The future isn’t what it used to be.
For our part in Distractions, the three-day summit that debates the future of entertainment, Sound City presents a day-long conference on 19 July the delves into the newest music and tech – and the intersection between the two. Tech is driving future entertainment. AR, VR, MR, 3D immersive technology, facial recognition in stadiums, ticketing and social media – they all make global entertainment bigger and more innovative than ever. The new talent of the future is as likely to be a digital designer as much they are a DJ or performer, a fact that raises questions and invites opportunity.

Alongside is a diverse, exciting music programme, at Festival Square, the heart of Manchester International Festival, curated by an independent A&R panel made up of some of the most influential voices in the music industry.
