Liverpool Music Week Headlined by Kasabian

With each passing year the Liverpool Music Week festival has been getting better and better. This year they have attracted Indie rock band Kasabian as their headlining act, leaving fans scrambling to get tickets.

Kasabian are currently enjoying elite status as one of the UK’s biggest rock bands. Not that long ago the band had an incredible sell out show at Liverpool Uni. Before that, their ‘West Rider Pauper Lunatic Asylum’ album was No. 1 in the UK charts for a whopping two continuous weeks. With numbers like that, it is easy to see that Kasabian are a very popular choice. Their decision to headline at Liverpool Music Week 2009 is a strong reflection on the popularity of both the festival and the band.

Commenting on the band’s booking, LMW Director James Barton noted: “Liverpool Music Week has gone from strength to strength over the last 7 years and attracted some of the UK’s biggest acts. This year we’ve secured Kasabian – our biggest headliner to date. Attracting a band of this stature proves just how far the festival has come.” Kasabian is set to perform next at the Echo Arena on November 16.

Music fans will be pleased to know that Kasabian will be joined on stage by other popular acts such as The Enemy and Reverend And The Makers. The Enemy has already achieved a number 1 selling album and has supported acts like Oasis in the past. Reverend And The Makers will be making their debut at Liverpool Music Week, but it is not their first time on stage with a high profile band – previously they have supported the Rolling Stones and the Arctic Monkeys.

Since its inception in 2003, Liverpool Music Week has blossomed into the UK’s biggest indoor winter music festival. It has gained a reputation for featuring not only big acts but also fresh emerging talent – much of which has later gone on to enjoy nationwide success. If you want to be one of the 55 000 or more people who make the most of this annual event, you’d best book your tickets now. With more than 80 events, 26 venues and 300 live acts to choose from, you certainly won’t be disappointed!
