Mathew Street Music Festival

Mathew Street Music Festival is now the largest free annual music event in Europe.

In 2006 you can look forward to four days of live music, with over 75 bands performing on five stages across the city, in celebration of the 2006 Capital of Culture year – Liverpool Performs. More than 40 indoor venues will also be hosting free live music throughout the weekend

The RLPO will be joined on stage by top names from the Liverpool music scene; Garry Christian of The Christians will sing his poignant ballad Father; Pete Wylie of The Mighty Wah will perform his epic Heart as Big as Liverpool and Jennifer John and Thomas Lang will duet on the anthemic You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Pop legends The Lightning Seeds will be headlining the festival on Sunday 27 August – their first appearance in Liverpool since the millennium. Led by Ian Broudie, the band famous for hits such as ‘Life of Riley’, ‘Pure’, ‘Lucky You’ and ‘Three Lions’, will perform a special one-hour greatest hits gig.
