The Feis celebrates Liverpool and its’ moniker as “Dublin’s backyard” with its unique Irish heritage with over 75% of Liverpool’s population being of Irish descent. For the Feis’ return Vince Power says, “I’m delighted to announce the Liverpool Feis on the Pier on Saturday 6th July. We have a limited amount of early bird tickets available which, after last year, we expect to sell out very quickly. We once again have a great lineup, which will be announced very soon. As with last year, The Feis will be host to 3 stages featuring both contemporary and traditional Irish acts. I look forward to seeing you all again.”

Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for culture, tourism and events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “We are delighted to welcome The Feis back to the city. Last year’s event was an incredible day of live music which highlighted the longstanding close relationship between Liverpool and Ireland. It is a great time for the city musically with a number of exciting announcements to be made over the coming months which will further cement our worldwide reputation as a UNESCO City of Music.”
