LIMF 2013: The Farm to perform special free gig at Stanley Park


Legendary Liverpool band The Farm will be performing at Stanley Park as part of this year’s Liverpool International Music Festival. They will headline a special free gig on Sunday 8 September in Anfield. The group who had eight top forty hit singles in the UK including Groovy Train and All Together Now, will be returning to the stage with their original line–up.

More recently the band performed on the Justice Collective song, He Ain’t Heavy, in aid of the Hillsborough campaign.

Lead singer Peter Hooton said: “It’s a real honour to be invited to play in Stanley Park by the Liverpool International Music Festival. The whole group are really excited to be playing there on what looks like a great day out. We have played quite a few festivals this summer and we can’t think of a better way to end the festival season.”

The Farm toured the world between 1990 and 1994 but went their separate ways in 1995 but continued to enjoy popular appeal and their records have become all time classics.

In December 2010 the original line-up returned to play their home city and it was such a success that they decided they should play live again.

LIMF music curator, Yaw Owusu, said: “The gig at Stanley Park will be another must-see event for music lovers and I am absolutely delighted that The Farm have agreed to be part of the inaugural year of the event.”

Mayor Joe Anderson said: “Stanley Park is in the heart of north Liverpool and it is a great space to hold a music event. We are determined to make sure that people right across the city get the chance to be part of LIMF.”

The Farm gig will form part of the Stanley Park Festival, which celebrates all of the positive things happening in the Anfield area.
