Taking place at the fabled Bombed Out Church by day, and the Baltic Triangle’s New Bird Warehouse by night, 48 Hours In Liverpool is a thrilling pure distillation of electronic music talent set over two pulsating days, sound-tracked by a selection of incredible headline guests and residents.

With 5 studio albums behind him, Gregor Thresher remains at the pinnacle of electronic music, the German spinner and producer a long-standing champion of the underground. Glaswegian Gary Beck is one of the scene’s brightest stars, with a slew of releases on Drumcode, Cocoon and Saved, and fellow Scotsman Theo Kottis has been making waves since his first two EPs, Waiting Game and Turning Heads, recently came out. mUmU’s resident Lee Rands and Freeze’s Jemmy finish the billing for Saturday, with a special guest to be announced.

Together they share a sonic vision that pulls together elements of house and techno with influences from pop, nu-disco and even rock music do sublime dance floor effect. They are joined by Black Coffee, one of the most influential African artists in the world, an award-winning house music DJ who is also by turns a singer-songwriter, record producer, director, fashion designer and entrepreneur.
