LIMF is a credible music festival and one of the highlights in Liverpool’s calendar of events. With recent government cuts, Liverpool City Council simply can’t continue to fund it in its entirety.
By ticketing the event it allows us to off-set some of the costs of staging this fantastic festival. Paying between £11 and £26 for nine hours of live music, performed by a top quality line up means that without a doubt LIMF remains one of best value music festivals in the UK.
We realise some people may be disappointed that the festival is no longer free, but we hope you understand that we have to think differently about how we stage events if they are to continue.
Those in receipt of a ‘Residents Letter’ ahead of the festival, will be eligible to a limited number of tickets. These will be available to claim in person at the M&S Bank Arena Box Office on Friday 3 July from 09:00 until 18:00 and if there are any left following that, Friday 10 July from 09:00 until 18:00 only.

All children aged 12 and under can enter the festival for FREE, but will still need a ticket and have to be accompanied by a responsible adult (18yrs +). Anyone aged 13 and over will need to buy a Standard Admission Ticket.
