Liverpool Sound City 2017
Photo Diary & Festival Highlights
The May Bank Holiday is always celebrated with an array of confetti, good vibes and brilliant bands. I can hands down say this year was the star attraction, with the site being moved to it's neighbourly Clarence Docks. Liverpool Sound City circa 2017 had a serious facelift with many interactive experiences. Where I spent my days in flamingo palm tree photo booths, meeting bands backstage and soaking up the vastly colourful atmosphere. Although dusty, and channel our inner sandmen the weather was incredibly favourable with scorching temperatures and warm summer nights. I spoke about what to expect at Sound City, so only you as the viewing population can measure up did I get more than I bargained for? For I certainly think so.
For the lack of photos of me, was replaced with good memories. So one can only apologise but I'm sure if you were at Sound City you would have seen me bobbing around to my favourite bands. This year was very favourable as I met a whole bunch of readers, which was extremely flattering. With friends all sassed up, and snazzed up, even my best friend was snapped by the Liverpool Echo's Best Dressed List wearing my famous flares of last year. You can also spot me in the list of 10 Things We Loved At This Years Liverpool Sound City. With a huge variety of food options, myself diving head first into the Mexican vendors for Quesedillas, as well as Moroccan cuisine for a lamb kebab. Although I heard incredible comments about Pure Vegan, as well as the famous halloumi fries - which you can eat on one of the big red double decker buses splashed around the site. Sadly I tried to cram every second I could to head over to do the live drawing classes - spending most of my time outside of seeing bands, in the fabulous delegate bar, or interrupting street carnivals. So whats new? A wild child born and bred.
Every year, I always look forward to coming back to Sound City, experiencing every crevice of the site, backstage, side stage, in the photo pit and in the crowds. You'll never find such a happy festival - nor will it be filled with excited Scousers that want to chant about Jeremy Corbyn.
Prior to my antics at Sound City for seeing Velvet Underground I was invited back to Voodou on Button Street for another creative session with Ro, the man, myth and maverick of everything hair as we envisioned a corrosive nuclear blast of mermaid. Using the new City Beats dyes to create unseen hair combinations, with a final bouncy curl using a crazy Babyliss curling tong that sucks up the hair and spits it out. This is what the future holds for hair, and it got me many a compliment - so I seriously do recommend booking in with this mad man for your locks. The look was completed using hair feathers from Feather & Fox.
