We are very excited to do this again in the near future with some huge musical events in Liverpool already in the pipeline.
