Astral Coast Liverpool

Wirral’s biggest and best new music festival Astral Coast Festival is back, showcasing the very finest musicians and bands in Merseyside.

Despite the festival’s brief history, Astral Coast has already established itself as one of the best new music festivals on Merseyside. Joining together the most up and coming new artists from the area with classic local legends, Astral Coast offers a unique day of live music in New Brighton’s Floral Pavilion.

The tiny seaside town has long been known for presenting the musical cream of the crop, including renowned performances from The Coral and The Rolling Stones.

In the previous two years headline acts at Astral Coast Festival have included MOBO award winners, NME favourites and Deltasonic recording artists, as well as exciting up and coming acts, some of whom have gone on to be critically acclaimed by both local and national press.

The line up is already shaping up to be an unmissable festival. Headliners so far include Bill Ryder Jones, once the lead guitarist of The Coral and more recently guitarist for Arctic Monkeys, Liverpool four piece Bird and Wirral band By the Sea.

As well as local talent, Astral Coast festival also includes a full programme of DJs, stalls, vintage clothes markets, fairground rides and special give-aways. With hundreds of music lovers expected at Astral Coast this July, plus a host of additional opportunities promised for the festival goers, the festival is sure to be a success.

The festival represents the coming together of Liverpool music magazine Bido Lito!, Wallasey based mental health support hub The Open Door Centre, and The Floral Pavilion Theatre.

The festival takes place at The Floral Pavilion, New Brighton on Saturday 19th July. Buy tickets here.
