New music event to help keep Smithdown Road Festival running

The team behind the popular Smithdown Road Festival has announced a new autumn event to support its annual community celebration.

Every May Bank Holiday the free festival raises thousands of pounds for Liverpool charity the Whitechapel Centre, and organisers hope this forthcoming eight-stage music showcase will help enable it to run for years to come.

The inaugural Smithdown Crawl will take place on 13 October across the area’s venues and spaces including Handyman Brewery, Craft Taproom, Frank’s Bar, Kelly’s Dispensary, Door 477, Mystery Garden and The Secret Place.

The Smithdown Road Festival CIC, which is behind the event, has announced the first wave of acts for the line-up, which will see more than 50 bands perform to wristband holders.

Beans On Toast, Tommy Scott from Space (pictured), The DSM IV, Organ Freeman, Takotsubo Men and The Seamonsters are among the list of acts confirmed so far, with further announcements still to come.
