BRIT award winners and Mercury Prize nominees Friendly Fires have just been revealed as headliners of Liverpool Sound City 2020 - their first UK festival announcement of the year.

Returning to the scene after an eight year hiatus, the English indie trio unleashed the critically-acclaimed Inflorescent - an eleven track offering of straight-up disco-pop - in August 2019, with a following EP of remixes from the likes of PBR StreetgangCosmo's Midnight and Bristol-based electronic duo Icarus.

Speaking about the festival coup, Sound City MD Rebecca Ayres said: "Friendly Fires are a band that insist you to throw off your inhibitions, they’re heartfelt and romantic, and a perfect party starter… we're so excited to be bringing them back to Liverpool for the first time in over a decade to lead our riotous global street party."
