Festival director Peter Taylor is thrilled with the line-up. “2019 is a massive year for Lytham Festival so we wanted to make sure we had a massive line-up,” said Peter.

“We have wanted to bring both Rod Stewart and Kylie Minogue to Lytham Festival for some time, so we are delighted they can both headline for our 10th anniversary year. To then also be welcoming Stereophonics, who are one of the biggest British bands of the last 20 years, the 80s legends that are The Human League, as well as Sheridan and Michael heading up what will be our Hollywood Proms night, is fantastic.

“Every year is important but our 10th anniversary is such a significant milestone and we want to see everyone partying with us. We feel the line-up for 2019 is a celebration of all that we have done with Lytham Festival during the past 10 years which is to appeal to as wide an audience as possible.

“We will be welcoming globally renowned musicians and artists to Lytham once again and we can’t wait to see everyone there.”
