Darwin Deez, Sleigh Bells and Los Campensinos! are among the latest acts to be added to the Liverpool Music Week 2010 line-up, which kicks off on 29 October and runs throughout November.
The festival, which will take place over a number of venues around Liverpool, will now also feature performances from Field Music, Egyptian Hip Hop, O Children, Chapel Club and a solo show from The Rascals’ frontman Miles Kane.
All of the acts announced will play for free at new venue MOJO.
Local legends Cast have also been confirmed for this year’s festival, playing the performance space at BBC Radio Merseyside on 11 November.
Details on how to gain entry to this special event will be revealed on the official Liverpool Music Week Facebook page.
Speaking about the latest inclusions, festival director Mike Deane said: “We are delighted at the agenda we have pulled together for 2010. Important headline artists will fly in (out of festival season) from all over the world to play alongside the city’s most important Scousers of today.
“To have Cast and Miles Kane playing the type of shows that are intrinsic to how the festival works, is a perfect example of how we mix it with the music’s hottest new artists such as Darwin Deez, Egyptian Hip Hop & Sleigh Bells. I’m very much looking forward to the free MOJO shows at this year’s festival.”
As previously announced, Leftfield, Efterklang, Chase & Status, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Warpaint, Hadouken!, Beardyman and K’naan are all set to perform ticketed shows this year.
!!! have now been added to the roster of paid-for gigs and they will be the last in the run of shows at The Stanley Theatre, appearing on 31 October.
Passes for all of the individually priced ticketed shows are on sale now.
