• Pier Head Village

Programme announced for this summer’s Pier Head Village festival

The full programme for this year’s Pier Head Village festival has been unveiled.

The three-month waterfront extravaganza, which gets underway on 30 June, will feature a combination of music, art, culture and shops.

This year’s festival also includes a new partnership with Liverpool Sound City which will bring acoustic music to the south side of the village with the Sound City Bar & Garden.

Alongside the Sound City Bar is The Artisan Village with over 30 independent market-stalls featuring locally-sourced farm produce and souvenirs from independent artisans including Tilly’s Home Made Fudge and Driftwood.

The Artisan Village will compliment The Village Food Court with The Great British Cheese Company, Crosby Coffee and the award-winning Bold Street Sweets.

Meanwhile to the north of the village, dance music fans can look forward to the Balearic Sunset Sessions at the Village Beach Club.

Martin O’Shea, creator of the Pier Head Village, says: “Bringing people together, entertaining them and giving them a reason to spend many happy hours on the Pier Head enjoying the summer is our goal for this year.

“With the partnership with Liverpool Sound City and wonderful stakeholders such as Liverpool Art Fair, Sunset Sessions, Liverpool City Council, The Cavern Club, Field Vision and all of the artisan traders, we have created an attraction that is fitting for our wonderful city, at arguably the most exciting time in its history.

“It has never been more popular or been given more respect than right now. The Pier Head Village will reflect everything we love about our city.”
