We are pleased to announce Kasabian as headliners for this year’s Liverpool Music Week festival.
Indie rockers Kasabian, are undoubtedly one of the UK’s biggest rock bands, a band that are currently celebrating chart success for their album 'West Rider Pauper Lunatic Asylum' which sat at No.1 in the Album charts for 2 weeks running, and follows a legendary sell out show at Liverpool Uni last week. Kasabian will be performing at the Echo Arena on Monday 16th November.
LMW Director James Barton said: “Liverpool Music Week has gone from strength to strength over the last 7 years and attracted some of the UK’s biggest acts, this year we’ve secured Kasabian our biggest headliner to date, attracting a band of this stature proves just how far the festival has come.”
Another act confirmed to perform at Liverpool Music Week 2009 is The Enemy. The Coventry trio already have a number 1 selling album under their belt and were the band of choice to support Oasis on their stadium tour. The Enemy will be performing on Sunday 8th November at Liverpool University.
Kicking off this years festival will be Reverend And The Makers, making their LMW debut, the band will be performing at Nation on Saturday 7th November. Reverend And The Makers have been tipped for huge success having supported a number of high profile bands including Arctic Monkeys and the Rolling Stones.
LMW Founder & Director Mike Deane said: “It was always going to be a difficult task to better the amazing year we had in ’08, and we’ve worked extremely hard since the start of the year to ensure the festival is once again bigger and better. This is just the first of several big announcements for Liverpool Music Week 2009”.
Liverpool Music Week began in 2003 and over the last 7 years has gone onto become a nationally recognised event and highlight of the music calendar. Resulting in Liverpool Music Week becoming the UK’s biggest indoor winter music festival, a musical showcase that features big name acts and gives a performance platform for fresh emerging talent, a number of which have gone on to reach nationwide success.
Last years event attracted a record breaking 55,000 people to the city and is a combination of free and ticketed shows. 2008 hosted over 80 events, across 26 venues, featuring over 300 live acts, and the winning format returns in 2009
