The sensational Liverpool International Music Festival was back in 2017, celebrating its fifth birthday and bringing with it yet another fantastic line up! And we were thrilled to welcome aboard London Midland as our Official Headline Partner. This year’s theme of ‘Remember The Times’ was explored and showcased pivotal music moments throughout the decades, which were the springboard for genres such as hip-hop, house and pop.
The four-day celebration of new talent, big names, musical heritage and cultural diversity was a year to remember!
Kicking off on Thursday 20th until Sunday 23rd July were are our impressive LIMF Presents events, which took place in the unique surroundings of the Sefton Park Palm House. Our hugely popular LIMF Summer Jam festival was open to all from Friday 21st until Sunday 23rd July and welcomed artists, creatives and music lovers from around the world to perform in the stunning splendour of Sefton Park.
