Festivals

Liverpool is fast becoming increasingly well-known for its festivals, which are staged throughout the year. In 2015, two of Liverpool’s very own music festivals scooped awards at the UK Festival Awards. Sound City scored a huge win, bagging The Best Metropolitan Festival and Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF) was named Best Festival for Emerging Talent.

Every year, Liverpool Sound City brings some of the most exciting breakthrough artists to the forefront. It’s the largest international music, digital and film festival and conference in the UK. The festival makes the most of Liverpool’s fantastic historic features and takes place on the Bramley-Moore Dock, complete with outdoor stage, a huge warehouse and a funfair, blending the old with the new.

LIMF Summer Jam is Europe’s largest free music event and is kind of a big deal come summertime. It takes place at Sefton Park, a stunning 235 acre public park just three miles from the city centre. Previous year’s festivals included big names such as Basement Jaxx, Katy B, Labrinth, Conrad Sewell and local Liverpool DJ Anton Powers.

But it’s not just LIMF and Sound City on the music festival scene, Sefton Park also plays host to the UK’s largest free celebration of African and Caribbean music, Africa Oyé.

Not forgetting International Beatleweek, which happens here in the home city of the Fab Four. Fans from over 40 countries travel to Liverpool for this truly international event. Always a sell-out success, so make sure to get your tickets early!

There are many more festivals happening in the city each year, covering anything from writing to comedy to Irish culture to International cuisine. Visit the Liverpool Festival City site for more of a flavour of what’s coming up.
