A free outdoor concert is taking place this August bank holiday on Sunday 30th August. The inaugural event called Concert in the Square will be held in Liverpool city centre at Concert Square L1. The new yearly event is the brainchild of Nowhere Records boss, Derek Hazell, who is behind the successful Killing Moon and The State 80’s club nights in the city.
The live music event will run from 12pm to 9pm and includes a DJ and PA set from K- Klass, who are responsible for some of the biggest house tracks ever made including Rhythm Is A Mystery and the Cream self made anthem, Let Me Show You.
Live PA from The Bassheads, Birkenhead brothers Desa and Nick Murphy. The production duo rose to fame in the 1990s with the massive success of their first Deconstruction release, Is There Anybody Out There. Hitting the UK Top 20 Singles Charts with a bullet, they had a string of consecutive Top 40 hits off their debut album C.O.D.E.S.
There’s also a DJ set by Dreamgirl B2B Miss D.
Live music comes from some of the city’s most exciting bands, including cult Liverpool band The Sums. Fronted by legendary singer songwriter Peter ‘Digsy’ Deary, also known for his friendship with Noel Gallagher and famously immortalised by Oasis in the track Digsy’s Dinner from their debut album Definitely Maybe. The Sums have just released their second studio album titled Start at the Finish.
Beatnik Hurricane is ex La’s Barry Sutton’s newest incarnation and he is joined by fellow La’s man Cami.
Joining the party are rebel reggae rockers Western Promise, whose album Fire From The frontline is out now.
With newcomers The Arts, a power pop trio who have recently signed to The Sums label Nowhere Records, indie rock band Roller and Tweeting Jesus, a Liverpool five piece which includes The Farm’s backing singers.
The concert will be compared by Liverpool singer Jamie Deary and some very special guests will announced nearer the time.
