Liverpool International Music Festival cancelled for 2020

Liverpool International Music Festival cancelled for 2020

by Culture Liverpool

It is with great sadness that Liverpool International Music Festival 2020 has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus epidemic. The LIMF team have released a short official statement below:


We’re sorry to announce that the Liverpool International Music Festival will not take place this year.

This has been a difficult decision for the LIMF team, but the uncertainties around the global health crisis means we simply can’t continue to plan, or stage, an event of this scale.

We very much hope the situation has improved by July, but as LIMF takes many months to organise, it’s impossible to produce the high-quality festival we know and love in these timescales.  

We know this will be really disappointing decision not only for LIMF fans, but also for the wider music industry in Liverpool and beyond. LIMF is one of the city’s flagship events and each year has a positive impact on both established and up and coming artists, as well as local businesses and youth and community organisations to name a few.

Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe everyone.

The LIMF Team


Whilst we are sure many loyal fans and newcomers alike will be saddened by the above information, the good news is that we are showcasing a number of virtual gigs and new collaborations from our LIMF Academy artists via our dedicated Connecting Our Communities microsite.

Connecting Our Communities has been set up by Liverpool City Council’s communications team, with support from Marketing Liverpool and Culture Liverpool.
