ALL -DAYER ON JAMAICA STREET, BALTIC TRIANGLE
After the successful launch of BALTICFEST last year, here comes BALTICFEST 2, the only FREE music & arts festival in the Baltic Triangle, Liverpool.
This year, BALTICFEST will be held as an All-Dayer event taking over different venues on Jamaica Street, the heart of the Baltic Triangle, for twelve hours packed with great music, art, music and good vibes, from 10am to 10pm! Here’s what to expect:
The Liverpool Psychedelic Society has once again organised a line-up of acoustic performers who, this year, will bring live entertainment to Hobo Kiosk throughout the day.
Coffee and Turntables DJs will bring music to the streets of the Baltic Triangle – taking over the 92 Degrees Cafe on Jamaica Street – outdoors, from 10am to 5pm, bringing a street party vibe to the Baltic Triangle!
The festival will include the now traditional Baltic Record Fair, as usual set inside the 92 Degrees cafe on Jamiaca St., while DJs play outside. Don’t miss the opportunity to find some real gems!
This year, Balticfest will feature a special edition of the popular Coffee and Turntables’ open decks DJ event – the B-Side Party at Hobo Kiosk. Throughout the day, from 3pm-10pm, everyone is invited to pop down to Hobo and get their vinyl records played at the pub’s vintage record player – but only the B-Side!
Once again, as part of Balticfest, we’ll have an art exhibition, showcasing local talent. The exhibition will take place at The Shed in the Baltic Creative building, same address as the 92 Degrees cafe, where we’ll have the record fair and DJs outside.
PICNIC & OPEN MIC
Another new addition to this year’s Balticfest is our effort to bring the Baltic Green back to life. This is one of the rare green spaces in the centre of Liverpool, and we’re encouraging people to help cleaning it up a bit, and use it for a community picnic during the festival. We’ll also have the Syd Barrett Open Mic “stage” there from 12pm-4pm. Make music, have fun, be part of our community!
WHY THE BALTIC?
Of course, Balticfest couldn’t happen anywhere else but in the Baltic Triangle. Find out more about why the creative hub in Liverpool is the chosen home for our festival!
