Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF) 2017
Photographs by Jo Forrest,

THE Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF) took place over 20 July and 23 July 2017. The attendance was considerably down on previous years, as too was the advertisement of the event. This free music festival is a very much reduced version of the former Matthews Street Festival, that it replaced a few years back. Despite this the show proved to be very enjoyable for all who attended. The festival was again held within Sefton Park, Liverpool. This event celebrates musical talent, heritage and cultural diversity, with bands from all over the world taking part on 4 stages. 1 of the stages was also placed within a Grade 1 listed building, known as the Palm House.

Please click on here to see our photographic coverage of this event.

This event we are told was also affected by the disruption coursed by the Rail strikes, that took place on the Sunday and we would like to know if it did affect you or not.  If you attended or took part, please email your thoughts, both good and bad, about this event to our newsroom via emailing:- News24@SouthportReporter.Com. The next LIMF will be held again in Sefton Park, over 20 July to 22 July 2018 and for more information visit:- LIMFestival.Com.
