Liverpool named England’s ‘most musical city’

Beatles' hometown tops new poll

Liverpool has been hailed as England’s most musical city, beating Sheffield in an Arts Council poll.

The current European Capital Of Culture took 49 per cent of the vote, with Sheffield second and Manchester in third.

As part of the poll, unsigned Liverpool band The Affection will play this year’s End Of The Road Festival in Dorset.

So did Liverpool deserve to win for the likes of The Beatles, The La’s and even The Zutons, or should the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Pulp have pushed up Sheffield‘s ranking?
