Above the Beaten Track is back for its fourth year – put the date in your diary NOW!
Above The Beaten Track is a festival celebrating the creative grass roots scene of Liverpool, featuring live music and DJs, performance art, poetry and audio-visual spectaculars – it showcases the best of Liverpool’s cultural underground.
Above the Beaten Track is returning in 2011 with more than a nod to honky tonk, as live music, DJs, performance art, poetry and audio-visual spectaculars from across the city (and some very special guests from further afield) come together at the Bluecoat in the heart of town.
Our philosophy is all about inclusion, not only giving a platform for the hardworking musicians of our city but letting our friends and partners have a hand in running the festival. In addition to Mellowtone and Beaten Tracks’ offerings, this year we have stages hosted by Liverpool Acoustic, Lazy Genius and Draw the Line, and Culturepool will be returning once again to add their birthday festivities to the event.
Now in our fourth year, we’re back at the Bluecoat for Above the Beaten Track : Honky Tonk.
Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK.

The website publishes news from the local acoustic music scene, previews of upcoming events, reviews of music releases and gigs, and the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast. This content is available for free via email subscription. The diary lists acoustic events including festivals, theatre concerts, folk clubs, showcases and open mic nights.
