Liverpool Music Week 2011 – Acts Announced

It’s that time of year again, well almost. Mike Deane, Liverpool Music Week’s indefatigable head honcho, has coralled a sublime set of acts, and coaxed them to the city’s spaces for a week and a bit of simply great music. This is why we love LMW: you can tell it’s run by someone who gives a damn about the music. Not the money.

Keeping the flame alive, Dean’s curated a really excellent mix of the freshest, most exciting acts – and there’s more to come. He’s even sneaked in a return to the city for the excellent – and Mercury nominated – Ghostpoet.

The annual shindig returns to the city on October 28 and runs to November 13, so yeah, not really a week at all. Which is good.
