Sound City returns to Liverpool in May showcasing the best in emerging and acclaimed talent from across the globe.

Having previously announced acts such as The Walkmen, Reverend and the Makers, Toy and more, the festival today unveils a further plethora of exceptional musical talent.

Dexys are the quintessential English band who released 'One Day I'm Going To Soar', their fourth studio album, in 2012. Enter Shikari are one of the biggest and best rock acts in the country.

Mount Kimbie have developed a truly unique sound where experimental rhythms play on the fringes of dubstep, wonky and hip hop and ooze with emotion. London based duo, AlunaGeorge are the name on everyone's lips in 2013.

King Krule is South East London's rough jewel.

Darkstar's music is for the early hours after a devastating night before and their much anticipated new album, 'News From Nowhere' is due on Warp Records in February and local Liverpool band, Outfit are set to be huge in 2013 and their synth tinged guitar pop has seen them described as a 'Chillwave New Order' by the Guardian.

Sound City last year provided a first chance for new music lovers to see acts such as Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J, Jake Bugg and Django Django before the bands released critically and commercially acclaimed albums later in the year and this year's batch of fresh faced young talent includes Solely, Theme Park, Amateur Best, Marmozets, Hacktivist, Mind Enterprises, Dan Croll and Brolin as well as a showcase from the much celebrated label, Double Denim Records.

Acclaimed for its bold and innovative programming and forward thinking conference, Liverpool Sound City is focused on the future, intent on bringing the best new music, film, art and more from all over the world to Liverpool.
