Liverpool’s Sound City has revealed new names for its conference programme – it’s looking like a good one!

As part of his newly announced ‘In Conversation’ tour, Joe Talbot from the punk band IDLES will go talk on a panel with BBC Radio 6 Music’s Chris Hawkins in a discussion called “for the Reckless and Outspoken”, and Facebook’s Vanessa Bakewell is offering a digital masterclass on ‘how to scale your music marketing across Facebook and Instagram’.

Also announced is Producers Andrew Bushby (Foofighters, Spice Girls) and Steph Marziano (Sam Smith, Kasabian). They will talk in depth about their exciting and versatile music careers. Check out the full conference lineup and poster art below.

We’ve very excited to once again be able to offer the opportunity to some of our student from across the UK, to attend this years conference.
