Liverpool Digital Music Festival With the lockdown still in place and no festivals or gigs in sight for the time being, the first Liverpool Digital Music Festival is set to sate the appetite of live music fans over the late May Bank Holiday.

Taking place on its online platform the free, socially distanced festival pulls together an impressive slew of acts to the comfort of your sofa over four days.

With a hundred artists due to feature, either live streaming a set, or airing a specially pre-recorded performance, LDMF kicks off tomorrow night (Friday 22nd May) at 8pm.

The event is being held in support of Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Music Venue Trust's Save Our Venues campaign. Raising over £1.5 million in donations in just three weeks, the campaign has ensured that over 140 grassroots UK music venues are now protected from imminent closure.

With every genre covered from pop to indie rock, punk, electronica and hip-hop, the festival’s headliners include All We Are, Zuzu, Jamie Webster, Spinn, Haarm and Natalie McCool.

A wealth of ascendant talent is featured on the undercard with alt. rock specialists SPILT, alt. pop songwriter Aimée Steven and dream pop weavers Shards.

Beginning with the launch party tomorrow night at 8pm, events kick off at noon on Saturday to Monday, with a near nonstop run of sets throughout. Visit LDMFs website for more details, including the running order and ways to donate.

Liverpool Digital Music Festival runs from 23 - 25 May 2020, launch party Friday 22nd May
