Prepare to dance the night away as the iconic Jacksons take centre stage at the highly anticipated Liverpool Celebrates this August Bank Holiday weekend.

Making their long-awaited return to Liverpool, The Jacksons, featuring brothers Jackie, Tito, and Marlon Jackson, will headline the festival on Saturday, 24 August, with a performance that is sure to electrify the crowd.

Backed by a dynamic 10-piece live band, The Jacksons will deliver a show-stopping set filled with their greatest hits, including classics like “Blame It On The Boogie,” “I Want You Back,” “ABC,” and “Can You Feel It.”

From infectious rhythms to soulful melodies, The Jacksons will bring their signature style and undeniable energy to the Pier Head venue for a night of music and celebration.

Presented by Liverpool Celebrates in partnership with The Mathew Street Festival team, this musical extravaganza promises an unforgettable experience for fans of all ages.

In addition to The Jacksons, the Mathew Street Festival celebration will feature a lineup of acclaimed artists and emerging local talent, ensuring a diverse and vibrant experience for festival-goers.

From the legendary Holly Johnson of Frankie Goes to Hollywood to the chart-topping Lightning Seeds, Space, China Crisis, and N-Trance, there will be something for everyone to enjoy throughout the weekend.

Beyond the headline acts, festival-goers can look forward to immersive experiences curated by Jonny Bongo’s Festival Experience at the Dock.

As part of the festival celebrations, Sunday’s lineup pays homage to music history with captivating tribute acts honouring icons like Abba, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, and The Doors.

And on Bank Holiday Monday, the Cavern Takeover will feature electrifying tributes to Adele, The Who, Elton John, Oasis, The Rolling Stones, and Dios Salve A La Reina – a renowned Queen tribute act flown in from Argentina.

Steven Fletcher at Liverpool Celebrates said:

“We are proud to announce a lineup which not only pays tribute to The Mathew Street Festival but also welcomes iconic, international groups such as The Jacksons back to Liverpool as well as a brilliant blend of local talent. 

“The Jacksons are returning to the city for the first time in almost 50 years while Dios Salve A La Reina were show-stoppers at the last Mathew Street Festival in 2013.

“There will also be opportunities for emerging artists to perform at the festival, and we will be hosting opportunities for performers to earn the chance to take to the main stage across the weekend.”

Daniel Sanders of Liverpool Celebrates added:

“We hope we have put together a lineup music lovers from the city and beyond can be proud of and we are so excited to welcome people into Liverpool for this celebration.

“Liverpool Celebrates are delighted by the reaction of both the public and venues across the city since we announced the tribute to the Mathew Street Festival and we believe this lineup will deliver a bumper August Bank Holiday weekend of fun, music and memories to Liverpool City Centre.”
