There’s no parking around Sefton Park during the weekend of Summer Jam so we kindly ask you not to drive in.
Every year, LIMF welcomes more visitors from all over the UK and beyond and here’s how you can find us…
*Please Note: Unfortunately due to strike action by guard members of the RMT union, a significantly reduced train service will run across the Merseyrail network on Sunday 23rd July. LIMF visitors are advised to take this into consideration when planning their journey. No industrial action is planned for mainline operators on Sunday 23rd July, meaning that festival-goers can still travel into Liverpool and around other parts of the Liverpool City Region as normal – this includes Northern services into Southport.
Key travel information and advice plus a summary of alternative travel options is included on the Merseytravel website: www.merseytravel.gov.uk/railstrike

Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport is not too far from Sefton Park where LIMF Summer Jam takes place, so when you arrive in Liverpool why not take the bus. The handy 80A bus service from the airport towards Liverpool can drop you off at Ullet Road / Croxteth Road, close to the park, or the 82A to Aigburth Road is a short walk away.
You can find more detailed information about flight timetables here.
