The Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool Marathon & ½ Marathon is back! On 24 May 2020 tens of thousands of runners will once again take to the streets of the city, and Open Culture are once again on the lookout for amazing local acts to perform along the entire 26.2 mile route.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon & ½ Marathon feature performances and music at every mile of both distances, offering plenty of opportunities for your music to be heard by tens of thousands of people – not only runners, but the families, friends and spectators who line the streets to cheer them on.
The marathon gets bigger and better every year, with well over 20,000 runners taking part across the 2019 race weekend.
What they’re looking for
They’re looking for a broad and exciting mix of music and performance that will wow the runners and keep them motivated throughout the race – for past races we’ve had a mix of singer-songwriters, rock bands, choirs, dancers, drumming groups and even ukulele bands so whatever your act is, they want to hear from you!
The marathon is open to all musical styles but generally it’s preferred for you to perform upbeat, catchy music that the runners may know or have heard before. You may even see a few participants dancing along as they run!
There is also the opportunity to play along the route of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Liverpool 5k on Saturday 23 May. Please let us know on your application form if you would like to perform on this date.
All stages are supported by a quality PA and stage manager / technician.
How to Apply
The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday 12 April 2020.
