EVOL‘s Steve ‘Revo‘ Miller, said: ‘I’m very happy to be unleashing the FestEVOL line up. It’s a step up from last year; it’s more varied across the two days with the very best acts from Merseyside mixed with some up and coming guest acts that have impressed me on my travels around the country.
‘FestEVOL encapsulates what’s happening now at grassroots level and just goes to show how strong the scene is in Liverpool that all these bands can come together and play in August to make two great all day parties, we’re very lucky.‘
