Liverpool Sound City unveils The Vaccines as Third Headliner…

Sound City – The UK’s biggest city festival have announced their Friday night closing act and first wave of the full bill…

Indie rock darlings The Vaccines have been named as the third and final headliner for this year’s Sound City promising an epic finale to the opening day of this year’s festival.

Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi commented “We promised a massive and credible line-up this year and we delivered. The Vaccines, The Flaming Lips and Belle & Sebastian will play to an audience of thousands in one of the coolest cities in the world on the banks of the River Mersey in the unique setting of our brand new Docklands home. It does not get much better than that”

Sound City have also announced the first wave of acts on the rest of the bill including big names such as drum and bass pioneer Roni Size, Canadian hardcore punks Fucked Up, Sean Lennon’s The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, former Supergrass front man Gaz Coombes, leftfield singer/songwriter Jane Weaver and Kiwi Psyc-rock outfit Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

After inspiring crowds as a keynote speaker at Sound City 2014 sonic legend Thurston Moore returns with The Thurston Moore Band and a live set at this year’s festival.

The first wave bill so far includes:

The Vaccines / The Flaming Lips / Belle & Sebastian
Roni Size Reprazent • The Thurston Moore Band • Gaz Coombes

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
