Liverpool International Music Festival to return in 2016

LIMFweb3The Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF) is to return to the city in July 2016.

According to organisers, the event will run 22-24 July and will include a free music event at Sefton Park, LIMF Summer Jam, the Commissions and LIMF Academy all focusing on the theme of ‘redefinition’.

Yaw Owusu, LIMF curator, said: ‘LIMF is an established event and people are used to it falling across the Bank Holiday Weekend.

‘LIMF 2015 was the most successful to date, with over 160,000 revellers making the most of the five day festival. However, we believe we can better maximise the potential and impact of this event by moving dates – strengthening our position within the wider regional, national and international festival offer.’

He continued: ‘The current quality of festivals across the UK is outstanding and LIMF has fortunately managed to improve its offer year on year. We’ve been really adept at showcasing the likes of Basement Jaxx, Labrinth, Damian Marley and Katy B in the past, alongside some really outstanding new bands and commissioned projects.’

LIMF was shortlisted in the Best Family Festival category by the UK Festival Awards.

The event is also currently in the running for two more awards including Best Festival for Emerging Talent (for LIMF Academy) and The Extra Festival Award (for Commissions).
