Winner of the Merseyrail Sound Station competition and LIMF Academy graduate, Astles joins the LIMF 2018 line-up.
He’s made his mark at Liverpool International Music Festival through the LIMF Academy and playing through the torrential Friday night rain at last years festival and now Astles cannot wait to return to play the ItsLiverpool Next Gen stage on Saturday 21st July 2018 at Sefton Park to kick off two days of incredible live music.
