The Last wave of artists have been announced! Tim Burgess, Charlatans legend joins the bill alongside huge third wave of artists.
Having already announced an astounding line-up for its tenth anniversary edition, the multi-award winning Sound City has today revealed even more incredible live acts and some exciting additions to the arts and culture programme.
Other 10th Anniversary Headliners include HUMAN LEAGUE • JOHN CALE PRESENTS THE VELVET UNDERGROUND 50TH ANNIVERSARY • METRONOMY • THE CRIBS • THE KOOKS
Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess is joined by the band’s guitarist Mark Collins for a special performance at the Tim Peaks Diner on Sunday. As well as treating fans to hits from their huge back catalogue, all of The Charlatans will also be signing copies of the highly anticipated new album Different Days.
The festival launches on Thursday with a celebration of the English avant-garde featuring a trio of some of the most influential British electronic artists of the modern era – The Human League, Art of Noise and A Certain Ratio.
On Friday global music legend John Cale takes the stage with the only European performance of THE VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO album. This will mark the 50th anniversary of one of the most important albums of all time. When announced in October last year this historical stand-alone event sold out in just 2 days. However Sound City have announced there are a limited number of additional tickets to be released. With a host of live collaborators still to be announced this show is going to be one of the most culturally significant happenings of the year.
Said Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi: “For our big tenth birthday we wanted to do something really special, not just to mark to occasion but also to reward all those loyal Sound Citizens who have come with us on every step of this amazing ten-year journey.
“The term legend is way over-used these days but we really do have bona fide music legends on the bill every single day of the festival and we still have lots more to announce. It’s going to be a rollercoaster ride folks. Get yourself strapped in.”
