Silicon Dreams is an electronic music festival hosted in the birth city of British pop. Our line-up includes a number of contemporary bands and new artists who are amongst the best today – many of whom you may have never heard before. We’ll also have some classic tunes in a weekend based around the cream of synth music.

Silicon Dreams is an indoor music festival celebrating the very best of electronic synth and pop. Following a successful debut in Liverpool last year, the event has set up home in the birth city of British pop music.
For 2015, the event will span across an entire weekend – from the 5th to the 7th of June. Once again we’ll have a line-up which includes some of the best new bands on the scene today, with some new names and fresh faces. We’ll also have some very special DJ sets as well as music from the classic synth era of the late 1970s/1980s and beyond. The cream of classic meets the cream of contemporary. We’ll have two nights of live music, a unique aftershow party and special Sunday afternoon performance.
If you love synth music which is industrial, post-punk, new wave, electronic dance or synthpop – then you’ll love Silicon Dreams. The north’s festival to celebrate the best of the synth!
