Sound City have unveiled the first round of artists for the 2019 edition of the festival. UK hip hop sensation LOYLE CARNER heads up a mouth-watering list of names that will be taking over the Baltic Triangle from 3rd-5th May 2019.
Local hero LOUIS BERRY as well as UK RnB star MABEL, and RYAN MCMULLAN also grace the sparkling line-up. Next years festival will be the second year Sound City return to their roots in the city centre with last years event a sold out success.
Elsewhere on the 20 artists announced, there is stellar local representation in the form of SPQR, TRACKY and SPINN. OUR GIRL, ALLIGATOR and DOT also join the party.
Loyle Carner has recently returned to the fray after a quiet year with single Ottolengui and fans will be hoping this announcement signals a new album is in the pipeline to follow up the Mercury-nominated Yesterday’s Gone.
Louis Berry has been building a fervent fanbase in the North West and further afield ever since dropping debut single Rebel back in 2015. His headline Sound City set is bound to be a festival highlight come the May bank holiday weekend.
