Sounds Of The City 2020
Sounds of the City is back in July 2020, taking over Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl for a series of headline concerts, featuring Foals, Crowded House, Kaiser Chiefs and Razorlight, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, Lewis Capaldi, DMA’S, The Streets and Haçienda Classiçal. Sounds Of The City has established itself as a staple part of the Manchester music scene with some of the most acclaimed live artists taking to the stage.
From playing chaotic house parties in their home city of Oxford to becoming major festival headliners across Europe, Foals’ trajectory has been remarkable. Since forming in 2005 they’ve earned critical acclaim (NME and Q Award wins, plus Mercury Prize, Ivor Novello and BRIT Award nominations) and fan devotion (1.7 million sales of their four Gold-certified albums, plus over half a billion streams at Spotify since 2015) in equal measure. And while the majority of contemporaries have fallen by the wayside, Foals continue to hit new peaks.

This Manchester outfit blend falsetto vocals with synths, guitars and discordant pop hooks. Quirky singles like 'Photoshop Handsome' have seen comparisons to XTC, Wild Beasts and Django Django, but the band also have a sound all of their own. Their 2011 debut release 'Man Alive' was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and they have received three nominations for an Ivor Novello award. After an initial level of cult success, they broke through in 2013 with second album 'Arc' which reached no.5 on the UK album charts, followed by 2015's 'Get To Heaven' at no.7 and 2017's 'A Fever Dream' at no.5.
