BILLED as the ‘UK’s ultimate pop music festival’, Fusion 2016 comes to Liverpool’s Otterspool Promenade early in September. US superstar Jason Derulo will headline the Saturday night while Britain’s own pop sensation Olly Murs takes the honour on the Sunday. Derulo will be joined by Tinie Tempah, Labrinth, Craig David, Sigma as well as newcomers Anne-Marie, Blonde and Imani Williams. The Sunday line-up includes The Vamps, Busted, Ella Henderson, Nathan Sykes, Becky Hill and The Tide. Local acts including Mic Lowry, Louis Berry and DJ Anton Powers will also be performing across the weekend. Now in its fourth year, this is the first time the festival has come to Liverpool – a move which coincides with the city being declared a UNESCO City of Music. Liverpool’s Culture Director, Claire McColgan said: “We’re delighted that Fusion Festival is heading to Liverpool and it’s a real coup that this city is going to host yet another major music event this year which will bring with it a creative and economic boost to the area. “We’re massively proud of the fact that commercial operators with the calibre of Fusion are looking at Liverpool to stage their events – it’s in line with our UNESCO City of Music status and reinforces the fact that we place music at the heart of Liverpool’s contemporary culture.” Fusion takes place at Otterspool Promenade on 3 & 4 September. Ticket prices range from £48.50 for a day ticket to £275 for a VIP weekend pass with various options in between including a £150 family day ticket.
