FESTIVALS HAPPENING IN MAY: HIGHEST POINT FESTIVAL

Highest Point, Lancashire’s biggest open-air festival is welcoming back thousands of attendees this May, for a three-day musical extravaganza featuring an array of chart-toppers and rock legends.

The festival is set to be held from Thursday 12th – Saturday 14th May 2022 at the stunning 54-acre grounds of Williamson Park, and will be headlined by Clean Bandit, Richard Ashcroft and Kaiser Chiefs. As well as these, guests can expect to see more than one hundred artists across six stages over the course of the weekend, plus enjoy a premier regional street food and craft beer offering on-site. 

The headliners at this year’s event are set to be accompanied by the likes of Basement Jaxx, Sigala, Example, Brit Nominee Not3s, Low Steppa, as well as breakout stars Mae Muller and Mimi Webb. There will also be appearances from Horse Meat Disco, SASASAS, Shy FX, Sub Focus, Turno, DJ & producer Emily Nash, Lancaster natives Lowes, Judge Jules, Luke Una, Charlie Tee and local hero Matt Thiss plus indie favourites Reverend and the Makers, and The Lottery Winners.  For a dose of nostalgia, Escape Classics, Mr Wilsons Second Liners, 80s V 90s and Funkademia will wow the crowds & festival favourites The Cuban Brothers will return once again this year, with their outrageous comedy performances.
