L-Fresh the Lion
L-Fresh The Lion is the headline act for the next Liverpool Night Markets this Saturday, March 7.

The CBD Exposed urban youth music festival will take over the Liverpool Night Markets this Saturday, March 7, with headline act and Triple J favourite L-Fresh the Lion featuring Mirrah and MK-1, as well as some of Australia’s most talented young dancers from The Street University including The Pioneers, set to perform.

“Council is a big supporter and fan of The Street University’s work, and as such it’s fantastic to have the CBD Exposed festival and The Street University on board for the March Night Markets,” said Mayor Ned Mannoun.

“We’re excited to see what these talented young people, many of whom are from the Liverpool area, have planned for us,’’ he said.

“We welcome families and the wider community to come along to see what they’re about and to enjoy the free live entertainment.”

Market goers will also be able to pick up items from the Street University’s latest clothing range. Street Uni Clothing is designed and produced by young people, who also learn about what it takes to run a business.

L-Fresh The Lion is renowned for his powerful presence, inspiring live shows and thought-provoking hip hop lyrics.

In a short space of time, this Western Sydney artist has gone from underground community events and ciphers to national tours and major festivals. It speaks of an MC with a sense of purpose and self-belief.

His debut album “One’’ announced L-Fresh The Lion as part of the new generation of hip hop artists currently making waves in the music industry.

It’s a time of change and there’s excitement in the air watching young people magnetised by the uplifting narrative of L-Fresh’s Triple-J hit Survive. He took on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song and reworked it in such an original fashion, incorporating Punjabi MC so that it was spoken of as one of the best Like a Versions of 2014.

Inspired by the soulful movement in U.S. hip hop of the late 1990s and early 2000s, and the love and respect for his own cultural and ancestral roots of the Sikhs from Panjab, India, L-Fresh is an artist like no other.

Aligning himself with many social justice issues, L-Fresh has dedicated himself to working tirelessly in the community. At present, he is an ambassador for All Together Now, Australia’s only national charity that exists solely to address racism.

Having signed to legendary Australian hip-hop label Elefant Traks in the beginning of 2015, L-Fresh has big plans for the near future.
