What is LIMF?

A music festival that brings together global household names alongside exciting emerging new talent, showcasing exactly why Liverpool is a UNESCO City of Music.

Who is LIMF aimed at?

This is a music festival suitable for all ages. Please note the festival this year will take place across multiple venues, which have individual age restrictions.

How do people get in to see the festival?

There is something for everybody, including paid for tickets, free tickets and just turn up events.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 20 May at Early Bird prices.

Under 12’s are free (as with LIMF) and across the weekend we will be running several free gigs in some venues – more information is coming soon, keep an eye out on www.limfestival.com for more details.

Why not join the conversation on LIMF social media as well. Here you will find out what is happening and when.

LIMF used to be a free park event, why is it moving out of the park?

LIMF has been a paid for ticketed event since 2019. We ticket at a very low price point to ensure it’s accessible and to ensure we can deliver the festival year on year.

The move has been prompted in a bid to re-energise and support the city’s music sector, which was severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Do you have to pay?

For some events, yes. This is largely a ticketed festival with all venues and shows across the three days individually ticketed and priced. There are events that are free of charge, full details will be released soon and can be found on www.limfestival.com.

All tickets are general admission and unless stated, are standing.

Early Bird Standard Admission Tickets start from £5 plus booking fees.

Children aged 12 and under are FREE but still need a ticket to enter the festival site.

(Please note, there are a selection of venues that are strictly over 18+. These shows are highlighted and will not offer a FREE child’s ticket)

Are there any concessions on paid for tickets?

There are no concessions for paid for tickets – children under 12 years are free and some LIMF events are free of charge.

We are able to offer a personal assistance scheme for anyone needing the active support of another person to attend our festival. To claim a ticket for a personal assistant at no extra charge, you must purchase a full price ticket and meet the below criteria.

Personal assistant tickets are available to customers with one or more of the following:

Is there a restriction as to how many tickets I can purchase?

It depends on the event and ticket provider. Tickets are generally limited to 6 per transaction.

Yes. Due to the nature of the festival being hosted across multiple venues, there are individual venue age restrictions in place.

Ages 16+ do not need to be accompanied by an adult.
