Lancaster’s award-winning Music Festival “Welcoming Walkable Wonderful” is famous for reflecting the city of Lancaster’s vast musical abundance, excellence and diversity while bringing in top notch acts from around the UK and worldwide. Driven by 500 acts performing a wide range of genres, the festival takes place over 5 days at over 50 venues bringing the entire city to life with live music. No wonder the festival is dubbed as LANCASTER’S UNOFFICIAL BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND!
Live music venues include the main stage at Lancaster Castle, all four of Lancaster’s historic outdoor squares, Williamson Park, countless pubs, bars, restaurants, coffee places, theatres, shops and even the local brewery.
Venues will be hosting live music all times of day, with at least one venue with a 24 hour licence. For beer lovers, there is an official Festival Ale especially taste-tested by our festival team. There is also a wide variety of excellent eateries for appetites worked up by wandering from venue to venue, dancing or from general carousing.
