The county’s biggest open-air music festival, Highest Point is set to take place in May in the stunning, 54-acre grounds of Williamson Park, which is gearing up to host thousands of happy revellers for the three-day event.

Across the weekend of Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th, the festival will host sets from Basement Jaxx, Sigala, Reverend and the Makers, Example, Jax Jones, The Lottery Winners, and The Sherlocks in truly stunning surroundings boasting views over Morecambe Bay and out to the Lake District fells.

"It was amazing to be able to host the festival last September after two years off, the crowd was amazing and we had such incredible feedback,” said Jamie Scahill, co-founder of the festival. “We have another huge line up heading for Lancaster. We can’t wait”
