The UK’s lead­ing inde­pend­ent fest­ival of emer­ging music, arts and dis­cov­ery, Sound City, is back in Liv­er­pool in 2019, fol­low­ing on from this year’s spec­tac­u­lar sold out edi­tion across the Balt­ic Tri­angle.

Embra­cing the wild spir­it of dis­cov­ery, the elec­tric­ally-charged fest­ival is again set to show­case 100s of the very best emer­ging bands, artists and per­formers from across the world and closer to home, as well as gen­re-defin­ing head­liners. Cel­eb­rat­ing its 12th year as one of the UK’s defin­ing city-based fest­ivals, it’s an eclectic mul­ti-ven­ue exper­i­ence with the chance to see many artists, bands and per­formers up close in a series of intim­ate spaces.

Now estab­lished back in the city centre, the fest­ival enters 2019 with two of the UK’s most for­ward-think­ing and dynam­ic head­liners. The fest­ival week­end starts with the Sound City+ con­fer­ence on Fri­day 4th May, fea­tur­ing a full day of illu­min­at­ing, enga­ging and inspir­ing key­note speeches, inter­views, roundtable debates, work­shops, busi­ness meet­ings and much more.

One of Europe’s defin­ing odys­seys, Love Inter­na­tion­al, is back in July 2019 for its 4th sea­son, after selling out months in advance last year. fest

Love Inter­na­tion­al is a sub­lime week-long affair which seam­lessly blends the essence of a hol­i­day and fest­ival into one beati­fic week. Nestled away amid sprawl­ing pine trees, rocky out­crops and crys­tal-clear Adri­at­ic waters in Tis­no, music lov­ers and adven­ture seekers from all over Europe and bey­ond unite for a truly magic­al exper­i­ence under the sun and stars.

The fest­ival encour­ages artists to exper­i­ment and embraces a peer­less array of sounds and styles across a scin­til­lat­ing spec­trum, from dis­co, house and tech­no, through to dub, reg­gae, funk and Balear­ic. Tak­ing in loc­a­tions includ­ing intim­ate beach-side dan­cing, pulsat­ing boat parties, the mes­mer­ic Olive Grove, Garden Stage action, the icon­ic open-air club, Barbarella’s, and the Secret Island Party which brings the whole jour­ney to a glor­i­ous cli­max, it has evolved into a jour­ney unlike any oth­er, fol­low­ing its own uni­fied beat on the Dal­ma­tian coast.

Last sum­mer Noz­stock: The Hid­den Val­ley reached its sold-out 20th anniversary across a spec­tac­u­lar week­end in Here­ford­shire.

Noz­stock is one of the UK’s longest run­ning fest­ivals — fam­ily-run, very much home-made and proudly inde­pend­ent on a beau­ti­ful work­ing farm set upon rolling hills. The Nos­worthy fam­ily con­tin­ue to cur­ate one of the UK’s finest empori­ums of music, arts, food and drink, with a huge focus on keep­ing all kids and fam­il­ies enter­tained in the Little Won­der­land Kids Area.

It’s a glor­i­ously eccent­ric, wildly ima­gin­at­ive and dec­ad­ently off-kil­ter brain-shift with incred­ible detail at every turn, a small fest­ival with a very big heart which con­tin­ues to chart its own path, far away from com­mer­cial­isa­tion and fol­low­ing the flock. Noz­stock is a tran­scend­ent­al exper­i­ence which cre­ates its own sense of unity and escap­ism from the real world for a few pre­cious days.

The last two dec­ades of magic set on Rowden Pad­docks has cre­ated a sub­lime adven­ture for all the ages, and now, enter­ing its 21st sea­son in 2019, Noz­stock once more will enchant, inspire and illu­min­ate all who attend.
