Liverpool Music Week 2016 Announce Second Wave of Acts

Liverpool Music Week have added Amherst, Massachusetts alt-rock legends Dinosaur Jr. and rising star Louis Berry to the bill for the 2016 leg of the festival.

Elsewhere on the line up, the extremely popular DIY Breaking Out series returns to the festival for a second year to showcase the best in breaking music in another run of shows across the week at the festival hub of Arts Club on Seel Street – tickets for each of these shows will cost just £4.

Jamie Milton, NEU Editor of DIY, comments on the news: “DIY are thrilled once again to be partnering with Liverpool Music Week for its 12th edition. Following on from the huge success of the DIY Breaking Out series in 2015 which featured some fantastic, packed-out and sweaty shows from the likes of Shura & DMAs, we bring you the future of new music once again through our 2016 LMW series with another awesome run of dates at Arts Club, including the off-kilter weird pop of LET’S EAT GRANDMA, AMBER ARCADES’ hazy shoegaze, the biting poolside pop of DREAM WIFE, ABATTOIR BLUES’ psych-rock sludge, the chaotic whirlwind alt-rock of KAGOULE, and the breathless, playful euphoria of THE BIG MOON.”

The festival can now also reveal that the notorious LMW16 Closing Party is set to take place on 4th November at various venues across the newly revitalised North Liverpool Docklands and will feature a huge line up of some of the best in local and national talent.

Further details will be revealed soon, early bird tickets priced at £6 are on sale now:
