INTERNATIONAL BEATLEWEEK featuring UK Music Legend Joe Brown

Tue 27th August 2013 at Cavern Club
14:00
Tuesday is the last day of International Beatleweek, but is always a highlight. This year we are very excited and proud to have one of the UK?s greatest ?rock ?n? rollers? to formally end a week of parties, laughter, celebration, memories and new friendships. Joe Brown MBE is not only a legend with The Bruvvers, but poignantly he was one of George Harrison?s best friends. It is very fitting that he formally brings our whole celebration to a conclusion. Echoes of his memorable tribute See You In My Dreams brought a close to the ?Concert for George? in 2002, a memory that will last for ever for all true Beatles fans everywhere.

Liverpool pop star Rebecca Ferguson to play Liverpool International Music Festival 2013

Rebecca Ferguson is the latest top name to be added to the Liverpool International Music Festival.

The Liverpool-born star will perform in the beautiful surroundings of Sefton Park on Monday 26 August.

The free performance will take place on the Summer Sessions stage, with Rebecca saying: 'I'm always proud to perform in my home town. Looking forward to seeing you all there!'

Monday's Summer Sessions stage will also see Soul II Soul, The Christians, The Vocal Orchestra and Picture Book also .

Liverpool's best new musicians are to play a stage hand-picked by Getintothis and Bido Lito! - full details here.

LIMF's Music Curator, Yaw Owusu, said: "We're delighted Rebecca is part of the festival - she is a great ambassador for Liverpool's musical talent, and hearing her rich vocals in the lush surroundings of Sefton Park is bound to be a festival highlight for many.

"It's amazing to think we've only been planning this event for a matter of months - I'm really proud of the diverse nature of the line-up, and think we can safely say there is something for everyone.

"From the a fantastic weekend of pop and tribute acts at the Pier Head at an incredibly low ticket price, right through to a classical evening courtesy of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and a stage dedicated to the very best of world music - the eclectic mix will appeal to a broad range of music lovers.

"And if that wasn't enough, we've still got another surprise or two up our festival sleeves..."

I like this video from Joe from when it was first announced, there's a little snippet about the business festival next year too that makes the two months that particular festival runs for sound like next year will be a great year for us too.

The Charlatans join festival line-up

One of the UK’s seminal rock bands has joined the Liverpool International Music Festival line-up.

The Charlatans, who have notched up 11 studio albums – including three number one albums – and had 17 hits in the UK’s singles chart, will play a very special gig in St George’s Hall on Monday 26 August.

The band is playing select venues in 2013 and this will be only their third festival appearance this year. They are taking time out from their current recording sessions to play the show at the Hall and are delighted to be invited to perform.

Bassist Martin Blunt said: “It’s great to be part of the city’s first International Music Festival, performing in the legendary St George’s Hall venue will be a first for us – the whole band are looking forward to it.”

They will perform in the beautiful surroundings of the Great Hall and will be joined by:
• DJ and producer Greg Wilson who has a global following and was the first DJ ever to mix live on UK television back in 1983
• The Tea Street Band – a Liverpool five-piece who combine wistful vocals and stunning melodies
• Six-piece Wirral band By the Sea who are rapidly generating a reputation for being one of the best live acts in the city
• The Fallows – formed in 2010 pride themselves on their indie rock and roll tunes and enjoyed a successful tour of the UK last year.

Event manager at St George’s Hall, Zoe Ironmonger, said: “We’re so pleased to be part of LIMF, and the Great Hall is going to be an amazing venue for The Charlatans who are one of the best live bands around.

“It will be a really unique experience for their fans to see them perform in such a stunning Grade I listed building, and to have local acts also taking to the stage will be a treat for everyone involved.

“It’s also great because St George’s Hall was built to host the city’s triennial music festival, so it’s nice that nearly 160 years later the building is being used as originally intended!”

As part of the event, there will also be a musical extravaganza in the Concert Room courtesy of Cooking Soup – whose mission it is to showcase unsigned bands from across the country. The Cooking Soup stage will see performances from Police Squad, Deadbeat Echoes, Regency, The Bibelots, Psyence, Welcome Pariah, Violet Class, Wilson Minds and Barnie Sloanes.

The team at St George’s Hall are working with Liverpool promoters Freeze to bring the exciting event to the Hall.

Yaw Owusu, LIMF music curator, said: “I think people will continually be surprised by the line-up and we’re delighted to add The Charlatans to the roll call of fantastic acts.

