On Friday global music legend John Cale takes the stage with the only European performance of THE VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO album to celebrate its 50th anniversary. When announced in October last year this historical stand-alone event sold out in just 2 days. However Sound City have announced there are a limited number of additional tickets to be released. With a host of live collaborators still to be announced this show is going to be one of the most culturally significant happenings of the year.
Sunday has The Kooks, with support from White Lies, Local Natives, !!! (Chk Chk Chk), newly reformed Milburn, She Drew The Gun, Cabbage, there'll be no shit from The Sherlocks, plus Liverpool’s very own The Vryll Society, plus others.
Said Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi: "For our big tenth birthday we wanted to do something really special, not just to mark to occasion but also to reward all those loyal Sound Citizens who have come with us on every step of this amazing ten-year journey. The term legend is way over-used these days but we really do have bona fide music legends on the bill every single day of the festival and we still have lots more to announce. It’s going to be a rollercoaster ride folks. Get yourself strapped in."
