Kasabian for Liverpool Music Week

Chart topping British rock behemoths Kasabian have been confirmed as the headliners for this year’s Liverpool Music Week.

Founded in 2003, Liverpool Music Week has grown from strength to strength. Supporting local talent as well as attracting massive performers, the event has grown in stature to become Britain’s biggest winter indoor music festival.

Last year Liverpool Music Week attracted a record breaking 55,000 people with this winter’s event set to eclipse that total.

Organisers unveiled the first of their bill this week, with Kasabian being invited to headline the event. The Leicester group have become big news since the success of their new album ‘West Rider Pauper Asylum’.

Hitting number one on the charts the group were propelled into a word of arena tours, and have been invited to support Oasis on their mammoth UK jaunt. A stunning live act, ClashMusic recently caught the band in action – click HERE to read what we made of it!

LMW Director James Barton said: “Liverpool Music Week has gone from strength to strength over the last 7 years and attracted some of the UK’s biggest acts, this year we’ve secured Kasabian our biggest headliner to date, attracting a band of this stature proves just how far the festival has come.”

Joining Kasabian on the bill are fellow Oasis support group The Enemy. After releasing their second album ‘Music For The People’ earlier this year the band are riding the crest of a wave, playing sensational shows wherever they go.

Also confirmed for the bill are the highly controversial Reverend & The Makers. Lead singer Jon McClure has already split the group once, and recently responded to the BNP’s gains in the European elections with a hard hitting song.

LMW Founder & Director Mike Deane said: “It was always going to be a difficult task to better the amazing year we had in ’08, and we’ve worked extremely hard since the start of the year to ensure the festival is once again bigger and better. This is just the first of several big announcements for Liverpool Music Week 2009”.

Liverpool Music Week takes place at venues across the city from November 7th – 16th.
