Free live gigs across the city.

LIVE local music is at the heart of the new, Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF), which has replaced the city's annual August Bank Holiday knees up, the Mathew Street Festival.

Last weekend saw a smorgasboard of acts perform in Sefton Park, the Pier Head and at various venues throughout the city centre. However, it's not over yet, as the bandstand element of the fledgling festival will see local bands perform live, free gigs until September 8. Providing a platform for new and emerging local talent, the LIMF Bandstand events will take place at the Stanley Park bandstand, Sefton Park bandstand and the new Liverpool Bandstand in Williamson Square.

Until Sunday, September 8, these three venues promise an eclectic array of entertainment that truly boasts something for everyone. From swing bands to acoustic, electronica, rock, reggae, funk, folk and ska, along with some great opportunities to take part in vocal harmonies, dance displays and drumming circles, the bandstand programme is music to everyone's ears.

Bandstand events are still to take place on all three bandstands. On Sunday, September 1, from 12.30pm-5pm, the Sefton Park Bandstand will see performances take place in association with the city's Threshold Festival. While, on Sunday, September 8, from 12.30pm-5pm, there will be live performances on Stanley Park Bandstand, as part of the Stanley Park Festival.

The Williamson Square Bandstand, meanwhile, will feature live music from 12.30pm until 6pm on Thursday, August 29, Friday, August 30 and Saturday, August 31, with Saturday's programme held in association with The Cavern.
