Here’s what to expect:
The Liverpool Psychedelic Society has once again organised a line-up of acoustic performers who, this year, will bring live entertainment to Hobo Kiosk throughout the day.
Texas Bob (4pm)
Ivan Thunders (6pm)
Pete & The Welcome Addition (7pm)
Torture and the Desert Spiders (8pm)
Blue Eyed Crows (9pm)
Where: Hobo Kiosk, from 4pm
Coffee and Turntables DJs will bring music to the streets of the Baltic Triangle – taking over the 92 Degrees Cafe on Jamaica Street – outdoors, from 10am to 5pm, bringing a street party vibe to the Baltic Triangle! Where: 92 Degrees on Jamaica St, from 10am-5pm
The festival will include the now traditional Baltic Record Fair, as usual set inside the 92 Degrees cafe on Jamiaca St., while DJs play outside. Don’t miss the opportunity to find some real gems! Where: 92 Degrees on Jamaica St, from 10am-5pm
This year, Balticfest will feature a special edition of the popular Coffee and Turntables’ open decks DJ event – the B-Side Party at Hobo Kiosk. Throughout the day, from 3pm-10pm, everyone is invited to pop down to Hobo and get their vinyl records played at the pub’s vintage record player – but only the B-Side! Where: Hobo Kiosk, from 3pm
Once again, as part of Balticfest, we’ll have an art exhibition, showcasing local talent. The exhibition will take place at The Shed in the Baltic Creative building, same address as the 92 Degrees cafe, where we’ll have the record fair and DJs outside. Where: 92 Degrees Cafe (The Shed) on Jamaica St, from 10am-5pm
PICNIC & OPEN MIC
Another new addition to this year’s Balticfest is our effort to bring the Baltic Green back to life. This is one of the rare green spaces in the centre of Liverpool, and we’re encouraging people to help cleaning it up a bit, and use it for a community picnic during the festival.
We’ll also have the Syd Barrett Open Mic “stage” there from 12pm-4pm. Make music, have fun, be part of our community! Where: Baltic Green, from 12pm-4pm
