Pleasure Island presents the Penny Lane Weekender, a brand-new two-day festival, set to rock Dovedale Towers, Penny Lane, Liverpool on August 5 and 6. The event promises to showcase a captivating mix of local and UK artists spanning the genres of rock and electronic music.
That the event is planned and produced by the artists themselves, shows a refreshing change to similar music festivals that have a more corporate influence on their production. The Penny Lane Weekender is a reflection of the diverse roles that musicians are having to fulfill in order to showcase their talent and provide entertainment for music lovers, in the background of financial struggles in wider society and the arts sector. You can be sure that the performers will benefit from your attendance, with your support going directly to the acts.
The first wave of artists confirmed for the Liverpool Penny Lane Weekender are sure to cause a buzz amongst Northern music enthusiasts, with bands hailing from Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and Nottingham.
