Kings of Leon to headline new Liverpool festival

Kings Of Leon are to headline a new one-day event in Liverpool promoted by the team behind the city's Fusion Festival.  

The band will perform a UK festival exclusive set at the inaugural Fusion Presents in Sefton Park on Friday, August 30.

They will be supported by a line-up including Franz Ferdinand, Echo & The Bunnymen and BRITs Critics' Choice winner Sam Fender, with more to be announced.

"Liverpool has always been a city with strong music heritage and we’ve wanted to launch a new event for the last couple of years," said event director Damien Sanders. "The biggest challenge has been finding the right artist for the job. We’re over the moon that we were able to secure one of the world’s most successful rock bands to launch Fusion Presents and we cannot wait to see them perform in our new home, Sefton Park."

Fusion Presents is a standalone show and is run separately to Fusion Festival, which is now in its seventh year and in 2018 welcomed the likes of David Guetta, Shawn Mendes, Jess Glynne and Years & Years.
