What can we expect from Liverpool Loves 2016?
Last year seen the city celebrate all things LIVERPOOL in the first ever Liverpool Loves festival at the Pier Head.
Following the unprecedented success of the inaugural Liverpool Loves festival, organisers Orb CIC have announced that it will be even bigger and better in 2016!
Liverpool Loves celebrates and promotes all the fantastic things that Liverpool has to offer. The first ever event was a resounding success; hailed one of the stand-out moments of 2015 with over 27,000 people attending across the weekend.
The feel-good festival will return to The Pier Head from August 4-6.

Liverpool Loves starts on Thursday 4th August with Liverpool Loves Business, it continues on Friday 5th August with Liverpool Loves Nightlife, culminating in Liverpool Loves Festival Day on Saturday 6th August.
Free-to-attend and open to all, the highlight of the weekend will be a fun-packed family friendly event with something on offer for everyone. A diverse, home-grown music programme is supported by a host of cultural and pop-up performances providing a flavour of Liverpool’s local and international communities. Street theatre, African drummers, Brazilian dancers, Arab and Asian arts will appear alongside art installations and more – creating a sensational feast for the eyes and ears. A huge finale is planned for sunset on the main stage – watch this space.
And as well as lots of activities and events for young people and families with children, there will also be over 30 local independent food and drink stalls and bars. As part of the wellbeing programme; there will be reiki taster sessions, healthy eating businesses, children’s yoga, Morning Gloryville and much more.
