Gwenno is performing a one-off set at Liverpool Sound City, and is looking for acts to join her

The set will involve some of Liverpool’s most exciting emerging female talent

Liverpool Sound City have announced that Gwenno is performing at the festival with a special one-off performance of brand-new work with her producer, Rhys Edwards, as well as some of Merseyside's most exciting emerging female talent.

Gwenno's project encourages the exploration of concepts inspired by a sense of place and people, drawing from Liverpool's rich and varied communities.

The five day residency and show are part of an ongoing partnership with Both Sides Now, a pioneering initiative from music charity Brighter Sound to support women in music across the North. This continues Sound City's position as the UK's leading independent festival for new and emerging talent.

Gwenno told The Liverpool Tab: "We're so very looking forward to spending a week exploring sounds and ideas with everyone. Working through the creative process collectively is so exciting and we can't wait to see where we end up. Liverpool is a hugely inspiring city, so full of incredible stories so we're all in for a treat."

If you're interested in applying to join Gwenno, the deadline to apply is midnight Sunday 31st March, and more details can be found here.

Liverpool Sound City takes place over the weekend 3rd-5th May, and features acts such as Loyle Carner, Mabel, The Magic Gang and Shame.
