BRIT award winners and Mercury Prize nominees Friendly Fires have just been revealed as headliners of Liverpool Sound City 2020 - their first UK festival announcement of the year.

Returning to the scene after an eight year hiatus, the English indie trio unleashed the critically-acclaimed Inflorescent - an eleven track offering of straight-up disco-pop - in August 2019, with a following EP of remixes from the likes of PBR StreetgangCosmo's Midnight and Bristol-based electronic duo Icarus.

Speaking about the festival coup, Sound City MD Rebecca Ayres said: "Friendly Fires are a band that insist you to throw off your inhibitions, they’re heartfelt and romantic, and a perfect party starter… we're so excited to be bringing them back to Liverpool for the first time in over a decade to lead our riotous global street party."

Friendly Fires will be joined by hundreds of other bands and acts criss-crossing sixteen venues around Liverpool's Baltic Triangle over the May bank holiday weekend (1-3 May).

Other acts confirmed for 2020 include Manchester goth-pop quartet Pale Waves, Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess, Marika HackmanThe Blinders, Stealing Sheep, The Snuts and rising northern newcomers The Lathums - see the full line-up below.

Billed as 'a sprawling block party where pop-up bars, clubs, warehouses, workshops and scrap-yards make way for the hottest new music talent from around the globe', the festival also features an accompanying music conference, Sound City+, with panels, workshops and InConversations from a wide range of industry professionals.

Pre-sale tickets for Liverpool Sound City 2020 are now on sale via Skiddle - see below.
