‘An incredible event, really. Amazingly well organised - great bands - great people - clear time schedule that was always bang on time too. One of the smoothest and stress free conferences I’ve ever been to - thanks for letting me be involved!’

Rich Thane, The Line Of Best Fit


'Packed with as much variety as Ringo Starr's postbox, albeit with quality, LSC reinforced Liverpool as a musical hotspot.'

Alex Yau, Drowned in Sound


'Liverpool has always been a city of sound, so it's great to see an event that opens up this buzzing music community to an outside audience. Great bands, great venues and great vibes - or, as they say in these parts, 'boss'!'

Rob Webb, NME


'Sound City was great again this year - excellent networking as always and some good new bands on the circuit.'

Sybil Bell, Clash


'Liverpool Sound City has established itself at the forefront of the UK indie music festival circuit… LSC is an adventurous voyage of discovery and offers the unique opportunity to experience the delights of a wonderful city.'

Elena Goodison, Independent


'Sound City just gets better and better. I’ve been to every one and after I wonder how it can be better next year; low and behold they manage to do it! This year was the best yet, such a good line up and locations! Can't wait till next year!'

Conor McDonnal, The Fly
