Artists, presenters and sporting legends including Rebecca Ferguson, Heather Small, John Barnes and Peter Reid are set to join Mayors Steve Rotheram and Andy Burnham for their charity ‘DJ Battle’ in Liverpool next month. This follows their epic encounter last year in Manchester when both claimed victory.

The pair will be taking to the decks again on Friday 2 February 2024 at Camp and Furnace, as the Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester go head-to-head in a good-natured music battle, all for a worthy cause, with proceeding going to local homeless charities.

Ticketholders will be treated to the musical stylings of singers Rebecca Ferguson and Peter Hooton alongside LFC and England Rapper John Barnes for the home side – and former Corrie actress Sally Lindsay, M-People’s Heather Small, and BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Nihal Arthanayake for Greater Manchester, amongst others yet to be announced.

The charity event will be somewhat of a round three re-match for the pair, with their first clash taking place online during the pandemic and a follow-up in person event in Manchester last December, which raised over £25,000 and (incredibly) won ‘Leading Live Event of the Year’ at the 2023 This is Manchester Awards.

Proceeds from the night will be distributed between the Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester charities, with all funds supporting initiatives to tackle homelessness and end the need for rough sleeping. In the Liverpool City Region, proceeds will be directed to homeless charities across the area through Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside. In Greater Manchester, the money will support A Bed Every Night, Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity’s flagship ongoing programme to provide emergency wrap-around support to those rough sleeping, offering guaranteed food and shelter.

Event Date: Friday 2nd February 2024
