Nobody quite does ‘things’ the way Liverpool does it. Whether it is giants wandering the streets, huge spiders climbing buildings or music festivals, Liverpool knows exactly how to hit the spot! The rebooting, replacement, re-engineering (call it what you like) of the Mathew Street Festival saw Bank Holiday crowds enjoying some of the best music around, and whats more, large parts of it were free. While many enjoyed the fantastic goings on at Sefton Park (and you can see exactly what I mean from Mark McNulty’s brilliant pictures ), I was covering the stage at the Pier Head. While the likes of JLS, Little Mix, The Saturdays, The Vamps and Union J played to the crowds at the Pier Head, Sefton Park was where the LIMF was truly born and really put down a marker for future events. Can’t wait for next year! Here’s some of the groups that played, I’ll add more shots for each group when I get that chance!

By the way, I’d also recommend you check out the New Mersey Beat video Mark McNulty and Seven Streets produced. If you saw it over the Bank Holiday weekend, then it’s probably till on a permanent loop in your head anyway!
