River Festival 2019

River Festival 2019

The River Festival is back!

Each year Liverpool plays host to an incredible set of installations, acts, ships and activities to welcome the dawn of summer (we hope!) and Liverpool Irish Festival are stoked to be involved once again. This year, vsitors will see enormous sea urchins, ship wrecks and large scale artworks as well as music and dance, the Bordeaux Wine Festival and street art.

We will present a number of different acts across different stages, involving shanty singers, the George Ferguson Dance School, Irish band The Druids and many more besides. See below for a full Liverpool Irish Festival act list and locations and here for all their biographies.

All Liverpool Irish Festival acts will be free to watch at either the Ship’s Stage (located near the International Slavery Museum; look for the tall ship La Malouine), by the big red funnels on Salthouse Quay or outside the Martin Luther King (MLK) Jnr Building, as indicated. Do come and find us!
