Liverpool International Music Festival 2014: ‘LIMF will be *the* UK festival for global music’


LIMF 2014 is back in August with a shorter programme, yet organisers are already suggesting this year’s event will rival UK festivals for international talent.

Liverpool International Music Festival returns on August 15-30 with curator Yaw Owusu saying this year’s programme will establish it as the ‘leading UK festival for global music’.
The event, created last year after the cancellation of the Mathew Street Festival, promises big names, Merseyside talent, new artists and never-before-seen collaborations.
Owusu, curator of the festival, said: “Last year was our chance to launch the first ever Liverpool International Music Festival. This year, it’s all about making a statement and establishing the event as the leading UK festival for global music.
We’ve got some extremely exciting artists confirmed for the event and some incredible firsts. Watch this space.
