Crowned ‘Best metropolitan festival’ at the UK Festival Awards, Liverpool Sound City is an unrivalled 2-day festival of incredible live music and arts, capturing the city of Liverpool and reinforcing it as the cultural core of the UK.

One of the first music festivals of the year, Sound City sets the standard for all music festivals that follow, by offering music lovers the very best breakthrough acts and major names before anyone else. Headline acts this year include the below and many, many more.

The partnership between Second Screen and Sound City has produced an app that allows users to create their own Sound City festival experience, allowing fans to customise their very own line up, view the festival site map, purchase tickets and merchandise as well as receive exclusive content only available via the Sound City App.

SecondScreen – established by Niall Green – is based on creating local-networks for specific artists and events allowing users to share content that is relevant and timely, offering instant access to VIP backstage content and behind the scenes footage to fans.

Speaking of the app, Niall Green says: “I am really excited to be working with Sound City, music is at the heart of Liverpool and so we believe locals and festival-goers alike will be extremely excited to be able to engage with their favourite acts as well as one another.”

He added: “As social media became more prevalent and fans were uploading content to various channels I felt there was a step being missed, a gap where we could create a product that was immediate and intimate for music fans and the artists they love.”

SecondScreen has also launched apps for singer Anastacia’s ‘Ultimate Collection’ tour and for Capital FM’s Fusion festival, as well as being set to launch Isle Of Wight Festival App and Indigo Sessions App in the next month.

There will be more updates and exciting announcements coming over the next few months so keep an eye out for more info coming soon!
