Music and nightlife
Liverpool is Europe’s Capital of Music. It’s impossible to imagine Liverpool without music – or music without Liverpool.
Birthplace of The Beatles, the world’s most famous pop group, the city is home to a host of first-class festivals, including Sound City, Liverpool International Music Festival, Africa Oyé and Liverpool Loves. The world-leading dance festival Creamfields is held just outside the city each year and attracts some of the biggest DJs in the industry.
The city’s M&S Bank Arena Liverpool hosts everything, from big name acts like Little Mix, Liam Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys, Stormzy and Drake, to major entertainment events, including the Netball World Cup and British Gymnastics Championship Series.
There is also a thriving nightlife with all tastes catered for, from the latest clubs to 70s-themed bars and live music venues. One of the city’s most exciting areas is the Baltic Triangle. At the heart of Liverpool’s independent scene, this former factory and workshop district is constantly evolving as new cafés, clubs and live music venues emerge. All within easy reach and only a short taxi ride away from both campuses.
