The seventh edition of Liverpool Sound City has added more new acts to its line-up for this coming May.

Among those joining the bill are Jon Hopkins, Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., The Hold Steady and one-time Doves frontman Jimi Goodwin.

“It’s our most exciting line-up to date with some incredible names on both the conference and the live side,” Sound City CEO David Pichilingi comments. “We’ve still got a few more killer acts in mind though – watch this space.”

Also performing across Liverpool’s city centre from May 1st-3rd are Drenge, Mixhell, Royal Blood, The Wytches, Fat White Family, Superfood, San Farmin, Lyla Foy and plenty more.

Last month, John Cale and Thurston Moore were announced as keynote speakers for the event, while Alan McGee, PPL Director of Performer Affairs Keith Harris, Farm vocalist Peter Hooton, ATC Management Senior Partner Arwen Hunt, musician and journalist John Robb, author Kevin Sampson and DJ & writer Dave Haslam will also be giving speeches.
