About Liverpool International Music Festival 2021
We’re sorry to announce that the Liverpool International Music Festival will not take place this year.
This has been a difficult decision for the LIMF team, but the uncertainties around the global health crisis means we simply can’t continue to plan, or stage an event of this scale.
We very much hope the situation has improved by July, but as LIMF takes many months to organise, it’s impossible to produce the high-quality festival we know and love in these timescales.
We know this will be a really disappointing decision not only for LIMF fans, but also for the wider music industry in Liverpool and beyond. LIMF is one of the city’s flagship events and each year has a positive impact on both established and up and coming artists, as well as local businesses and youth and community organisations to name a few.
Thank you for your understanding.
Stay safe everyone.
Get ready for Liverpool International Music Festival with Liverpool Gin 2019 as it heads back to the stunning Sefton Park for another weekend of unforgettable music. On 20-21 July, the stage will be set once again to bring global household names alongside the most exciting emerging new talent that LIMF is renowned for.
Headlining the Saturday is none other than the multi Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist Nile Rodgers and his pioneering band CHIC. This true legend and disco superstar, who has worked with almost every icon in pop, from David Bowie and Madonna to Pharrell and Daft Punk, will grace the Central Stage with an impressive set of tracks. A showstopper of the summer, this is one performance not to be missed.
Saturday will also see an exclusive live performance celebrating legendary label 3Beat Records’ 30th Birthday. The much loved home grown music institution will celebrate its 30 years of greatness with a show featuring over 30 musicians performing the label’s biggest hits, with special guests including platinum-selling SIGMA, British-German DJ duo M-22, Liverpool-born house producer Anton Powers, amongst others.
The unmissable live experience that is Disco Classical, with Special Guest Sister Sledge featuring Kathy Sledge will headline on the Sunday and is heralded as one the most memorable and uplifting live music experiences around. Lovers of disco are in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat, when a collection of the world’s greatest tracks including ‘We Are Family’ and ‘He’s The Greatest Dancer’ are re-imagined, reinvented and brought to the stage with the help of Manchester Camerata Orchestra, a live band and renowned crowd-pleaser DJ Mark Armstrong.
Hip-hop pioneers and living legends, De La Soul will also make an appearance as part of the festival’s eclectic offering. With a mix of irreverent lyrics, social commentary and jazz-funk sampling their impressive set is sure to entertain the crowds.
Chart-topping force Ella Eyre joins the lineup too, alongside MOBO and Brit-nominated singer-songwriter NAO, breakthrough rapper and singer Yxng Bane, and DJ and producer SG Lewis, whose electronic stylings have earned praise from Justin Timberlake and Pharrell.
The incredible Maverick Sabre is also coming to Sefton Park alongside Liverpool R&B collective MiC LOWRY, four-time Grammy-nominated DJ and producer, Kenny Dope and electrifying sets from De La Soul’s DJ Maseo, Norman Jay MBE and BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Jamz Supernova.
LIMF Academy artists will perform across a number of stages including rising star of the electronic pop scene LUNA, singer-songwriter Raheem Alameen, contemporary R&B musician KYAMI, as well acclaimed Liverpool bands and artists Eyesore & The Jinx, Bill Nickson and Pizzagirl.
With major live performances, dance-inducing DJs, as well as fun activities for all the family, LIMF 2019 is the place to be this summer. Come join the celebrations; it’s going to be epic…
