The 2012 event, arranged in conjunction with Liverpool City Council, offered an evening of free entertainment and attracted over 20,000 attendees.

The June event will see some of Smooth's most popular artists, including Nell Bryden, Jack Savoretti and Leddra Chapman, perform live entertainment with several more acts to be announced.

Smooth Radio presenters will host the non-ticketed event which will be promoted by both Smooth and the council.

Smooth Radio’s group programme director John Simons said: “Last year’s Love Live Music On The Waterfront was such an overwhelming success, we just had to return to Liverpool to do it again.

"We pride ourselves on the calibre of artists we can bring to our listeners in our regular Love Live Music events, with Deacon Blue, The Overtones, Russell Watson and Will Young all performing for us over the last year. This however, is set to be our biggest yet and will give thousands of people the chance to see some of Smooth Radio’s favourite artists performing live - and for free.”

Councillor Wendy Simon of Liverpool City Council said that they were "delighted this musical extravaganza was returning once again.

“It was hugely successful last year with thousands of music lovers making the most of the free live music in the unbeatable surroundings of our World Heritage Site."
