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.
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.
