Liverpool Sound City is one of the largest international music, digital and film festivals in the UK, welcoming over 360 artists, in over 25 venues in Liverpool's city center, with over 40,000 music fans and over 3000 industry professionals. This years festival will take place on the 1st - 3rd May 2014. This year Albert Hammond Jr of 'The Strokes' and 'Kodaline' join a massive lineup of indie musicians from around the world. Velvet Underground's John Cale and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore will be among the many speakers at the festivals conference.
Asian Chairshot, Dead Buttons, Hellivision and PATiENTS from Korea have all been accepted to perform at this years 'Liverpool Sound City Festival'. They are also hoping to build on the success of all the Korean bands who toured in the US and played at SXSW this year by holding a two week tour of England during their visit.
Unlike a lot of the bands who attended SXSW and toured the US this summer Asian Chairshot, Dead Buttons, Hellivision and PATiENTS will not be receiving any financial support from the government. They aim to raise the funds required by holding several fundraising concerts as well as having crowd funding event on tumblebug (https://tumblbug.com/ko/uktour). If you donate you can get a whole load of goodies from the bands (everything from your name on the backdrop of their set to posters bags and tickets. Cds from the bands and a whole lot more),
