The sun was out down the docks on the May Bank Holiday weekend for Liverpool Sound City 2016
See all the pictures from this year’s Liverpool Sound City which took place on May 28-29. Eight stages, including one aboard a Tall Ship, were set up in Liverpool’s Bramley-Moore dock. From The Coral to Circa Waves, Liverpool’s finest were out in force this weekend’s festival which also boasted banging sets from Young Fathers, Dilly Dally and The Big Moon and lots more.
Liverpool lads Circa Waves put on a brilliant show as the sun went down on Bramley-Moore Dock.
Young Fathers played an intense and moody set on the North Stage. Definitely one of the highlights of the festival.
Catfish and the Bottlemen really know how to work a crowd. Liverpool’s under 20s were out in force to jump and sing along to hits from ‘The Balcony’ and ‘The Ride’, which was released just a day before their show.
It was the band’s first ever headline slot and they every bit deserved it. Read the full review of Catfish’s performance.
Dilly Dally brought their brand of Canadian punk to The North Stage. A Drake cover featured among songs from their debut album ‘Sore’.
The best thing about watching The Big Moon, apart from their brilliantly catchy style of jaunty indie, is the amount of fun they have on stage. It’s hard not to smile when the band are beaming back at you. Nice one.
Pete Doherty headlined Saturday night alongside The Coral on the main stage and scooped up a much bigger crowd when power outages interrupted James Skelly and his gang’s set. ‘You’re My Waterloo’ prompted a mass singalong. Other standout songs were ‘Fuck Forever’ and ‘The Whole World Is Our Playground’.
Everyone was pumped to see psychadelic scallies, The Coral, headline their home city on Saturday night. The band rattled through a lot of material from new album, ‘Distance Inbetween’ to an impressively-trippy light show. Then, after a short break while the power was sorted out, returned with early hits including ‘Simon Diamond’, ‘Pass It On’ and ‘Dreaming Of You’. What a way to top off a brilliant weekend.
