You’ve always known that Birkenhead is the centre of the musical universe right? Well, coming this August bank holiday weekend (Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th August) FUTURE YARD FESTIVAL is the next step on Birkenhead’s new-music journey. The festival will present innovative and internationally significant work from exceptional national, international and local artists, all showcased in a collection of Birkenhead’s iconic spaces.
Acts confirmed include ANNA CALVI, BILL RYDER-JONES, STELLA DONELLY and NILÜFER YANYA along with impressive hometown heroes BILL NICKSON, EYESORE & THE JINX, BEIJA FLO and more. Pulling from Wirral’s great musical traditions, as well as Birkenhead’s position as the Mersey’s shipbuilding powerhouse, this event is the chance to develop a new, forward-thinking creative culture for a town which has music in its DNA.
Weekend tickets are priced at just £40, and go on sale at 11am on Friday 19th April. Sign up for advanced ticket notification and further line-up details at futureyard.org
