MADNESS are to headline the Saturday night at next year's Lytham Festival.

Following an announcement last week that Courteeners would top the bill on the Friday night, three more headliners have been revealed for the festival on Lytham Green which runs from Wednesday, July 3 to Sunday, July 7.

Lancashire Telegraph: Madness

Music fans can look forward to live shows from Madness, Hozier and James.

Lancashire Telegraph: Hozier

The festival gets under way with a performance from Hozier with support from Brittany Howard and Lord Huron.

Hozier, the internationally acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter, had a breakthrough hit Take Me To Church and has subsequently released chart-topping songs Someone New and Nina Cried Power.

Brittany Howard, formerly of Alabama Shakes brings her own blend of rock soul, funk and RnB. Enigmatic Los Angeles-based indie folk band Lord Huron will also join the line-up.

The Thursday night line-up is due to be announced soon and Friday features Courteeners, The Kooks and Nieve Ella.

Joining those nutty boys Madness on the Saturday will be Rick Astley and Lightning Seeds.

Lancashire Telegraph: James Orchestral

Sunday sees indie legends James accompanied by the Orca22 Orchestra and the Manchester Inspirational Voices Choir for a special James Orchestral headline slot. The Manchester theme continues with Johnny Marr providing the support.

Lytham Festival co-founder Peter Taylor said: "We love to announce the line up for Lytham Festival and once again, I am delighted we are going to bring an eclectic mix of artists to Lytham Green next summer.

"From the opening night with Hozier to closing with James, and Courteeners and Madness in between, there really is something for everyone. Mixed with that is a list of amazing special guests and support artists who will appeal to a wide range of music fans and make for very different but equally as brilliant nights.

"We still have the fifth headliner to announce. This is another exciting name and one we plan to reveal very soon alongside their UK tour plans."

Opening Lytham Festival 2024 each night will be DJ Rusty Egan, one of the founders of London’s iconic Blitz Club in the 1970s and 80s.

Tickets for the Courteeners are now on sale. Five-day passes go on general sale at 8am Wednesday and individual tickets to the remaining nights announced will go on sale at 8am Thursday. Details from
