Hosted by wonder-venue – Camp and Furnaceand dreamt up by creative monkeys of Liverpool’s wild west, this is Summercampsupersonified! Imagine two glorious days of music, arts and the art of scoffing fine foods, yum. Created as part of Liverpool International Music Festival, the whole shebang really does have something for everyone.

Summercamp 2013 features musical joy from the likes of Mount Kimbie, Delphic, Wave Machines, Martha Wainwright, Ed Harcourt, The Staves, Benjamin Francis, Ghostpoet, Leftwich, Josef Salvat and Marika Hackman (with more TBA!)

For the nocturnals out there, two nights of moonlit revelry have been announced, right now in fact.  Evening fun is to be left in the capable hands of Optimo, Lunar Modular, Ewan Pearson, Nathan Fake and Hotchip’s alter-ego – 2 Bears. This is quite the addition, considering the already stellar line up.

In addition, Liverpool Biennial presents The Experimental Music School – showcasing art, education and wonderment for humans of all ages. There’ll be film screenings with live soundtracks in association with FACT, children’s events in association with Just So Festival, The Kazimier Festival Gardens and afterhours gigs in The Blade Factory.
