X & Y Festival

WITH many of the eager gig goers somewhat quietened by the end of Glastonbury, Liverpool's X & Y Festival most definitely fills that omnipresent void between musical extravaganzas.

Starting life back in 2012, the festival has grown extensively - although now remaining in the same venue, the show has attracted many artists currently under-the-radar for this years shenanigans including; The Family Rain, Half Moon Run and Catfish and The Bottlemen.

If this isn't enough - the festival boasts the cream of the crop from Merseyside, making sure artists such as; Natalie McCool, Broken Men and Run Tiger Run have their chance to flaunt to the other artists what Liverpool can really pull out the bag.

We've heard so much from the likes of McCool, with her undoubted track record and sheer admiration from the local critics - not to mention her radiantly exquisite stage vibrations she exhumes so effortlessly. Run Tiger Run have also boasted this sudden maturity and utmost brilliance through new tracks such as 'Teeth', turning heads instantly with the gracious pitter-patter of harmonium. Then we have Broken Men, looking so lean and mean on the outside but producing an alluring sound almost untouched in the local musical roundabout.

The importance of events such as X & Y are crucial to the foundations of the locality and the reach we have as an effective body to do our duty as avid music lovers grows and grows with each opportunity such as this. This year is set to be a good'un - we're not even talking 2015 yet.

Tickets are £20 and are available from seetickets.com
