A NEW, FREE MUSIC FESTIVAL IN THE HEART OF THE BALTIC TRIANGLE

** UPDATE: MEMORY OF A FREE FESTIVAL – PHOTOS FROM BALTIC FEST (CLICK HERE)**

BalticFest is a new free festival taking place in four venues over three days of the second May bank holiday. We’re bringing you acoustic live acts, all vinyl DJs and interactive art, all in some of our favourite Baltic Triangle cafés.

Coffee and Turntables have hand-picked some of our fave guest DJs to bring you tunes outside in the streets, while the music artists have all been selected by the Liverpool Psychedelic Society. On top of all that there will also be a record fair for you to get some bargains on disc, pop up pizza, a local artisan market and the Liverpool Psych Lab, an immersive and interactive experience with psychedelic projections and lights, musical instruments, dreamachine and photo & art exhibition.

PLEASE NOTE: All DJ & Live Music events will take place outdoors, and public attendance will be limited to the outdoor seating normally provided by the venues involved, i.e. first come, first served – venues might reserve the right to turn attendees away if no more tables are available, so come early! All events will comply with the most up-to-date Health & Safety advice and regulations in place, including social distancing, track & trace, sound levels as ambient backing music etc. For any queries, please contact us.
