A new festival has docked on the horizons of the Mersey and is shaping up to be an exciting twist of modern art and music.

Ferrying the youthful ambition that all new cultural events hold; Hope and Glory festival is set to take place around the grounds of St. Georges Hall and has already attracted several high profile acts.

The first band to grace this festivals hopeful debut is the glorious Glaswegian outfit The Fratellis. The Scottish rock trio will be whistling to the choir of fellow 00’s indie heavyweights Reverend and the makers.

The former front man of Keane will also be joining in the festivities. Tom Chaplin will be tiding in on the wake of his ‘carried by the wave’ tour boasting his solo material.

Amongst the abundance of decorated indie idols is a more diverse project. The Hacienda Classical will be bringing along its prized vinyl collection of intriguing reprises. This Madchester inspired collective defamiliarises classic dance and house tunes via the guise of a full orchestra and is set to headline Hope and Glory.

The Shimmer Band, The Blinders, Coquin Migale and Vynce each stand on the front lines of other inspired hopefuls; who will all be showcasing their sounds at the launch of this fresh festival.

A secret second event of unannounced acts will be taking place the evening before; which is only open to the first 1200 ticket holders. So be sure to get in early to ensure yourself access to this mysterious spectacle!
