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."
JLS tour dates
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall became Little Mix in 2011. It seems almost a distant memory now that these girls won The X-Factor (and were the first ever group to do so, rather than a solo singer).
They have had four UK No.1 singles and four platinum albums, from the debut 'DNA' to 'Glory Days' and were presented with a plaque from their label in 2017 for total worldwide sales of 30 million. This makes them officially the biggest girl band since the Spice Girls. Aside from sales, they have also gained recognition, with a string of awards from MTV Europe, Choice, Glamour and 'Shout Out To My Ex' received a Brit for 'Best British Single'.
Little Mix tour dates
Eliza is the back-to-basics singer-songwriter of soulful pop music whose antics made a stark impression on the UK music scene when she first came to attention. 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.

Union J originally consisting of members Jaymi, JJ, Josh & George were formed in 2012 on the TV phenomenon that is the X-Factor. After finishing up as semi finalists the 4 boys went on to have chart success with 4 top 10 UK Official Chart singles and their first album selling over 100,000 copies hitting the charts at #6 in 2013. In 2014 the boys released their most successful single to date ‘You Got It All’ which hit the charts at #2 sending the boys on a whirlwind sold out tour across the UK selling over 40,000 tickets!
In 2016 George Shelley and the band partied ways with the band officially announcing in The Sun the newest member, former Stereo Kicks member Casey Johnson. Expect to hear all your favourites plus new music from this new four piece as they go on to the next chapter of Union J.
Union J tour dates
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.
