LIVERPOOL (CelebrityAccess) — The Kings of Leon and Franz Ferdinand have been announced as headliners for the debut of Liverpool’s newest live music festival, Fusion Presents.
Organized by the team behind the Fusion Festival, Fusion Presents is scheduled for August 30th, ahead of the main event which takes place the following two days at Sefton Park in Liverpool.
“Liverpool has always been a city with strong music heritage and we’ve wanted to launch a new event for the last couple of years,” Event director Damien Sanders told the Evening Standard.
“The biggest challenge has been finding the right artist for the job. We’re over the moon that we were able to secure one of the world’s most successful rock bands to launch Fusion Presents and we cannot wait to see them perform in our new home, Sefton Park,” he added.
Other artists on the lineup for 2019 include Echo & The Bunnymen, Circa Waves, and Sam Fender, with additional artists TBA.
