LIMF is back for 2022 with a whole new look

This year, one of Liverpool’s most popular events, LIMF, returns with a brand new look and a new mission to boost the city’s music industry.

Liverpool International Music Festival, known for showcasing the best international and national household names alongside rising talent at an affordable ticket price, will be held in a brand new venue from Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31.

LIMF is back for 2022 with a whole new look

Unlike past years, LIMF will take up place in around 25 venues and outdoor spaces in the city centre this year. The decision was made in order to re-energise and promote the city’s music industry, which had been severely harmed by the Covid-19 outbreak.

As a massively popular event in the city’s events calendar, the LIMF team wants music-lovers to experience amazing performers in the city’s diverse range of incredible venues, and in the process, bring them much-needed footfall and a financial boost to help with their recovery after an unpredictable two years.

So who is on the multi-venue, line-up?

British reggae and pop band legends UB40 ft Ali Campbell, iconic American hip hop trio De La Soul, Liverpool royalty The Zutons, one of the hottest new bands around at the moment Red Rum Club, all-female DJ Collective Girls Don’t Sync, critically acclaimed rapper Kojey Radical, electrifying performers House Gospel Choir and the singer behind the unmistakable M People vocals, Heather Small, are among the first acts to be announced for LIMF 2022.

Venues include the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, the Bombed Out Church (St Luke’s), Invisible Wind Factory, 24 Kitchen Street, District, Arts Club Liverpool and Camp and Furnace. 

It’s a mixture of free and ticketed events, and there’s something for everyone with under-18 gigs such as LIMF Presents… The Shubz which will see a host of BBC Radio 1XTRA DJs including Kenny AllStar, Sian Anderson and Cuppy playing the very best in grime and hip hop. 

The theme of LIMF 2022 is Power to the People & Purpose, and is a homage to those game-changing, trailblazing people, movements and music genres who empowered change for the better.

Liverpool’s Cabinet Member for Culture and Visitor Economy, Councillor Harry Doyle, said:

“It feels fantastic to be in a position where our Culture Liverpool team is back to doing what it does best – staging major events which residents and visitors love. And our ability to do this so well is one of the reasons why we have such an outstanding, and enviable reputation in the cultural world. 

“We thought long and hard about LIMF 2022 and what it should look like, and after hearing from the sector itself about the challenges that are still in place, the right thing to do was change the LIMF location. 

“Our culture, leisure and hospitality sector is the heartbeat of Liverpool and this reimagined festival means we can drive footfall not only to the music venues but to other restaurants, shops, pubs and clubs in the city. 

“It’s an exciting year for the festival and we can’t wait to welcome back old and new LIMF-ers – so don’t miss out and get your Early Bird tickets today!”

Over 100 more artists are set to be announced in the coming weeks.
