Liverpool Digital Music Festival
Various venues – 29-31/08
LIVERPOOL DIGITAL MUSIC FESTIVAL is building on the success of its inaugural event in May to host a multi-venue streamed festival from across the city. The free event, featuring sets from ZUZU, THE MERCHANTS, MUNKEY JUNKEY, and NATALIE MCCOOL, 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. L8’s community mental health charity Mary Seacole House, Claire House Hospice and Merseyside Youth Association are partner charities for the event.
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 Phase One, EBGBS and SAE Institute, as well as the dockside main stage. The students of SAE will get valuable real world/digital world experience, with students of Audio Production to Game Art Animation taking on a range of roles. Artist line-up and stage times are still to be announced at time of writing.
