Southwest Sessions

Southwest Sessions are bringing the freshest beats to Liverpool this July!*

Friday and Saturday nights in the Liverpool CBD are going to be the spot for hip hop and r&b lovers with soulful sessions from local artists you know and love.

Featuring a line-up curated by hip-hop powerhouse The Area Movement, and local heroes Street University and Studio 267, Southwest Sessions are coming to you in the two final weekends this month.

There'll be heaps more to do - game away, pick up a sweet deal on some new or pre-loved gear, or simply grab a drink and feed to kick back while you chill to the beats.

We've got the music and good vibes, so come through for a good time!
