City Sound Project is coming to Canterbury!

Other | Thursday 9th April 2015 | Annalisa

City Sound Project returns to Canterbury this May Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd), with an eclectic cross-genre line-up, featuring names from the worlds of house, hip-hop, spoken word and more across twelve stages. Headline acts include Tough Love, Disciples, Fono, Dizraeli, Matt Jam Lamont, MNEK, Blonde, Rae Morris, The Four Owls, Vaults, and Icarus to name but a few.

City Sound Project is one of the South East's largest metropolitan music festivals, borne from the frustration at a neglected music scene in Kent by directors Chris Hawksey, Blake McCaskill and Stuart O'Leary in 2012. In just three years, the festival has grown from a single-day event with a small handful of venues, to its current format of 24 headliners and twelve stages held over two days. Bringing to life the ancient locales of Canterbury, 2015’s unique venues include the oldest Franciscan chapel in the UK (built in 1267), the Grade-II Listed 16th century Penny Theatre and the secret Greyfriars Gardens.

Director Blake McCaskill has high hopes for this year’s event; "We’re expecting double the number of festival-goers as last year’s event – and are ticket sales are already reflecting that. We’re currently working on a few ‘Secret Sets’ from our headliners, with a series of unannounced gigs throughout the day in the city’s most intimate venues." Republic Events’ dedicated app is the only way festivalgoers will be able to find out the locations of all of the festival’s Secret Sets, thirty minutes before they begin.
