Liverpool's Matthew Street Festival

The Matthew Street Festival in Liverpool has become a well known highlight of the year bringing together some great musical talents and showcasing the region's love for music.

This year had to be good with Capital of Culture 08 in full flow, and it didn't disappoint. There was a great atmosphere in the city and even the rain stayed away for most of the day, so people could enjoy the free open air music festival.

I was really impressed with the organisation, there were plenty of stewards on hand giving out free information booklets. All the stages were well signposted and easy to find.

We spent most of the day at the main stage by the Museum where we enjoyed Fake That, Police Force and Chas and Dave. We then headed down towards the Liver Building to see Jimmy Hendrix and Cream tribute acts. We had a brief wander down Matthew Street and then went up towards Concert Square to see some more live bands.

Liverpool is one of my favourite cities and everyone seemed to be having a good time. There were plenty of people singing along and dancing in the streets and the city was buzzing. It was a great chance to see some superb musical talent, enjoy an entertaining day out with family and friends and to enjoy some of the famous sights of Liverpool.
