With soul, funk and reggae music currently underrepresented in the North of England, the Love 4 Music Festival promises to give fans of this music a chance to see A-list artists perform without the need for a trip to London! The organisers say the main goal in organising this event is to provide a fun day where a wide group of different cultures can come together within the North of England. The Love 4 Music Festival 2018 will be an inaugural live, outdoor event with music from different genres.
