Our recent competition included two 3 day wristbands for Liverpool Sound City. This is the 5th year of the Festival and 80s Casuals have been involved in the last four. From organising the closing party to participating in the John Peel 5 a-side World Cup.
The Festival itself has grown year on year with this years including the K+S Football Film Festival plus an Expo at the Liverpool Echo Arena as well as the usual plethora of up and coming bands and the odd established one.
Tickets usual go on sale in November for the princely sum of £20 which admits you to any of the gigs over the 3 day period before steadily rising to £45 in the last month before the Festival.
We shall be out and about from next Thursday 17 May, popping into the Football Screenings at Static before catching up with a few bands, then on the Saturday we shall be participating in the Umbro sponsored John Peel 5 a-side World Cup at Chevasse Park, Liverpool 1. Teams taking part include the likes of Umbro, Liverpool 1, Ghostpoet, Tea Street Band, Bido Lito, Spiel Magazine and D/R/U/G/S.
Funds raised from the event go to the British Heart Foundation.
We'll let you know how things transpire a week on Sunday.
Freakbeat Films should be doing a bit of filming and Photography. The video above is from the launch  last week in Hoxton London were four Liverpool bands were showcased. They included Luke Fenlon, Red Suns, Tea Street Band and The Hummingbirds.
