LIMF 2020 has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak

This years Liverpool International Music Festival has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.


LIMF 2020 was due to take place in Sefton Park on Sunday 19th September with an announcement due on who was headlining the annual festival. It has been confirmed today that the event will now no longer be taking place because of the coronavirus outbreak.

 

A statement from LIMF reads: “We’re sorry to announce that the Liverpool International Music Festival will not take place this year. This has been a difficult decision for the LIMF team, but the uncertainties around the global health crisis means we simply can’t continue to plan, or stage, an event of this scale.”

“We very much hope the situation has improved by July, but as LIMF takes many months to organise, it’s impossible to produce the high-quality festival we know and love in these timescales.

The statement continues: “We know this will be really disappointing decision not only for LIMF fans, but also for the wider music industry in Liverpool and beyond. LIMF is one of the city’s flagship events and each year has a positive impact on both established and up and coming artists, as well as local businesses and youth and community organisations to name a few.”
