Sigma to headline LIMF in July

Sigma and The Wombats will headline Liverpool International Music Festival in July.

The dance duo - who are responsible for hits such as 'Nobody To Love' and 'Changing' - are confirmed to headline the LIMF Summer Jam 2016 bill on the Saturday evening and the 'Lets Dance to Joy Division' hitmakers will top Sunday's line-up at Europe's biggest free music festival, which is spread over three days - from July 21 to 24 in the city's Sefton Park.

London-born songstress Lianne La Havas, Kwabs, Netsky, Ms Dynamite, Maverick Sabre and Liverpool's Philharmonic Orchestra will also whet the appetite of music lovers at the festival's fourth outing.

As well as the Summer Jam bill, organisers have commissioned five off-shoot ticketed events which will celebrate music that has "redefined" popular culture and which will be held at different venues around the city.

They include a curated live show by BBC 6 Music's Gilles Peterson called 'From The Soul'; a celebration of Liverpool's counter-culture over the last 40 years with '76-16: From Eric's To Evol'; and 'House Nation' where renowned Liverpool-based DJ and Producer Yousef will explore what defines house music in four international cities.

Tickets for these cost from £10 for early-bird purchase and are available online at LIMF.

LIMF Curator, Yaw Owusu commented: "Year four is all about us shining a light on re-defining musical moments and movements... I hope that music lovers from anywhere and everywhere, of all ages and backgrounds, revel in a number of special experiences at LIMF 2016."
