Sound City first for Ipswich

27 August 2019

BACKED BY Arts Council England, the University of Suffolk and the local council, music convention multi-venue festival Sound City Ipswich will be the first of its kind in the city.

Organised by the team behind The Smokehouse (cap, 80) and Liverpool Sound City co-founder Out Loud Music, the 4 October event will feature artistes performing across four venues.

“We feel that the programme so far, which includes grime, punk, jazz and indie, offers a truly eclectic range of styles reflecting the make-up of our home town,” says Sound City Ipswich programme manager Marcus Neal.

The other venues taking part are Ipswich Corn Exchange (950) and The Manor Ballroom (200), with a free admission BBC Introducing Stage in The Cornhill square, curated by Richard Haugh and Angelle Joseph from BBC Radio Suffolk.

Among more than 20 acts set to perform are Snapped Ankles, Novelist, H Lung, The Stupids and Diving Station.
