Liverpool International Music Festival - Turn Up The Radio: JLS + Little Mix + Eliza Doolittle + Union J + Stooshe + Diana Vickers + A*M*E + The Vamps + Charlie Brown + Tich
Liverpool International Music Festival replaces the Mathew Street Festival which ran in the city for 20 years. Internationally renowned artists will play at multiple free and ticketed events across the city during August and September.
JB, Aston, Marvin and Oritsé reached the final two of the X Factor back in 2008 - the first group ever to get that far on the show. Since then, their success has been nothing short of staggering, with sold-out arena and stadium tours, number one singles and multi-platinum albums. They have also won four MOBO Awards and two 2010 BRIT trophies to date. The group have decided to go their separate ways following their Greatest Hits Tour at the end of 2013, saying: "It has been the most incredible journey over the last 6 years and we have achieved more things than we could have ever dreamed possible."

Little Mix became the first ever girl band to reach the final three of the X Factor in the 2011 TV talent show. The girls originally auditioned for the X Factor as solo performers; under the tutelage of judge and mentor Tulisa Contostavlos they joined forces to become Little Mix, X Factor's first ever victorious group. Having captured the hearts and minds of the nation with their winning chemistry, musical sensibility and breath-taking vocal prowess, the girls shot straight to No.1 with their debut single 'Cannonbal'.

Taking her name from the My Fair Lady character, Eliza is the back-to-basics singer-songwriter of soulful pop music whose antics are making a stark impression on the UK music scene. She's been making music since the age of 10, growing up listening to old Motown, hip-hop and pop music to become the embodiment of the modern-day diva. Scoring top 40 singles in 2010 with 'Skinny Genes' and the no.5 hit 'Pack Up', she returns in 2013 with 'Big When I Was A Little', a reminisce song of music, culture and fads she lived through in her childhood, including the cassette single (which the song is being released on!).
Eliza Doolittle tour dates
Union J were X Factor finalists in 2012. Since their time on the show it has been non-stop for the boys and they have got off to an impressive start. With a top 5 single, almost a million twitter followers, 9 million views on Youtube and a book deal in the bag, it would seem Union J's limits are endless and 2013 is set to be their year.
Union J tour dates
Salt-n-Pepa for 2012? Karis, Courtney and Alex offer an infectiously catchy, very sweary and distinctly British brand of urban pop. An 'X-rated En Vogue" said The Guardian!
Stooshe tour dates
Diana Vickers may not have won X Factor 2008, but she definitely won the hearts of the nation with her quirky style, down to earth personality and original takes on classic pop songs.

Fresh, fierce and fabulous, 17 year old A*M*E hails from South East London and is set to become one of the UK's biggest pop stars.

The Vamps are without a doubt the new band on everyone’s lips. They have been causing a stir everywhere they go, with legions of fans following and pandemonium at every turn. A phenomenal live band with an electrifying set, the teenage four-piece - comprised of singer Bradley Will Simpson, guitarist James McVey, drummer Tristan Evans and bassist Connor Ball - have already picked up a phenomenal following online. Their debut single Can We Dance has clocked up over 10 million YouTube views, and second single Wild Heart has almost 4 million and their channel has already tipped 34.5 million total views.

Charlie Brown is already one of this years ones to watch after storming the charts with his debut single, '‘On My Way'. Hotly tipped by everyone from Kiss to Capital FM and with a loyal, growing fanbase Charlie's graft and determination over the last ten years is starting to bear fruit.
