The five day festival encompasses Commissions, Partnerships and the grand finale, LIMF Summer Jam, and takes place over several iconic Liverpool venues including Sefton Park.
With the city's exceptional musical pedigree, Liverpool festivals have a lot to live up to. After all, 1/10th of Wings' members were from the city. Those are some mighty big shoes (or wing holes) to fill. Liverpool International Music Festival aims to honour its hometown's musical heritage by being the "current voice of the global music city".
The festival programme includes some themed commissioned events (a previous theme has been 'Music Migrations' and inspired a Gill Scott-Heron tribute) where LIMF engage a number of high-profile musicians and artistic directors to create some never-before-seen magic.
There's also a LIMF Academy of workshops in songwriting, production, DJing, singing etc designed to encourage the festival headliners of the future.
The beating heart of the festival is the LIMF Summer Jam at Sefton Park - a fun, free and family-friendly alfresco party with loads of big names from the world of pop. And to think we got through all of that without making a Beatles joke! Sort of. We need Help.
