The Flaming Lips to headline Liverpool Sound City
UK’s biggest city festival announces headliner
Following the announcement of a major move to a new dockland location and the unveiling of Belle & Sebastian as its first headliner, Sound City is proud to reveal legendary experimental rock band The Flaming Lips.
Performing in the city for the first time in 15 years, The Flaming Lips appearance at Sound City on Saturday 23 May could almost be likened to a homecoming show given the huge influence Liverpool’s musical heritage – most notably The Beatles – has on the band.
Said lead singer Wayne Coyne: “We are lucky to have a “place” associated with our identity. We hail from Oklahoma City and even though I’ve lived there my whole life, and the band has always been from there, we are probably more influenced by the city of Liverpool because of the Beatles and our curiosity about their life”
Commented Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi: “We’ve moved to an incredible new location and we are delivering on our promise to showcase the biggest and best bands in the world. We are delighted to have The Flaming Lips for 2015, a band we have wanted on the bill since our first year and a band with a massive connection with the city. We couldn’t have booked a better act to play at the beginning of our next chapter, it’s going to be an amazing spectacle right on the banks of the Mersey. Unmissable.”
Sound City will be announcing more acts and a final headliner in the coming weeks.
Sound City music festival runs between 22-24 May. Sound City conference takes place on 21 & 22 May. Wristbands are available to buy now from:
