Liverpool Disco Festival goes big for 10th edition  

LIVERPOOL Disco Festival will celebrate its 10th edition this August with a huge day and night event at CONTENT.

It takes place on Saturday August 19th at CONTENT. Across the day and night, celebrated live performers and disco diggers will unite in a vibrant celebration. 

Chicago House Legends Ten City makes their debut with a full band and will be performing their stand-out tracks including That’s The Way Love Is, My Piece Of Heaven, Right Back To You, Whatever Makes You Happy and Devotion. Byron Stingily, an integral part of Ten City, will also be performing his solo hits Make Me Feel Mighty Real and Get Up Everybody. The true voice of Soulful House Kenny Bobien (Father/Brighter Day) will be joining Ten City and Byron on stage for what will be an unmissable show of quintessential house music artists.

NYC disco legends and LDF favourites Odyssey return to Liverpool Disco Festival with a full band to perform their hits Going Back To My Roots, Inside Out, Sex in The City series Native New Yorker plus classics from Chic, Sister Sledge and more.

The bands are joined at CONTENT by John Morales of 1970s NYC Studio 54 fame who has been a resident for LDF since its inception in 2016 and bids farewell to his faithful crowd as part of a worldwide retirement tour.  In addition, Glitterbox and Defected’s Kirollus and Marcel Vogel are supported by Rahaan, Malfalda B2B Rebecca Vasmant, Sy Sez, Morgan and Dharma Collective.

As part of the weekend’s extended festivities, LDF host their traditional ‘Welcome To The Disco Session’ on Friday 18th August and Sunday ‘Sign Off’ Session on 20th August respectively at the wonderful surroundings of The Botanical Garden. Main event ticket holders for Saturday’s event at CONTENT gain exclusive complimentary entry for Friday and Sunday’s parties.  

James Morgan, Liverpool Disco Festival’s founder, says: “It’s been a rollercoaster ride since hosting my first party in my adopted city of Liverpool way back on a Sunday night in 2007 with Louie Vega in the basement of the Magnet. The venue and experience produced a drive in me to extend and push the soulful sound of disco and house throughout the city and further afield. Our bi-annual main Disco Festival events are the cumulation of that and it’s clear to see that it brings a lot of people a huge amount of joy as they dance, hug, smile and connect positively via the unifying message which Disco & House music undoubtably bring in abundance.”

Liverpool Disco Festival was formed in many late night sessions at The Magnet as Hustle, where James nurtured a sound which had until then never really taken hold in Liverpool or at that juncture in a festival capacity elsewhere. Since inception successive years have drawn in ever more bigger and diverse crowds and created a uniquely fun and friendly party which continues to chart its own course.

The tenth edition promises to be the best Liverpool Disco Festival to date.
