Following Lauren, Mary Anne Hobbs will broadcast her show live from 10.30am-1pm from Bluecoat, which is Liverpool’s centre for the contemporary arts and the oldest in the UK. She will hear from Anna Calvi, Villagers, Craig Charles and Clinic and there will also be live performances from The Coral, Stealing Sheep and poet Amina Atiq.
Mary Anne Hobbs says:
“Ever since The Beatles came together as teenagers in 1957 and changed the musical landscape for all time, Liverpool has been a city that has inspired generations of musicians. I’m excited that we have a chance at the 6 Music Festival to explore the Liverpool scene in 2019.”
The 6 Music Festival By Night will take place at Eventim Olympia and Mountford Hall from Friday to Sunday. 6 Music Festival Late will take place over Friday and Saturday night at the Invisible Wind Factory, with DJ sets from the likes of 2manydjs, Erol Alkan, Max Cooper and Craig Charles. 6 Music Festival By Day will feature spoken word, poetry and live performances at Camp & Furnace on Saturday and Sunday including performances from Liverpudlian legends Julian Cope and Roger McGough.
