Liverpool Sound City is thrilled to announce Professor Green as one of their headliners. His debut album, Alive Till Im Dead crashed into the charts last year and went double-Gold, spawning four hit singles, singles with I Need You Tonight, Just Be Good To Green, Monster and 'Jungle' amassing over 500,000 sales. The size of his army of Facebook friends 1.3 million tells it like it is: Professor Green is head and shoulders above any of his peers. His second album is due for release this summer and he will be premiering tracks from it at Liverpool Sound City.
"Liverpool is always a highlight of any tour so I'm delighted to be able to confirm LSC. I can't wait to get back there. Liverpool! Let's have it!" - Professor Green
White Denim, the Texas four piece who blend garage, progressive and psychedelic rock and are hugely lauded for their blistering live sets will perform tracks from their five revered and varied long players.
Also performing are psychedelic electronic innovators, Death In Vegas, playing tracks from their Trans Love Energies album. The record marks a return to their roots in minimal techno, deploying the rudimentary gear behind all the classics of the original Detroit / Chicago era to try and spirit up fresh atmospheres.
Cloud Nothings, Yukon Blonde, Charli XCX, and Fixers showcase the new talent that Sound City is renowned for promoting.
Liverpool Sound City is proud to be hosting the UK Music Student Awards at the Echo Arena on 17th May. Launched by George Martin, the awards are in collaboration with Access To Music and are hosted by BBC Radio 1s Edith Bowman. For 8 years this unique event has celebrated, identified and supported new talent within music education including Ed Sheeran and affirms Access To Musics position as the link between the industry and music education. The awards and Access To Music programme give the stars of tomorrow an amazing opportunity to shine today with recognition directly from the music industry.
Sound City Expo takes its inspiration from the golden age of Expos, where the new, the innovative and the exciting were brought together under one roof to delight and amaze. The event will bring the newest and most forward-thinking exhibitors to the Echo Arena in Liverpool - providing access for both consumers and music/digital professionals to the people, tools and services they will need as we move ever onwards in the digital age.
As a reaction to the traditional, staid music trade-shows that have proliferated the calendar, Sound City Expo will focus on the current and future intersection of music, art, business and technology - giving a real insight into what is possible in the modern age.
Sound City Expo will be fully integrated into both the convention and festival offerings of Liverpool Sound City manifest in live demos, master classes, discussions and more featuring many performers and speakers.
Dave Pichilingi, CEO Sound City comments "We're thrilled to announce the first wave of bands that'll make up the line-up for Liverpool Sound City 2012 - an eclectic mix of genres that makes our festival such an interesting, innovative, must-see event. We're taking Sound City to whole new level this year by bringing in Access To Music and co-hosting the UK Music Student Awards, which shows our commitment to the new breed of musicians and those who work in the music industry, as well as being a great excuse for a party. We're also launching our very own Sound City Expo - an exhibition of what's new and interesting in music and tech for fans, bands and delegates alike."
Liverpool Sound City brings established acts to intimate venues and introduces you to tomorrows headliners today. With hundreds more bands, pop culture initiatives and a conference programme to be unveiled, Liverpool Sound City is the UKs premier cultural happening.