“Whatever your taste, the festival caters to it. We’re really proud of the programme for this inaugural year, and without a doubt Liverpool is the place to be this summer.

“The excitement around the festival is definitely building and I know people are excited about experiencing Liverpool’s newest musical offering!”

Tickets (which cover all the acts performing in the Hall) are £32.50 plus booking fee and can be bought from www.limfestival.com / www.ticketquarter.co.uk / www.skiddle.com / www.eventim.co.uk.

Please note, there are a limited number of tickets.

Tea Street are getting about like the clap at the moment. Saw them 3 times in the last year and they seem to be picking up a bigger following each time.

Free Fringe Festival announced at Eric’s.

Eric's on Mathew Street will still be putting on a weekend of free live music over the August Bank Holidays. The Liverpool Echo's music editor Jade Wright will be curating a stage over the weekend for the second year running at the venue.

Some of the names already lined up to perform are The Coral's Ian Skelly, who released his debut psych-pop solo album last year Cut From A Star to rave reviews and former Black Velvets man Dave Dutton. The Sums frontman Digsy who will be performing a special acoustic solo show along with newcomers The 45s, a young Rhythm & Blues band inspired by the great Chess Records from Chicago.

Also on the bill are The Bad Pennys, 10 Reasons to Live, The Marc Kenny Band, The Mac Brothers and Ukebox, with more names to be announced in coming weeks.

Liverpool three piece The Bad Pennys have been locked up rehearsing for most of the year and are really looking forward to playing live again. Influenced by Jimi Hendrix, The Stereophonics, The Red Hot Chili Peppers to the Beatles. Ex Bo Weevils bass player Andy Holland from The Bad Pennys said. 'We've been itching to play live and show off our new tunes including Gooseys which we released a video too catch it on you tube and hope to see you at Eric's''

Peter 'Digsy' Deary will be performing an acoustic solo show "As the rest of the band are all busy off sunning themselves I was contemplating doing a Freddie Mercury or Steptoe tribute but I'll stick to doing myself " says Digsy who promises to play a real mix of The Sums and Smallers back catalogue.

Despite only leaving school this week The 45s are already being championed by Dr Feelgood's Wilko Johnson and have recently supported Bill Wyman and McFly.

Lead guitarist Tom Hamilton-Hughes said "We've been recording in Parr Street Studios and we popped into Eric's to see a gig a couple of weeks ago and thought this is one place we'll have to come and play so we were really excited to be asked by Jade to play at their bank holiday festival. "

Having only finished their exams this week the band are in the process of moving to Liverpool from their hometown of Carlisle "It's been really great to meet people here and see some of the sights. Liverpool is the the home to such great music, which is why they wanted to come here and we can't wait move down."

Music Director at Eric's Ethan Allen said; "We will be putting on free music across the bank holiday weekend. As well as our usual free live cover bands who'll be performing across our Rubber Soul and Mathew Street Live sites, we have some great original music in Eric's.

With the success we had with Jade Wright's Mathew Street stage last year at Eric's we are delighted to be working with her again and are really excited to be bringing another eclectic mix of original talent.

With the likes of Ian Skelly and new bands like The Bad Pennys or if you are into your blues sound with The 45s to a musical veteran like Digsy. We've definitely got something to suit everyone's taste."

Although it is cheating a bit to say that different events not covered by a single ticket price are actually part of one festival, they have made a decent fist of this, with it only being iit's first year.

The New Mersey beat


The city’s always moved to its own rhythm. Its own beat.

Celebrating the pulse of the place we call home, Liverpool culture magazine SevenStreets has been working with the band Picture Book, aka Dario Darnell and Lorne Ashley, filmmaker Mark McNulty and a cast of city characters who move and shake in all the right places.

Together, they’ve created an entirely new commission in celebration of the city’s newest festival, the Liverpool International Music Festival.

The New Mersey Beat is a composition and film that weaves together the sounds of the city – from the percussion of our pedestrians to the whirl and hum of the hairdryers at Herberts.

“We’ve always celebrated music and creativity in its widest sense,” says SevenStreets editor David Lloyd, “and we were keen to show that, in this city, culture and coolness isn’t constrained within the walls of our world class institutions. Nor is the most exciting music ring fenced in the city’s hottest clubs.”

“We love the sound of the city – the streets, the buskers, the folk singers, the choirs, the cool kids and the curious characters…so we wanted to weave these real music makers together in a piece that really evoked a sense of place. A celebration of the musical DNA that makes up Liverpool.”

