Colin Forshaw, Regional Director at Bruntwood, said: “We are committed to supporting events and organisations that enrich the cultural offer in the Liverpool city region, making it a better place to live, work and succeed.
“Liverpool’s unique maritime and industrial heritage has long created a melting pot of music, culture and business, inspired by the world. Sound City+ embodies that rich blend perfectly and underlines the city’s continuing role as a creative epicentre, so we are proud to support it.”
Dave Pichilingi, CEO of Sound City, said: “This year’s Sound City is going back to its roots, with the festival taking place around the Baltic Triangle and the Sound City+ conference welcoming global industry colleagues to the Pier Head.
“It’s great to have Bruntwood on board as a sponsor. It’s a company that shares many of our cultural values and our love of the city. We have developed a real synergy with the Bruntwood team and we look forward to developing that relationship with other initiatives in the future.”Music Business Worldwide
