There's one festival that's taking over Liverpool's city centre. With it's first year having jaws dropping and taking the finest cuts of local talent I'm introducing Hope & Glory which will be situated in the historically renowned Victorian backdrops of Liverpool. Hope & Glory will see 3 stages scattered across outside the World Museum and City Library, taking over St Georges Hall and St Johns Gardens on the 5th and 6th August. Welcoming this new mind blowing festival will grace star studded acts with an overwhelmingly wonderful amount of talent not just from the music industry, but also dance, theatre, fashion. Hope & Glory have stated it's "Charles Darwin meets Tim Burton" and we're going absolutely mental for it!
Who's Playing Hope & Glory?
With announcements pouring in over the past few weeks and many more to be announced - as well as a secret gig in St Georges Hall, which I'll be giving away 10 tickets to some lucky people! Hope & Glory lineup is one not to be missed in the glorious sunshine.

What Else To Do?
The festival capacity is 12,500 ensuring that Liverpool gets a good opportunity to blow out with buildings with music, in a weekend of pure excitement. Everything has been thought of in that Hope & Glory has a Gin Palace, as well as incredible sights of food being cooked from the engine of a mini - yes this is a sight you'll never find anywhere! Also if you fancy some fun and games in-between acts you can get yourself down to Kaleidescope corner of Hope & Glory where you can ride a Penny Farthing, beat your friends in a space hopper race, and compete in arm wrestling competitions. This festival is simply, the big top of Liverpool packed with fun, and good times.
Also which is rather exciting to announce, I will also be playing at Hope & Glory in Stephi LaReine's Fashionista Hour, a new conceptually abstract one to one experience in which you can ask for any fashion or beauty advice. Everyone is welcome for a personalised session in my flamingo, cactus filled fortune telling booth on the stage In The Lady Garden - the best name ever!
