In celebration of the World Cup, international music and naturally, legendary Brazilian midfielder and socio politcal activitst Socrates, Liverpool's Constellations will be hosting a one day festival this summer.
Taking place on Saturday 30th June, Disco Socrates will explore music from all cultures, with live performances from representatives of Nigeria, France, Egypt, Iran and plenty more, while live screenings of both the last 16 games taking place that day are also set feature.
As well as this, a discussion presented by Africa Oyé in partnership with Bido Lito! entitled 'Can Music Change The World?' will delve into football's power to bring social change across the world while a feature length documentary called 'They Will Have to Kill Us First' will educate viewers on musicians in Mali who had to contend with a music ban in their country.
