Set to play on the final night of the UK’s biggest metropolitan music festival, the gig will take place in their iconic DIY underground carpark stage, which will be transformed into a mega industrial music venue for the three days of the festival. Lastyear saw Bastille play a stunning set in the same venue to an intimate audience of 800 festival goers.
Said Alex Simmonds, Marketing Manager at Sound City: “This a real coup for Sound City. The Kooks are back bigger and better than ever and they are joining the best bill we’ve ever had. It’s going to be an incredible sign-off to this year’s festival.”
The Kooks join an already mighty line up at Sound City 2014 including the likes of Kodaline, Gruff Rhys, Clean Bandit, Jagwar Ma, Public Service Broadcasting, Blood Red Shoes, Jungle, Wolf Alice, Darlia, Circa Waves, Thumpers, Jon Hopkins, Albert Hammond Jnr., The Hold Steady, Jimi Goodwin, Drenge, Mixhell, Royal Blood, The Wytches, Fat White Family, Superfood, San Farmin, Lyla Foy, East India Youth, Bipolar Sunshine,Pins, Glass Animals, Bird, Factory Floor, Ratking, Say Lou Lou, Sunshine Underground and many many more.
