Nokia and La Blogotheque are proud to announce that soul songstress Lianne La Havas will headline the third leg of the Lumia Live Sessions. The Mercury Award nominated star will perform to an intimate crowd of approx 200 guests at Rampworx, an indoor skate bowl in Liverpool on the 30th May 2013.
The past twelve months have been monumental for the London based singer. Her debut album, ‘Is Your Love Big Enough’, was voted i-Tunes album of the year and she was also nominated for BBC Sound of 2012 and the 2012 Mercury Prize.
Last month, the Lumia Live Session, saw British electro-pop band Fenech-Soler perform an awesome live set of exclusive material from their second album at Leeds Cage, a mixed martial arts venue that is one of the country’s most prestigious MMA training locations.

“I’m particularly excited to bring the Lumia Live Sessions to Liverpool as it is my home town. The Liverpool Music scene had a huge influence in my life. Music in Liverpool is still as exciting as it’s always been, with discovering new talent at its heart and we’re really proud to be hosting the next Lumia Live Session there. We will keep you posted on the support act who will hail from my home town too”