“Liverpool and music are my two favourite subjects so put them all into one project and I’m a happy man with a camera,” says McNulty. “I’ve been documenting Liverpool and it’s music scene for over 20 years so to put such a cross section of it into one short film, from lone drummers to the biggest band in town, was just fantastic.

“I’m very excited for the release of the New Merseybeat project and very proud to have been involved in helping make it happen. The music and visual is a testament to the wonderfully vibrant music city we live in and the amazing vision of Dave Lloyd, Picture Book and Mark McNulty,” says LIMF curator Yaw Owusu.

For Picture Book, Dario Darnell says it simply:

“What a perfect opportunity to give our best back to a city that gave us it’s best. Thanks go to Liverpool; its people and its music made us.”

The piece will be performed live, in Sefton Park, on Monday, August 26th.

From the BBC -

Quote:
Damien, Stephen and Julian Marley to play Liverpool festival

A Merseyside festival organiser has said he is "over the moon about getting not one but three" of reggae legend Bob Marley's sons to play.

Liverpool International Music Festival's Yaw Owusu said it was a "real coup" to have Damien, Stephen and Julian Marley at the event.

The brothers will appear at the Sefton Park event as part of the Ghetto Youths International Crew.

The group, which includes Stephen's son Jo Mersa, will play on 25 August.

Mr Owusu, the event's music curator, said having a "performance from a Marley brother was on my wish list when I first started programming back in February".

"To say I'm over the moon about getting not one but three of the leading reggae stars would be an understatement.

"It's a real coup, particularly as they have never before played in the city."

The Farm to perform in Stanley Park during LIMF

LEGENDARY band The Farm are to perform at Stanley Park as part of this year’s Liverpool International Music Festival.

They will headline a special free gig on Sunday 8 September in Anfield.

The group who had eight top forty hit singles in the UK including Groovy Train and All Together Now, will be returning to the stage with their original line–up.

More recently they performed on the Justice Collective song, He Ain’t Heavy, in aid of the Hillsborough campaign.

Lead singer Peter Hooton said: “'It’s a real honour to be invited to play in Stanley Park by the Liverpool International Music Festival.

“The whole group are really excited to be playing there on what looks like a great day out.

“We have played quite a few festivals this summer and we can't think of a better way to end the festival season.”

The Farm toured the world between 1990 and 1994 but went their separate ways in 1995 but continued to enjoy popular appeal and their records have become all time classics.

In December 2010 the original line-up returned to play their home city and it was such a success that they decided they should play live again.

LIMF music curator, Yaw Owusu, said: “The gig at Stanley Park will be another must-see event for music lovers and I am absolutely delighted that The Farm have agreed to be part of the inaugural year of the event.

“This adds to an amazing line up, from Little Mix, Union J, JLS and the Saturdays at the Pier Head to four days of amazing free music in Sefton Park with Soul II Soul, Rebecca Ferguson and the sons of Bob Marley.”

Mayor Joe Anderson said: “Stanley Park is in the heart of north Liverpool and it is a great space to hold a music event. We are determined to make sure that people right across the city get the chance to be part of LIMF.”

The Farm gig will form part of the Stanley Park Festival, which celebrates all of the positive things happening in the Anfield area.


Charlatans postpone LIMF gig following death of drummer Jon Brookes

The Charlatans have postponed their Liverpool International Music Festival show at St George's Hall following the death of drummer Jon Brookes.

A message from the band on Twitter read: "The show at St George's Hall, Liverpool on 26th August has been postponed. All tickets are valid for the future date or available for refund.

"Apologies, the band appreciate all your support, but due to Jon's passing we felt it too raw to play this show at present."

Jon had suffered a seizure on tour with the band in 2010 and had been receiving treatment for a brain tumour.

He had undergone several operations, but had still been working on new material with the band over the summer.

He died in hospital on last Tuesday morning with his family at his bedside.

Rebecca Ferguson at LIM Festival -


All the fun of the fair -


Emma B from Smooth FM claimed there were 40,000 people on the Review Field. See if you can count them all -






A bit of a shame the second stage had already wrapped for the day before 5pm. Indeed as we passed, the riggers were already dismantling it -


It was a bit of a shame Rebecca's set was seemingly suffering from low sound levels. When stood on parts of the Review Field, it was difficult to hear her properly, something I heard others comment on. Oddly, after her set, when DJ Dev took to the stage, someone seemed to find the volume control, as his set was so loud you could hear it word perfect many streets away from the park. Still with an event this size, there will always be a couple of gremlins, and people seemed to really enjoy her performances regardless.

