Getintothis continue our 10-year celebrations by teaming up with Liverpool Music Week to book more than 20 bands for the closing party on November 4, editor Peter Guy reveals the full glorious hit.
Taking place on Saturday November 4 at The Invisible Wind Factory and the adjacent North Shore Troubadour, 27 live artists and bands will play across five stages headlined by polyrhythmic guitar heroes Everything Everything.
Perfume Genius, Zola Jesus and AJ Tracey are among the closing party cast booked by Liverpool Music Week while Getintothis, as part of our ten year celebrations, have selected a stellar billing of some of the UK’s finest new and emerging acts to culminate in one colossal multi-venue happening.
Joining North Shore Troubadour headliners Perfume Genius are an array of visceral, experimental and ferocious live acts including RongoRongo, Jo Mary, Ali Horn, Deltasonic-signed God On My Right and Manchester’s Deja Vega.
Back over in the Invisible Wind Factory‘s outside courtyard Heavenly Recordings‘ The Orielles head up a diverse collective of bands noted for their live prowess including Strange Collective, FUSS, Danye, SPILT, The Bohos and Merseyside hip hop collective The L100 with orchestrator DJ 2Kind.
Liverpool Music Week director, Mike Deane, said: “We’re thrilled that the good folks at Getintothis are working so closely with us on the closing party programme this year – which is just as important as ever as we enter our 15th year anniversary festival as it was in 2003.
“Getintothis‘ knowledge, understanding and enthusiasm for the Liverpool and regional scene isn’t topped by anyone else and we thought it was only fitting to invite them for a very special curatorial role in this year’s festival to celebrate their very own incredible milestone of 10 years in the game.
“Judging by the fantastic and fresh programme they’ve come up with for the Closing Party, we made the right choice!”
With the likes of CHIC, Jungle, Dawn Penn and many, many more crammed into 10 days and nights of live music across the city, Liverpool Music Week looks certain to climax in stunning fashion.
Getintothis editor, Peter Guy, added: “Liverpool Music Week have always been big supporters of what we do here at Getintothis. They appreciate our contributors’ passion, dedication and most of all our love of new music – and so it was a real honour to be asked to collaborate with them on this year’s closing party.
“We’ve had a stage at the festival for some years now, but this feels extra special selecting the bulk of the supporting cast as they’ve put their trust in artists we’ve rated for some time – but most of all those set for special things in the future.
“We’re super chuffed with how it’s all turned out. On paper it looks like one of the strongest events of the year – I’m sure it’ll be even better in person. I can’t wait – it’s going to be wild.”
