From the free-festival opening party featuring The Duke Spirit on Friday 28th October, the MOJO hosted free shows include gigs by Young Knives, Tribes, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Foreign Beggars, Lanterns on the Lake, DELS, Big Deal, Baxter Dury, Twin Sister, Gardens and Villa, Marcus Foster, Cashier no 9, Three Trapped Tigers, Summer Camp, Stealing Sheep, and Dog Is Dead with proceedings being wrapped up by festival favourites Frankie And The Heartstrings.

The full agenda for the free shows will be announced in the next 2 weeks. LMW Director Mike Deane said, "We are thrilled at the agenda we have pulled together for 2011. A sold out opening show with one of the hottest bands on the planet and a hugely ambitious closing show at one of the city's most intriguing venues. But once again, the free festival we’ve announced is a blinder – our best to date – showcasing the best new bands out there alongside the freshest talent our great city has to offer. We can’t wait for this year's festival to kick off."

100 guaranteed-entry free tickets are available for each show online at 2 tickets per person.
