Sound City Announce Bastille, On An On, Temples, Duologue And More For 2nd-4th May 2013

Sound City is thrilled to confirm even more exciting acts for the first festival of the year.  Famed for showcasing the most adventurous acts in the world right now, Sound City is a thrilling three day rock n' roller coaster and the first opportunity to catch the globes most boundary pushing artists in one place before they hit the summer festival circuit.  Last year saw Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J, Jake Bugg and Django Django perform before the bands released critically and commercially acclaimed albums later in the year and previous performances have included early shows from Florence and the Machine, The Maccabees and Ed Sheeran. 

The most exciting prospect in indie for a long time, Bastille, recently entered the UK album chart at number 1 with their debut album, 'Bad Blood' and have been confirmed to appear at Sound City.  Bad Blood is full of triumphantly melancholic anthems, epic sounding instrumentation and lyrics that combine intimate stories and conversation and their clever pop has cast Bastille as leading lights in the current resurgence of guitar music in the UK. 

Sound City is committed to providing a platform for emerging musical talent and new confirmations include the fuzzy guitars and chunky synth riffs of On an On, the psychedelic sounds of Temples, the dance floor friendly beats of local boys Tea Street Band, the effortless marriage of rock and electronica that is Duologue and hotly tipped Liverpool band Loved Ones.  By The Sea, All We Are, Broken Men, Bird, Nadine Carina, Ady Suleiman, Concrete Knives, Sun Glitters, Mutiny On The Bounty, Afternaut and Silent Sleep also join the bill. 

The line-up for this year's Sound City is hugely impressive and will feature very special shows from Noah and the Whale, Dexys and The Walkmen, all of whom will be performing in Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral.  Other acts not to be missed at Sound City include Everything Everything, AlunaGeorge, Melody's Echo Chamber, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, King Krule, Mount Kimbie, Thee Oh Sees, Drenge and Oneohtrix Point Never as the globes most pioneering musical adventurers descend on Liverpool for the first festival of the year. 

Sound City is a snapshot of everything that is vital in music right now.
