Now in its eleventh year, Liverpool Sound City 2018 proudly marks the start of the UK music festival season. Taking place in the city’s creative quarter The Baltic Triangle, the line-up includes DMA’s, Peace, Idles and Superorganism, as well as BIMM Brighton graduates Black Honey.
This year sees even more performance opportunities for our current students with 11 artists from across our colleges. They are Gathering of Strangers, Working Men’s Club, Carl North & The Lonely Hearts, Nish Goyal and Olly Flavell (BIMM Manchester), Fontaines D.C (BIMM Dublin), The Villanovas and Casey Lowry (BIMM London), Temple Keys (BIMM Bristol) and SheBeat (BIMM Birmingham).
Our official showcase is at Red Door Vintage venue on Saturday 5 May 2018 between 5-8 pm. (Stage times below). This year BIMM will also have three buskers perform as part of an acoustic lineup at Unit 51. They are Casey Lowry, Nish Goyal and Oli Flavell (Stage times below)
There’s also plenty of invaluable placements in store for BIMM Manchester’s non-performance students. In the months leading up to the event, festival organisers will be recruiting exemplary individuals to fulfil roles in Production/Event Management and Marketing, as well as a Conference Assistant.
And for those looking to get their hands dirty with more practical roles at the festival, there are plenty of logistics positions up for grabs too, including Stage Manager Assistant, Runner, Artist Liaison Officer, Conference Assistants and Backline Tech Assistants.
Music Journalism students will also be playing a big part in the festival. They have the chance to cover the festival on a press angle, with follow-up blogs, social media posts and artist reviews.
