Belle and Sebastian set to headline 2015's Liverpool Sound City

Liverpool Sound City 2015 will be the 8th event, and Belle and Sebastian are set to headline the newly-expanded weekender.

The Scottish indie-pop act will be accompanied onstage by a full orchestra, presumably performing new material from their forthcoming LP Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance.

Liverpool Sound City will also be moving from its longtime home Wolstenholme Square to Bramley Moore Dock. Speaking about the decision Sound City CEO Dave Pichilingi said:

“Our goal year on year is to evolve, grow, challenge, inspire, surprise and delight. The decision to move to Bramley Moore Dock is based on that ethos and vision. The site is quite literally incredible, at once a blank canvas but at the same time a powerfully evocative backdrop of the real Liverpool, it’s industrial heritage and a once in a lifetime opportunity to breath new life into the sleeping heart of this city. The move is not just prompted by our desire for the new but also as a response to the feedback we have had from our audience. Ultimately we have outgrown our old home. It will be sad to leave working with the people and venues we have worked with over the past few years but we don’t want a situation where people have to queue to watch acts or worse still not get to see them at all. Sound City is based on egalitarianism, just as this city is, and we chose the new site to ensure everyone who comes gets the chance to see and engage with everything.”
