HOPE & GLORY is a new 12,500 capacity boutique festival in the heart of Liverpool, with the stunning Victorian backdrop of the World Museum, City Library and St.George's Hall and St.John’s Gardens.
Try to imagine your favourite bands, combined with a decadent Victorian carnival, and a heavy dose of outrageous sideshows, and you’ll begin to get a picture of what HOPE & GLORY festival is.
A wonderful boutique festival and all within a few hundred yards walk of the main Lime Street train station. Stylish yet subversive - think Charles Darwin meets Tim Burton.
The Hacienda Classical with special guests Shaun Ryder and Bez from The Happy Mondays (plus more guests to be announced), The Fratellis, former Keane frontman Tom Chaplin and Reverend And The Makers who will all play our THE GREAT EXHIBITION stage.
