Liverpool Sound City has revealed the final musicians and bands to play the May festival.
Post-punk outfit The Membranes, Warp Records’ Lonelady and rising lo-fi pop band Gengahr are among the bands joining headliners The Flaming Lips, The Vaccines and Belle and Sebastian.
Also joining the bill is a vast array of rising Liverpool talent including GIT Award nominees Hooton Tennis Club, LIVES, Silent Sleep, Johnny Sands, Ady Suleiman and Sankofa.
The festival has also announced four new stages for their new docklands base – The North Stage, The Cavern Stage, The Kraken Stage and The Record Store with hundreds of up and coming signed and unsigned acts across the four.
Already confirmed for the three-day festival are Fat White Family, Swans, The Cribs, George the Poet and Iceage.
Sound City CEO, Dave Pichilingi, said: “This year’s line-up is the widest it has ever been. We had band and artists applications in the thousands from over 25 different worldwide countries.
“This year will eclipse everything that came before and cement Sound City as one of the most unique festivals in the world.”
Also new this year is Tim Peaks Diner - hosted by Charlatans singer Tim Burgess with exclusive appearances from Taffy and Hot Vestry plus DJ sets from Dave Haslam among others.
Finally, Sound City has joined forces with PledgeMusic and Liverpool-based consultants JUXDIT, to offer three new acts to launch their very own Direct-to-Fan campaign and play at the 2015 Sound City festival.
Sound City music festival runs between May 21-24.
