After announcing its individual day breakdowns at the end of July, Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia have revealed their daytime programme for this year’s event, as well as its line-up for the opening party.
After the success of last year’s visual delights, the festival’s main stage will be playing host to an installation titled Furnace 2.0, which promises “maximised bombardment” in an “extreme video hexahedron environment” that will be incorporated in to several performances across the two day event.
