Liverpool X brought together all comers to debate the future of Liverpool as a creative and commercial entity, Getintothis hosted four of our favourite acts at Haus to show how strong the city’s present and future is.
Liverpool X, a new creative culture programme held in the Baltic Triangle served up a day of discussion, progressive thinking and live music.
Debate focussed on Liverpool and its ties to politics, the media, shaping our future, religion, how we stage and produce culture plus a whole bunch more.
In the evening, live music took over the myriad of spaces in the Baltic Triangle, including a small stage curated by Getintothis of super-talented new artists.
Among them were GIT Award 2013 winner, Baltic Fleet, who is currently in the process of following up his incredible second album Towers. He was joined by fellow GIT Award nominee Nadine Carina, who has just released her new EP Things That People Love to Remember.
Also on stage were a pair of fresh electronic tour de forces, Bantam Lions and Kalax – the former recorded a mix of his live set and the latter followed up only his second gig – at the GIT Award 2014 launch at Leaf recently – with new track, Trouble In Tokyo. Take a listen to both below.
Getintothis’ Simon Lewis also brings you some snaps from an event that showed Liverpool’s self-awareness and willingness to create, develop and nurture its creative, political, social and commercial enterprises.
