An exciting new festival featuring music, theatre, film and dance will take place in Liverpool this month.The Angel Field festival, hosted by Liverpool Hope University, will present an eclectic line-up of local, national and international artists between Friday 22nd March and Saturday 30th March.
Hope’s newly-renovated Creative Campus on the outskirts of the city centre will host many of the events, with others across different locations through collaboration with partners such as Tate Liverpool, FACT, National Museums Liverpool, the RLPO, and Milapfest.The Angel Field Festival has also been selected to form part of BBC 6 Music’s Festival, which is taking place in Liverpool between 29th and 31st March.
From the Frank Sinatra-inspired sound of the renowned Phil Shotton Big Band, to a concert of newly commissioned work by Liverpool-based IMMIX Ensemble (Erased Tapes), Angel Field has a deliberately broad appeal. Some of the region’s best up-and-coming bands, including highly-rated indie-pop outfit Nikki & The Waves, will also perform, while concerts from The Pagoda Chinese Youth Orchestra, and from musicians from Tomsk, Siberia, add a global dimension to the schedule. Contemporary music features prominently with concerts by Pixels Ensemble, Kerem Quartet and Jan Kopinski’s Reflector II.
