Established in 2012, City Sound Project brings music of all genres, from electronic DJ’s to live bands, spoken word, street art and more, to the ancient city of Canterbury for a weekend of cultural indulgence unique to the south of England. Previous headliners have included globally renowned Bastille, George Ezra, Mystery Jets, MNEK, Disciples, Duke Dumont, Mike Skinner, Slaves, Gorgon City and Hannah Wants.

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 including chapels, castles, ancient theatres, on cobbled streets, in clubs and pubs. Festival-goers exchange their tickets for a wristband on the day at one of three exchange points, which then gives them access to all parts of the festival.

Once checked in, a lanyard with a full festival program is provided, with a map of Canterbury and directions to all the festival locations and timetable of all the gigs and shows.

‘Secret Sets’ have 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.
