A record number of bands have applied to perform at the UK’s biggest free urban youth festival, organisers have revealed.

A total of 145 bands from across the country responded to a search to find the nation’s best unsigned acts to perform live at HUB 2008.

And after an intensive judging process involving industry professionals, the Liverpool Culture Company has announced the 13 acts that will perform in front of more than 20,000 people at Otterspool Park over Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18 2008
The event is FREE and will run from 11am-6pm on both days.

Spanning a range of musical styles – including funk, pop, indie, and rock – the bands are:

• Signified (Aigburth)
• Connecting Flight (Litherland)
• Hades Chariot (Walton)
• Metro Manila Aide (Mossley Hill)
• Gorbachov (city centre)
• The Buizniez (Kent)
• Vacancy in 305 (Garston)
• Tied Up (city centre)
• Crash Ambers Party (Crosby)
• Sensorites (Walton)
• Elevators (Leeds)
• Foeism (Wavertree)
• Killaflaw (Mossley Hill)

South Liverpool act Metro Manila Aide will be taking part in HUB for the fifth time this year. Band member Paul McBride said “It’s important to have a festival for the people of Liverpool with the backing of the city. HUB always combines music, dance and art in equal portions and when the sun comes out it’s great to rock out on the massive stage.”

Successful artists will be joining confirmed headliner Shlomo, one of the world’s finest human beatboxers, who will perform a special one hour set using only his voice on Sunday. Young Kof, Sona Family & Outthebox, Lazy Habits and BabyGravy complete the line-up.
