Highlights from one of last year’s festival performances
I’m delighted to say that Liverpool’s first and only independent online music festival The 2ubeXtra returns on 13th April 2016. Once again, The 2ube are building up to this year’s festival by staging weekly 2ube Live shows every Friday night, but 2016 has brought an exciting new development… For the first time ever, The 2ube Live will be broadcast each week on Liverpool’s Bay TV. The weekly show on Bay TV consists of past highlights from 2ube Live events punctuated by live shows, the latest of which took place on Friday 18th of March. This event was also broadcast by TV stations NVTV in Belfast and Latest TV in Brighton as well as streamed around the world via YouTube between 5pm and 7pm.
This unique proposition places new music at the top of it’s agenda, highlighting the diversity and talent of the UK’s music scene, showcasing some of the UK’s hottest breakthrough acts and featuring interviews and exclusive performances from special guests.
The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) is a specialist university level institution for performers and those who make performance possible.
Co-founded in 1996 by Lead Patron Sir Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty RNOM OBE (LIPA’s Principal), it is housed in McCartney’s old school which underwent a multi-million pound renovation to transform it into a state-of-the-art performing arts higher education institution. LIPA is an acknowledged as part of the UK’s higher education provision for the performing arts and provides learning for the main skills needed for putting on a show, uniquely blending specialist and generic skills.
The 2ube Live takes place every Friday inside Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and presents some of the best new music from within the institution and across the local scene, as well as playing host to some of the UK’s hottest breakthrough acts. Each month The 2ube Live is streamed live to a worldwide online audience showcasing band’s sets and featuring interviews and exclusive performances from special guests.
