Organisers of Liverpool Sound City have announced some additions to both its conference and festival line-ups (the latter you’ll find outlined in today’s FLUU).

Leading the way conference wise is music industry legend Andrew Loog Oldham, the producer, manager and publicity man probably best known for his work with the Rolling Stones in the early days of their career, who will be keynoting.

Meanwhile another session will focus on the very interesting career to date of Enter Shikari, who are also playing LSC this year. The band’s manager Ian Johnsen, agent Adam Saunders and distributor Peter Thompson, plus Mark Meharry of MusicGlue, which powers the band’s D2C operations, will all contribute.

These two events join a conference programme that already includes sessions involving Tracey Thorn and The Wombats. This year’s LSC takes place from 2-4 May – more via this LSC link.

Loog Oldham will also speak at LSC’s sister event in New York – New York Sound City (obviously) – which this year takes place on 11 Mar.
