Main Stage Saturday July 15th

new location

 

 

The world famous three-day Brazilica Festival returns to Liverpool city centre in 2017 for the 10TH consecutive year, from 14-16 July, and Liverpool’s International Samba Festival is proud to reveal that The Pier Head will be its new home for 2017!

There will certainly a carnival atmosphere at the former George’s Dock site which will be brought to life with a colourful celebration of the sights, sounds and tastes of Brazilian culture on the Brazilica main stage which will take pride of place within The Pier Head Village – a family focused festival coming to Liverpool’s Waterfront this summer.

The Pier Head Village will deliver a programme of world class entertainment, locally-sourced street food and artisan markets, high flying thrill rides and activity based family entertainment, offering a complete day to night summer experience designed to entertain all ages.

One of the highlights of the festival will undoubtedly be the Brazilica main stage programme which will transform the Pier Head into a sizzling hotbed of colourful carnival action. With Liverpool’s landmark trio of buildings, the Three Graces towering over the site

Organisers have revealed that 10-piece Brazilian Afrobeat band Bixiga 70 from São Paulo have added Brazilica to their European tour dates and will be performing at the Pier Head Village stage on Saturday, 15th July.

Full stage programme coming soon
