REM has a long history of working in Liverpool and unrivalled expertise in maritime festivals so we were delighted to be awarded the site and production management contract.
The International Mersey River Festival and Music on the Waterfront sees tens of thousands of people head to the waterfront. Highlights included a fleet of vessels which were open for visitors to explore at set times across the weekend, walking tours, model boat displays, flyboarding, Zap Cat racing, have-a-go water sport sessions, the 25th International Canoe Polo Tournament, a special Brouhaha parade and field gun displays.
In addition, visitors were also treated to live music courtesy of Music on the Waterfront. Starting on Friday evening with a homecoming DJ set from Craig Charles, there will performances by The Christians, Rhydian, Jaki Graham, Esco Williams, the Band of HM Royal Marines Scotland and Rat Pack Live. Russell Watson also aboard Tall Ship Mercedes.
