Last year Fusion Festival UK brought pop to Birmingham with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Rudimental, and McBusted. Four years old and going from strength to strength, Fusion has moved to Liverpool in 2016 with a fantastic line-up. On Saturday 3rd, the River Mersey plays host to Jason Derulo, Tinie Tempah, Labrinth, Craig David, Sigala, and Fleur East, while Sunday 4th boasts a host of Pop favourites from Olly Murs to Busted. General admission day tickets start from £48.50, but with such an array of talent it’s worth looking at a ticket for the full weekend starting at £89.00.

Liverpool will be hosting Fusion at Otterspool Promenade – a 13-minute drive from the Megabus stop in Liverpool ONE. All the artists will be performing on the world famous waterfront of the River Mersey; a spectacular backdrop that embodies so much musical history. Liverpool was recognised as a City of Music by the UN in 2015, and named the ‘City of Pop’ in 2001 by Guinness Book of Records. And it’s easy to see why. The Zutons. The Coral. The La’s. Dead or Alive. Gerry and the Pacemakers. The late, great Cilla Black. It almost seems like overkill to mention The Beatles.

Small wonder then that an event as fresh as Fusion has decided to relocate to Liverpool for its biggest and best line-up to date. They’ve teamed up with Capital FM, whose recent move to the city sees them stamping their mark on the musical scene by bringing in more talent and non-stop music. There may not be a camping option at Fusion, but with Otterspool Promenade being so close to the city’s nightlife, it barely matters. Liverpool’s bar scene ranks among the best in the world, with nearby indie bar Camp and Furnace recently having been ranked one of the best in the UK.

Get by with a little help from Megabus, with coach tickets from just £1.50—we’re the only choice when it comes to cost and comfort.
