Matthew Street Festival

New Liverpool music festival announced

Liverpool International Music Festival is to replace the 20 year old event – keeping its very best elements, but introducing new, exciting ingredients which will see the city come together in a celebration of all things music.
 
The event will take place in August, with activities catering for a diverse range of tastes. 
 
Part of the new festival will take place during the August bank holiday with events that weekend kicking off in classical style on the Friday as the internationally acclaimed Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and chief conductor Vasily Petrenko take to a brand new stage in Sefton Park for an evening of live music in the stunning surroundings of one of the city’s most popular green spaces. The concerts in the park will continue across the four days (Friday to Monday). 
 
On the Saturday and Sunday, there will also be two outdoor stages located at the Pier Head which will include a tribute to the Beatles and their musical legacy.  Programmed by Mathew Street Music Festival Directors Bill Heckle and Dave Jones, it will be a mixture of cover acts and original artists.
 
The hugely successful Fringe Festival will return for 2013 adding a cutting edge element as the city celebrates its original grassroots musicians in venues which support live music all year round.
 
More events with private sector partners will take place in August, and following collaboration with local, national and international partners the programme is set to be announced in May.  
 
The change comes following consultation with those in Liverpool’s music sector who supported a new format for the festival.
 
The popular International Beatle Week, organised by Cavern City Tours, will take place from 21-27 August.
