Next summer’s Festival will boast five nights of headlining music in the Main Proms Arena on Lytham Green from Wednesday, August 2 to Sunday, August 6.

The full line-up will be revealed at www.lythamfestival.com on Sunday, December 18 at 7pm, when tickets will immediately go on sale.

Lytham Festival director Peter Taylor said: “We are very excited about announcing all the main headline acts for Lytham Festival next week.

“Once again we have an eclectic mix of music stars from across the globe and we are confident 2017 will be a year that has mass appeal to a very wide audience.

“We have been planning next year’s festival for months and have put a real emphasis on ensuring we have pop stars and musicians to suit every age group, so watch this space.”

Already, more weekend tickets have been sold than ever before – 3,000 compared to just 500 in advance of the acts being announced last year.

Headliners Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Bryan Adams wowed crowds of almost 30,000 people over two nights in the Main Proms Arena last August, while around 40,000 people enjoyed a further three nights of live entertainment on Lytham Green and a week of music, comedy and film at six satellite venues throughout town.

Peter added: “We only have 1,000 weekend tickets remaining for 2017 so I would urge anyone who wants to grab a bargain to do so in the next few days.”

Early bird weekend tickets, giving festival-goers access to Main Proms Arena on Thursday to Sunday, are available at the special price of just £139 until midnight on Sunday. Price after that will be £175.

Anyone with a weekend ticket who wishes to upgrade to add the Wednesday night concert will receive a discount code enabling them to get the tickets at a reduction of £10.
