Final additions for Liverpool Music Week

Sense of Sound Singers, She Drew The Gun, Shogun and more confirmed

With just two weeks to go Liverpool Music Week 2017 have announced a huge list of additional names to this year’s festival line up, starting on Thursday 26th October at the opening party headlined by Chic feat. Nile Rodgers at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.

As always, at its core LMW is about reflecting and championing the best of Liverpool’s culturally diverse and historically rich music scene, and the 2017 festival line up is bursting with choice for those in search of something different.

Newly confirmed to open this year’s festival before Chic’s appearance with a very special Disco Classic covers set are the 8-strong Sense of Sound Singers choir under the musical direction of Jennifer John, in what is set to be a very special way to open one of the biggest shows of the year, alongside Liverpool Disco Festival DJs, who will soundtrack the opening night with Chic at Liverpool Echo Arena.

The biggest reveal of the latest announcement is the full line-up for the unmissable LMW Closing Party that takes place on 4th November across the Invisible Wind Factory & Northshore Troubadour venues, featuring 4 stages and a supporting programme curated by the Merseyside blog to help celebrate their milestone anniversary year.

Joining headliners Everything Everything, AJ Tracey, Perfume Genius And Zola Jesus are Ali Horn, Danye, Deja Vega, Fuss, Godonmyright, Jo Mary, L100 Cypher, Peaness, Pink Kink, Rico Don, Rongorongo, She Drew The Gun, Shogun, Spilt, SPQR, Strange Collective, Sudebrown, Tea Street Band, The Bohos , Trudy And The Romance, Veyu and Violet Youth.

Elsewhere across the festival, Deep Hedonia & God Unknown present Blanck Mass with Bonnacons Of Doom and Dialect footing the bill, whilst Stealing Sheep and Makeness join Jungle.

TVME and AGP will be warming up the room for Childhood, with Positive Vibrations bringing Dub Defender DJ’s to the Dawn Penn show, God Colony, Alec Tronik and Glitterf*Ck are all added to the white hot Princess Nokia ticket, and local favourites Loved Ones and Her’s join Gengahr.

As ever, the always popular DIY ‘Breaking Out’ series of shows returns this year to the hallowed vaults of Heebie Jeebie's. Showcasing some of the best rising international talent with the new breed of Liverpool’s musical cream of the crop, a whole host of new names have just been added across the dates Pizzagirl, Luna, Wildfires, The Fernweh, Spinn, Emilio Pinchi, Sugarmen, Gintis, Disastronauts,  St Jude The Obscure, Mary Miller, Bill Nickson, Colour, Marmalade, Black Pulp, Shy Billy, Mincemeat, Wild Fruit Art Collective, Queen Zee & The Sasstones, Salt The Snail, Forever In Debt and Dead Houses.

LMW17 will run from Thursday 26th October to Saturday 4th November 2017 and will once again be utilising Liverpool’s ever-growing arsenal of venues, with the Invisible Wind Factory hosting two of the biggest shows this year, as well as some of its lesser-known hidden gems and secret live spaces, proving beyond a doubt that there’s something special happening on the banks of the River Mersey, and bringing national attention to this bustling hub of creativity.
