After being away for the past two years, Liverpool Calling is back and bigger than ever before.
The city centre festival used to be held in the unique setting of the Bombed Out Church but is now moving to the Baltic Triangle. Taking over many of the bars across the popular district. While not forgetting their roots, Liverpool Calling is taking up residency at EBGBS, The Jacaranda and Studio 2.
As a result of needing so many venues to accommodate for a mammoth line-up, the festival take place across two days. On Friday 22nd June, Liverpool Calling will be in the heart of the city. Then the final day will see the festival move to the Baltic Triangle for it’s grand finalé.
Along with the news of a new location and extra day, the organisers also revealed the first wave of acts heading to the city this June. A band that are grabbing everyone’s attention across the UK, Sheafs will be performing. Along with them are local bands The Jackobins, Life At The Arcade and Crapsons. Brighton rockers The Wytches are pencilled in as well as Strange Bones.
The first headliner has been revealed and it’s Yorkshire alt-rockers, Pulled Apart By Horses. With a hefty back-catalogue under their belts, it’s going to get loud when they come to Liverpool Calling. Amidst all the explosive rock heading our way, for a breather there’ll be an acoustic stage. Will Varley is the man that’ll be headlining that stage.
For those looking to take a break from all the music at any point, in the Baltic Social there’ll be screenings of Alan Partridge all day on the Saturday.
There’s still more to come, including another headliner but for now, check out the line-up below.
