Update: Liverpool Calling 2016 cancelled



Liverpool Calling have announced the second wave of acts for their summer Camp & Furnace bash, Getintothis’ Jake Marley has all the details.


The team behind Liverpool Calling 2016 have regrettably confirmed the festival is to be cancelled for this year, citing “reasons beyond [their] control” as responsible for the last-minute pull.

A show involving Peaness and Psycho Comedy will go ahead at Maguire’s Pizza Bar on Thursday, June 23, with organisers promising to make the gig free entry for all attending.

Following on from last month’s announcement that this year’s festival will be co-headlined by Spector and Coasts, Liverpool Calling have today unveiled their second wave of artists, spearheaded by Findlay and Yak.

Findlay is a firm Liverpool favourite having gigged the city numerous times, including consistent appearances at Liverpool Sound City festival. Her appearance on the main stage at Liverpool Calling is sure to be awash with festival ready anthems such as Greasy Love and Junk Food, as well as a nod towards her debut studio album.

Yak will also join the main stage festivities come July 9, fresh from supporting The Last Shadow Puppets on tour. Frenetic live shows come naturally to the London lads and their blood rushing No EP, released on Jack White’s Third Man Records only affirms their spiky live pull.
