NEWS: Corrie star and DJ Craig Charles to launch On The Waterfront weekend

Music on the Waterfront
returns with a bang on Friday 13 June with a very special free concert which will launch the International Mersey River Festival weekend. BBC Radio 6 Music will host The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Homecoming featuring live performances and DJ sets followed by a weekend of music and activities.

Kicking off with BBC Radio Merseyside, the evening will start with some classic tunes and special guests as well as appearances from some of the station’s biggest names.

Then as the sun starts to set, Craig Charles will take to the stage for a homecoming show, bringing with him some very special friends to perform live, and of course his trunk of funk to share some of the best funk and soul music around. And then to make sure the evening ends with a bang, it will be wrapped up with one of Craig’s legendary DJ sets.

The music extravaganza continues during the Saturday and Sunday – with a difference this year – as performances will take place throughout the afternoon, rather than the evening.

On Saturday, Smooth Radio will provide the artists, who are yet to be confirmed, and on Sunday there will be a big band theme with performances form the Royal Marine Band of Scotland, a Bollywood brass band and a Rat Pack tribute act.

The music programme forms part of the Mersey River Festival which celebrates Liverpool’s Maritime history.
