Over the course of the weekend, specially commissioned events will take place in various venues across the city.

Last year was amonumental event for us, and we can’t wait to see our ideas for 2016 come to fruition!”
Further details will be announced in the coming weeks, and artists and DJ’s are encouraged to contact Liverpool SoulFest to express their interest.
