Liverpool Fringe Festival presents a Bank Holiday music extravaganza – here’s Getintothis’ complete guide to what’s on and where.
The Bank Holiday weekend in Liverpool doesn’t have to mean hopping over pools of vomit down Mathew Street and listening to Fab Four cover bands from Nagasaki.
Nope, there’s a whole raft of music talent set to play across the city – and the good news is, it’s largely completely free.
So whether you watch rising GIT Award nominees the Tea Street Band at Zanzibar, superlative folk from All We Are and Bird at Elevator or take a trip into the cosmos with New Path’s alt-rock spectacular at Mello Mello, there’s plenty for any music fan to enjoy during the Liverpool Fringe Festival.
Here’s the full guide to what’s on and where. Probably best to avoid Reminiss.