A few thoughts -

I think that if the park is to be used, there needs to be extra effort and resources put into encouraging people not to arrive at the park by car. On the way to the park, I noticed even streets that are well over a mile from the main stages were bumper to bumper with parked cars, not to mention people parking on grass verges, between trees, and even risking it on double yellow lines. Also, thanks to road closures, those driving around vainly looking for a parking space were being funnelled up narrow residential streets, already overloaded with parked cars, resulting in severe congestion. I think the shuttle buses from the city centre were a great idea, but I wonder if this could be expanded upon to provide a park and ride service? Utilise existing car parks in other areas, and run direct buses from multiple locations around the city. This would I'm sure result in a not insignificant numbers of cars related to the event, not actually strangling the roads around the park. Accepting that some people will arrive by car no matter what, I don't know why they decided to prevent parking on the inner side of the perimeter road around a good part of the park. With parking already at a premium, needlessly blocking a couple of hundred parking spaces seems like a bad idea.

Obviously this is the first time an event of this scale has been tried, and inevitably there will be a learning curve, and things that will can be improved upon, however on the whole, it seems to me like it has been staged very well, and has undoubtedly been a huge success.

Yes, the traffic and parking situation was manic. When we left to go home - the stretch of Queen's Drive between Greenbank Drive and the park had been closed off altogether.

A few pictures from today - lots more on my thread. The Christians were great performers; really enjoyed their set:

I took a stroll through Sefton Park this morning. As much as I support the LIMF, as someone for whom the park represents a regular haunt to get a little peace away from life's day-to-day stresses, it's nice to get that serenity back. Anyway, it was pleasing to see just how fast the park is being returned to normal. With some of the smaller facilities like the maze, and the chill-out zone, you can barely tell they were ever there. The tennis courts which were used as a quad bike circuit were back in use in their more traditional guise already, while the park is looking surprisingly clean and tidy given the amount of rubbish that must have been generated. The second stage is already gone, with just a few fences and a generator left, while the fairground is almost ready to leave the site, while the main stage is also coming down quickly.

I can't find a link at the moment, but Radio City were reporting earlier that Big Joe has said the LIMF has exceeded all expectations, with over 250,000 people turning out over the weekend, and he has promised that next year's event will be even bigger.

Liverpool International Music Festival will be biggest in Europe in five years

Liverpool International Music Festival was such a “phenomenal” success organisers say it will be the biggest in Europe in five years.

Tens of thousands of people partied in Sefton Park and the Pier Head during the weekend, with an improved music line-up and good weather drawing big bank holiday crowds.

Monday’s line-up drew the biggest audience to the park, as crowds totalling up to 60,000 picnicked in the sunshine while Rebecca Ferguson, Deaf School, Soul II Soul, The Christians, Connie Lush and Deaf School played across two stages.

Liverpool’s director of culture Claire McColgan said: “It’s been bigger and better than we could have ever imagined. Normally you would have a year to plan a festival like this, but we had just five months after the decision was taken to move away from the Mathew Street Festival.

“It’s been fantastic. We have seen thousands and thousands of people enjoying Sefton Park. From the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on Friday night through to the up and coming Liverpool bands, the world music day and the beautiful Bank Holiday Monday, we couldn’t have asked for better.”

Ms McColgan emphasised the family-friendly aspect of the new festival and said: “It’s been great to see families using the park, walking from one stage to another and enjoying the activities in the chill out zone. “The Pier Head stages were a big success too, drawing in some big name bands.

“The Mathew Street Festival was popular and it was always going to be a hard decision to change the format, but I can see this new festival having a real future. This is year one, and we will go away, digest it and come back with something even better next year. It’s part of a five-year plan – we see it being like an Edinburgh Festival for music lovers. Given what’s happened this weekend I think we are well on our way there.”

The event came in within its budget of £540,000, 40% lower than the £900,000 spent in previous years on the Mathew Street festival.

Ms McColgan said: “This year we were able to spend our budget on acts rather than infrastructure.”

LIMF music curator Yaw Owusu added: “In five years we want to be the biggest city-based music festival in Europe.

“This weekend has been like a dream come true. The things that we planned and worked on for so long came to life, but bigger and better than I could ever have expected.

“For me, the personal highlights were the world music stage on the Sunday and the huge crowds on Monday, but then I really enjoyed the Pier Head events and the Liverpool Music Awards too. It’s been a fantastic weekend.”

In total around 150,000 attended the free events in Sefton Park, with 21,000 buying tickets for the paid for stages at the Pier Head.
