    Liverpool Sound City 2016 looks set to be one of the best festivals of 2016! Here's nine things to look out for this bank holiday weekend:


    1. In Conversation Stage - Hosted by Radio X, this is your chance to learn more about the creative industries from artists including Paddy Considine, Roison Murphy, Circa Waves and more! Brilliant talks that you do not want to miss!


    2. Brazilica - The UK's only Brazilian Carnival is here on Saturday at 5.30pm! Head on down to the Dome for an event that will have you dancing through the evening!


    3. Ryoichi Kurokawa Exhibition - The incredible artist Ryoichi Kurokawa will be on the Atlantic Stage with an exhibition presented in conjunction with FACT and Sedition, which conicides with his current solo exhibition 'Unfold'. 


    4. Bowie and Prince Tribute - This year we sadly lost two of music's most influential icons. Sound City, Dave Lynch and FACT have collaborated to bring an immersive art installation to Sound City, which pays tribute to these two beloved musical legends.


    5. Tall ships - Step on board the Tall Ship and discover incredible music in an amazing location!

    6. Freeze - Liverpool Promoters Freeze are bringing incredible sets to the Baltic Warehouse Stage. Look out for live performances from Leftfield and Floating Points! If that wasn't enough, there's also a DJ Set from the amazing Hot Chip!

    8. Wider arts and spectacles - Look out for incredible theatrical performances, including the Tron Dancers, Break dancers and more!


    9. Headliners - Sound City 2016 has more incredible Headlining acts than ever, with the amazing Catfish and the Bottlemen and The Coral. Plus, there's a set from Pete Docherty on the North Stage on Sunday!
