UK: City Sound Project has confirmed that it will take place from April 29 – 30 across multiple venues and sites throughout Canterbury, Kent. Headline acts announced so far include David Rodigan, White Lies, AJ Tracey, The Rifles, Hidden Charms and Spring King.

Elsewhere on the line-up are the House Gospel Choir, James Hype, Detlef, Saytek, and an exclusive showcase from London / Ibiza club brand Solid Grooves (including PAWSA, Michael Bibi and Reelow).

Established in 2012, City Sound Project stages both electronic DJs and live bands, as well as spoken word, street art and more. Previous headliners have included Bastille, George Ezra, Mystery Jets, MNEK, Disciples, Duke Dumont, Mike Skinner, Slaves, Gorgon City and Hannah Wants. Secret sets have also become a huge part of City Sound Project. These impromptu sets will not be found in the festival’s programme, instead they’re announced minutes before they happen through the official smartphone app and Twitter.

The UNESCO World Heritage site of Canterbury City plays host to this boutique festival, with gigs set inside some of the UK’s most unique locations. With stages set inside venues such as the medieval Westgate Towers and a 13th Century Franciscan Chapel, ticket-holders can experience music in venues unlike any other in the country.

The festival is hosted on multiple stages within the city walls, inside chapels, castles, ancient theatres, on cobbled streets, and in clubs and pubs.
