Liverpool Sound City may have slimmed down to a two-day event, but this year’s bill is certainly not short on entertainment and musical surprises. First up, the Libertine’s co-frontman and tabloid papers’ favourite Pete Doherty is revealed to headline The North Stage on Sunday.
Added to the Atlantic Stage is former Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones, Mercury-nominated indie-folkster C Duncan, pop absurdists Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5, upcoming indie daydreamer Kyko, Welsh songwriter The Anchoress, flamboyant French/Arabic rockers Temenik Electric and New Yorker singer/songwriter Norma Jean Martine.
Sound City is also proud to announce the first names appearing on the In Conversation with Radio X stage. Hosted by Radio X’s new music champion and Xposure presenter John Kennedy and DJ, author and interviewer of the cognoscenti Dave Haslam, the In Conversation stage will be illuminated by some of the leading lights in the entertainment world including indie-rockers Circa Waves, mulit-award winning actor, director and musician Paddy Considine, post-electro-punk agitators Sleaford Mods, left wing legend Alexei Sayle, singer, songwriter, poet, muse and fashionista Roisin Murphy and many more to be announced in the coming weeks.
