Our favourite new festival opens with some familiar faces

Some of Liverpool’s finest bands have played today at the Knowlsey Hall festival.

Pete Wylie’s Wah! played a rousing Greatest Hits set, including debut single, “You Better Scream”, “Sinful”, “Come Back” and “Heart As Big As Liverpool”.

Wah! were followed on stage by Shack, featuring Mick and John Head, whose set included a fiery version of Arthur Lee’s “House Is Not A Motel”.

The Thrills, from across the water in Ireland, played crowd favourites “Santa Cruz” and “One Horse Town”.

Headliners The Who are scheduled to take the stage at 9.

Weather and toilet conditions have, thankfully, held up so far.
