De La Soul, Nao, Yxng Bane, Grace Carter and Sigma are among the new names confirmed.

“Amidst a stellar set of music events in Liverpool this year, I’m glad that again LIMF is able to do what it does best as it presents an accessible, inclusive and musically diverse line up that continues to be a platform for great performers and performances and truly reflects what’s happening here in Liverpool,” says Yaw Owusu, LIMF Music Curator.

“Seven years in, it really feels like LIMF is hitting its stride and continually pushing the agenda. I look forward to seeing many people from across the city, the country and further afield, come together to enjoy great music in Sefton Park at LIMF 2019.”
