Taking place from 18 August to 22 September, Liverpool International Music Festival is set to be one of the biggest and most exciting new festivals in the UK.
One of the events taking place during the festival - Party at the Pier - will feature chart-topping pop acts, a six-time Platinum album selling band, an ex-X Factor star and a singer/songwriter tipped for the top.
Party at the Pier will take place on Sunday 25 August at the Pier Head and will include:
- Pop princesses The Saturdays performing hit after hit.
- Having sold more than 20 million albums, Texas return with their crowd-pleasing pop-rock tunes.
- Nina Nesbitt - relatively new to the music scene but already receiving critical acclaim for her catchy hits.
- Liverpool's own Esco Williams - regarded as one of the most exciting talents in the UK and his fusion of classic soul vocals and contemporary urban rhythms have earned him his one to watch status.
- Wowing the X-Factor judges was just the beginning for Lucy Spraggen and she is now impressing audiences with her mix of acoustic, folk and hip-hop.
- Chelcee Grimes will perform in front of a home crowd performing her self-written, urban pop tracks.
- With an unmistakeable Liverpool twang, the retro sounds of The Hummingbirds are guaranteed to impress audiences.
- Renowned for his outstanding live performances, singer songwriter KOF will show just why, despite being an unsigned act, he has a global fan base.
- The most authentic Queen act around Dios Salve a la Reina.
The tickets will also give access to the Mathew Street Music Festival Stage which will see performances from some of the very best tribute acts around including My Sweet George (George Harrison), Jean Genie (David Bowie) and Rocks Off (Rolling Stones).
