Liverpool Sound City has already released a cracking Line-up and to add to the exciting weekend ahead on the 5th and 6th of May, they have teamed up with Stealing Sheep for a truly unique and wonderful project.

To mark the centenary of suffrage back in 1918, trio Stealing Sheep are celebrating women with a performance inspired by the suffragette movement at the festival. Everything will be inspired by women, equality and empowerment.

Stealing Sheep say: ‘We’re doing a residency with Both Sides Now at the Invisible
Wind Factory where we’ll be inviting 15 female drummers to join us in a marching
procession that will showcase at Sound city! The procession is a celebration of women and
responds to the centenary of suffrage with female musicians and dancers from Edge Hill
University. We’re working with a choreographer called Kate Cox and working with map
projections which will be installed in the Blade Factory during the festival!’

This brand new innovative project is co-commissioned by Sound City Innovation Partner Edge Hill University and Manchester-based creative music charity Brighter Sound. The ‘Stealing Sheep’s Suffragette Tribute’ will bring together female drummers and percussionists from the Liverpool area
with design, AV and production students to create a marching band and procession featuring brand new music.

The performance will be the culmination of a five-day artistic residency led by Stealing Sheep. The residency is part of Both Sides Now, an initiative led by Brighter Sound to support, inspire and showcase female artists based in the Merseyside region and will take place across (30 Apr-4 May) culminating in a showcase at Sound City on Saturday May 5 th .

Applicants for the artistic residency and performance can apply here:

Edge Hill University have co-commissioned the piece as part of its ‘Wonder Women’
year of celebration of women’s suffrage, and empowered its students to be involved
through its innovative Student Opportunity programme. More information can be found

And to make the Saturday even better, Stealing Sheep will be among DMA'S, The Slow Readers Club, Picture This, Idles, Wye Oak and Black Honey. Plus100s more artists taking part from around the world across the whole weekend.
