Unique Ukraine and Scouse supergroup to launch Liverpool’s Eurovision party
Eurovision - EuroFestival

An iconic synth music legend, a festival favourite and a psychedelic pop queen are the latest artists to be added to Liverpool’s incredible EuroFestival line-up.

OMD’s Andy McCluskey will join Liverpool indie rockers Red Rum Club and psychedelic pop queen Jane Weaver as they become members of Welcome To Eurotopia, – a supergroup made up of Liverpool musicians and Ukrainian artists – who will take to the stage at 9:30pm on the Pier Head on 5 May in an avant-pop spectacle. The concert will follow a memorable Eurovision Village opening performance from 2022 Eurovision winners, Kalush Orchestra.

The band is led by city art scene musicians Natalie McCool and Stealing Sheep and will lead an incredible line-up of musicians to perform a mind-blowing mix of music with eye-popping Euro-style costume and glamour. Other Liverpool musicians performing include She Drew The Gun’s Lou Roach, vocal harmony groupMic Lowry, Mickey Callisto, PODGE, Kelly Shimeya and Dialect. 

They will join forces with Ukrainian artists Helleroid, Krapka;KOMA and Iryna Muha in what is set to be an unmissable performance and one that will surely go down as a landmark moment in Liverpool’s Eurovision host city offer. The concert in the Eurovision Village will be free to attend.


Welcome to Eurotopia is just one of 24 EuroFestival commissions which will take place across the city from 1-14 May. 

The incredible EuroFestival has been made possible thanks to support from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, as well as The British Council, Spirit of 2012 and Arts Council England. The content partners are The Ukrainian Institute, the BBC, Liverpool ONE, The Liverpool BID and Royal Liverpool Albert Dock. 

Director of Culture Liverpool, Claire McColgan CBE, said:

“EuroFestival just keeps on giving more as we get closer to the Eurovision takeover! When we announced the programme a couple of weeks ago, we had a fantastic response and it’s fair to say people were astounded at what we were planning to deliver across two weeks.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the creativity of the artists involved and despite the pace at which they’re working, the calibre of the commissions is exceptionally high. I’m delighted to see that so many of the projects are inspired by our rich music heritage, and to have some of the best musicians from the city region on stage with incredible Ukrainian talent is going to be unmissable in our host city journey.”
