LIMF Curator, Yaw Owusu said, "Very pleased to announce the next stage of the LIMF 2015 programme - which adds depth to what I believe is our best festival programme so far. It has been a pleasure working alongside our various artistic friends such as Steve Levine, Bido Lito!, Getintothis, Mellowtone and Circus to further strengthen the offer.
"Also with joy we have been able to partner with the British Council, Steve Biko Foundation and Steve Biko Housing Association to make a very exciting and important music collaborative project happen between South African artists and Liverpool-based artists. And don't forget we still do have more to announce!"
