Popular Liverpool music event to return for the summer

The city that proudly spawned the Beatles has never been afraid to flex its musical muscles, and this year’s Liverpool International Music Festival promises to be one of the biggest showcases yet.

From August 18 until September 22, world beating acts like Neil Young and JLS will perform in the city, along with appearances from X Factor winners Little Mix, the world-renowned Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and a number of tribute acts who will cover the work of everyone from Queen to Robbie Williams. The Beatles will be celebrated with a week of Fab Four-related entertainment kicking off on August 21.

The festival spans the city; with shows taking place everywhere from the open air environment of Sefton Park to the epic Echo Arena and the Pier. More than 100 events will be taking place in other venues across the city, including the famous Cavern Club and Pub in Mathew Street, where music from all over the world will be celebrated.

As well as the music, there will be plenty of fairground rides and activities for children, making it a perfect occasion for the family. Welsh classical baritone Bryn Terfel will be accompanied by the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and this will sit alongside the party atmosphere of ecstatic JLS fans and the sophistication of local bands seeking guidance and stepping stones on one of the UK’s biggest platforms into the music industry.

With so much world class entertainment to choose from, the Liverpool International Music Festival is set to cater for everyone from casual day tourists to those staying in hotels on the Wirral for holidays and weekend breaks.
