Everyone was delighted to hear last month that Africa Oyé was going to be free after they had announced charges of £5 for entrance to what is Liverpool's best outdoor music festival.

Oyé have always maintained that they would love to keep the festival as a free event, and now and as they have told us against all odds they have managed to again make this a reality.

However, that doesn't stop them from needing a little extra support and so that have launched their own giving site on Indiegogo.
