Yaw Owusu, LIMF Music Curator, said: “LIMF has been on an awesome journey since 2013; from being a new kid on the block to being an exciting, established and unique festival proposition for any music lover from across the UK and beyond. This year, our fifth, we have attempted to give you our most cohesive, yet characteristically diverse programme yet, which reflects our continued ambition, passion and desire to always step up.

“In 2017 we are celebrating a milestone – not just for us, but also for Liverpool generally as it celebrates 50 summers of great music and culture. LIMF is also celebrating amazing periods of extraordinary music, from across various genres, all of which have had a positive impact on our city’s culture and its creatives. With one eye looking back and one eye looking forward, we celebrate and Remember The Times!

“I hope that, as per years past, true music lovers come out and enjoy what LIMF has to offer – whether its the household names, the musical legends or something quirky or emerging.”
