The Feis Liverpool
A brand new annual event celebrating the best of Irish culture is coming to the city, bringing with it some of the biggest names in contemporary and traditional Irish music.
The Feis (pronounced ‘fesh’) will be a multi-stage event taking place on the Liverpool Waterfront, and is being organised by Vince Power and Jona Cox. Vince founded the famous Fleadh and Feis Festivals which ran for 21 years in London, Glasgow, New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco.
Featuring some of the biggest names in Irish music, both contemporary and traditional, The Feis Liverpool will be the biggest celebration of Irish culture the city has seen.
Taking place on Liverpool’s World Heritage Waterfront on Saturday 7 July, Van Morrison
will headline the festival. Also on the line-up are Chieftains, Imelda May, The Hothouse
Flowers, Foy Vance, The Coronas, Aslan, Finbar Furey, Hudson Taylor, The Stunning,
Nathan Carter, Damien Dempsey, Dublin Legends (The Dubliners), Sharon Shannon, Mary Coughlan, Jack L & Mundy and the legendary Shane McGowan, who will be headlining the Finale Main Stage.
The Feis forms part of the Liverpool 2018 events programme which marks the tenth
anniversary of European Capital of Culture, and will celebrate Liverpool’s unique Irish
heritage. Often referred to as the ‘real capital of Ireland’ and ‘Dublin’s backyard’, over 75% of Liverpool’s population is of Irish descent.
The Feis is being organised by music promoter Vince Power, the founder of the famous
Mean Fiddler who was behind festivals such as Glastonbury, Leeds/ Reading, Tribal
Gathering, Homelands, the Hop Farm; as well as the world famous Fleadh Festival.
Power’s Fleadh/Feis festivals ran for over fifteen years in London, Glasgow, New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco with the most recent by Bob Dylan.
