Lytham Festival is a UK music festival based in Lytham by the Lancashire coastline near Blackpool with a fantastic line up of musicians and bands.
Taking place from from 29th June – Sunday 3rd July 2022, the festival showcases top rock, pop and classical music acts across the five-day event.
The Lytham Festival 2022 line-up includes headliners Westlife, Lewis Capaldi, Snow Patrol, Lionel Richie and Little Mix in the festival’s biggest line-up yet that will have you dancing all night long, with many more still to be announced.
Formerly known as Lytham Proms, it has fast become Lancashire’s largest and best loved live music festival. It attracts thousands of festival goers for a week of live music, arts and entertainment by the sea. The majority of the festival action is centred around the Main Proms Arena on Lytham Green.
Lytham Festival has grown from a one-night-only community Proms-style concert to a spectacular five-day live music event which now attracts well in excess of 70,000 people each summer.
Staged on the banks of Lancashire’s stunning Ribble Estuary, the festival was the brainchild of friends Daniel Cuffe and Peter Taylor.
What started out as two local lads having an idea for a one-night event for Leafy Lytham is now a huge event on the national music calendar, with fans travelling from all four corners of the UK as well as from overseas to witness and take part in this festival.
In 2010 just 4,500 local people came to what was then Lytham Proms to watch soprano Lesley Garrett perform.
A year later Lytham Proms grew into a three-day event with headliners Status Quo and Boyzone as well as a traditional proms concert headlined by Katherine Jenkins.
As the Proms gained increasing popularity, in 2015 it became a four-day event and was re-branded Lytham Festival.
And since 2015 Lytham Festival has been a five-day event.
Headliners have varied massively over the years ranging from the likes of Billy Ocean, Tom Jones, Faithless and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds to Bryan Adams, Hacienda Classical, Nile Rodgers and CHIC and Madness.
Alongside those headliners have been spectacular picnic Proms-style concerts attracting classical and musical theatre royalty including Lea Salonga, Ramin Karimloo, Michael Ball, Sheridan Smith, Alfie Boe, Collabro and Jodie Prenger.
2019 marked the 10th anniversary with headline shows from Rod Stewart, Kylie Minogue and Stereophonics.
And as Lytham Festival prepares to enter a new decade, 2022 will see five nights of live music light up Lytham Green once again. This tranquil beauty spot is normally reserved for dog walkers, kite flyers and family picnics but for one week each summer it is transformed into a buzzing live music hub as artists from across the globe perform to crowds of up to 20,000 people a night.
