Organisers have also confirmed that an annual student music awards event staged by music education body Access To Music will take place as part of this year’s LSC, while a Sound City Expo will “provide access for both consumers and music/digital professionals to the people, tools and services they will need as we move ever onwards in the digital age”.

Commenting on this year’s initial line-up announcements, Sound City boss Dave Pichilingi told CMU: “We’re thrilled to announce the first wave of bands that’ll make up the line-up for Liverpool Sound City 2012 – an eclectic mix of genres that makes our festival such an interesting, innovative, must-see event. We’re taking Sound City to whole new level this year by bringing in Access To Music and co-hosting the UK Music Student Awards, which shows our commitment to the new breed of musicians and those who work in the music industry, as well as being a great excuse for a party”.

This year’s Sound City runs from 17-19 May. More at As previously reported, the team behind Sound City are also staging an event in New York in March, more information about which is given here.
