LIMF curator Yaw Owusu gives us his LIMF Top Tens
As if LIMF 2017 is this week! The biggest free music festival in Europe hits Sefton Park from Thursday bringing with it over 100 musicians across 5 stages and hopefully a whole load of sunshine too.
We will be bringing you all the action as it happens across the weekend on LIMF TV, you can watch all of our build up so far here.
Also this year for the first time ever you can upgrade to do LIMF VIP style. More info this way.
In the mean time though rather than us do the talking let’s get straight to the man who puts it all together in terms of the festival lineup, LIMF curator, Yaw Owusu will be hand picking his Top Tens this week and first up it is his top ten must-see acts.
Leading into LIMF 2017, I thought I’d do a few of my personal Top Ten things to check out.
The first category is…Top Ten Live Performances To Catch
Now obviously there’s around 300 plus performances happening across the festival weekend so VERY hard to choose but here are some of the artists I think should be on everyone’s list.
1 – Garage Classical (Friday, Central Stage)
I hope I’m not going on too much but UK Garage Chart hits (that we all know and love) with a 45 piece orchestra and the original vocalists. Plus it’s a world first.
2 – Gorgon City (Saturday, Central Stage)
Party starters and pace setters. Should close the Saturday festivities in a niiiice way.
3 – Cast (Sunday, Central Stage)
Liverpool legends, say no more.
4 – Corinne Bailey Rae (Sunday, Central Stage)
Soulful, vulnerable and very very real.
5 – Slick Rick (Sunday, Palm House)
A true Hip-Hop legend in the Palm House for No Sleep on Sunday night.
6 – JP Cooper (Sunday, Central Stage)
This North-West singer-songwriter just goes from strength to strength. And he is going to just keep getting bigger.
7 – So Solid Crew (Friday, Central Stage)
Another throwback to early 2000s culture…I know many an audience member will be singing along to this set.
8 – Damage (Saturday, Palm House)
Ghetto Romance. Full stop ha.
9 – Fuse ODG (Saturday. Central Stage)
Too many bangers. Toooooo many.
10 – Louis Berry (Sunday, Central Stage)
Every time I’ve seen him it’s been electric. I can imagine this will be no different.
