Festival’s follow-up event gets city centre venues involved as well as trio of great causes.

Liverpool Digital Music Festival is building on the success of its inaugural event in May to announce a multi-venue streamed festival from across the city.

The free event, to be streamed on the festival’s website, follows a lockdown edition which raised over £2000 for the NHS and Music Venue Trust. The M&S Bank Arena have contributed their space as the headline stage for the August Bank Holiday event while a trio of worthwhile charities will benefit from viewer donations.

Virtual festival goers in May were treated to sets by the likes of All We Are, Spinn and Zuzu playing from their own homes, as was the style at the time. Now restrictions have eased artists will set up on stages at city centre venues Jacaranda Phase One, EBGBS and SAE Institute as well as the dockside main stage.

L8’s community mental health charity Mary Seattle House, Claire House Hospice and Merseyside Youth Association are partner charities for the event.

Artist line-up, stage times and information on how to get involved will be announced in the coming weeks and musicians can apply to play now via the festival’s website. Applications close midnight on 14th August.
