LIMF returns for summer 2022


Liverpool International Music Festival returns to the city this summer – with the 2022 event taking place across multiple indoor venues.

The three-day music event, which runs from July 29-31, has the theme Power to the People and Purpose.

The line-up includes UB40 featuring Ali Campbell, The Zutons, De La Soul, Heather Small, Aswad, Shola Ama and Red Rum Club with more than 100 artists due to be announced over the next few weeks.

Venues include the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Invisible Wind Factory, Camp and Furnace, St Luke’s Bombed Out Church, 24 Kitchen Street and District.

LIMF curator Yaw Owusu said: “I’ve curated LIMF since its inception in 2013 and it’s very much evolved into the festival we know and love today – audiences expect that mix of household names and up-and-coming talent and we’re giving them that this year in spades - albeit with a decidedly different ambition.

“Changing the location has added a really interesting dynamic, and working closely with the venues it’s easy to see how important this move is for them. It feels right to be in and around the city centre, utilising the wonderful range of venues and spaces that exist here and are the bedrock of the scene year round.

“It’s great to bring LIMF back with a high-quality and meaningful programme, that is also inclusive and diverse - once again showcasing Liverpool’s bold, contemporary music voice and attitude.”

Tickets will vary between venues and are likely to cost between £5 and £35 depending on show and location.
