Aloft hotels are all about discovering and encouraging new talent and have a history of working with artists all over the world. Aloft Liverpool recently hosted the EP launch for local band ‘All We Are’ who have since made a huge impact on the music scene.

These are two brands that encourage talent and create opportunities for people within the city and that is what Best of Liverpool is all about; creating opportunity for those who may not know where to start in the entertainment industry, giving them a platform to go on and further their careers.’

Andrew Kendrick, General Manager at Aloft Liverpool, says: ‘Discovering and supporting emerging talent is something we’re passionate about here at Aloft, so the Best of Liverpool concept is something we’re proud to support. We already know that Liverpool is bursting with creativity and can’t wait to see what the city has to show us Live@Aloft.’

The event will also give something back to the people of the city by offering great entertainment and the chance for them to have their say on who they think should be crowned winner.
