Liverpool Disco Festival’s sold out 2nd Birthday celebration in October saw another multi-venue takeover and drew crowds from all over the country, Europe and further afield, road-blocking the Baltic Triangle with a weekend that celebrated the legacy of underground dance music inspired by Chicago and New York City.

Thousands of feet stomped in delight as legendary Stateside DJs were joined by Europe’s celebrated disco diggers, and jaws dropped at the spectacular production and incredible atmosphere only this party brings. Resident Advisor’s observation that it is the ‘crowd’s effervescent attitude that makes the event special’ has not gone unnoticed, as the festival continues to draw the most beautiful souls to the city. The uniting heartbeat of the disco message is fully alive at this spectacular event – if it’s your first time to the dance, you’re in for the time of your life. The city-wide explosion of music, art and culture over the last five years has nourished a fertile ground of innovation, integration and celebration – and Liverpool Disco Festival is one such expression of this Scouse spirit that continues to grow from strength to strength.
