LIMF Bandstand 2015


The Bandstand Festival
is back for a third year, bringing some of Liverpool’s best music to the beautiful Stanley & Sefton Parks. Since it started in 2013 the festival has played host to over 300 performers of all genres; everything from Kenyan drummers to experimental electronica, thirty-five piece brass ensembles to one man bands. We’ve entertained over one thousand lucky picnickers, dog walkers, cyclists and strollers.

Join us for Saturdays in Sefton Park and Sundays in Stanley Park from 8 August – 6 September 2015 for free, great outdoor entertainment in these historic spaces. They’re the perfect stages for the soundtrack to your summer.

The lineups for each day are now available below – more acts will be added soon, so watch this space!
