The historic Mathew Street festival is set to make a return to Liverpool this summer.

The original festival had to be moved to Sefton Park 10 years ago, which was believed to be a better location for the festival with more space for a higher capacity.

At the time of the original festival there were several noise complaints from people and businesses in the area.

The new festival will be held at the Pier Head in Liverpool. This location has been chosen as it hosted part of Eurovision last summer and was a very successful location for the event.

The festival will be strictly for over-18s and will be for ticket holders only over the August bank holiday weekend.

MerseyNewsLive spoke to Mike from Jurgen’s Bier Haus, who said: “The festival used to be a good place to go and have a drink with your mates, I’m happy it’s returning”.

The festival brings people from across the world to the famous Liverpool Street. The stage at the Pier Head will host acts every day, each with a different theme.

One day the stage will be hosted by the legendary Cavern Club with acts who regularly perform at the club.

Additional acts will include international tribute acts, local legends and regular buskers who you will see on the streets of Liverpool most days.

  • Tickets will be available soon to purchase at around £130 per person.
