The first headline act for Lytham Festival next year has been revealed. Courteeners will play their only North of England show of the summer at the festival on Friday, July 5. They will be supported by The Kooks and rising star Nieve Ella.
Courteeners frontman Liam Fray said, ‘We are very much looking forward to making our debut and joining the illustrious list of acts that have performed at the Lytham festival. We made the short pilgrimage from Manchester last year to watch The Strokes and were blown away by the buzz of the locals and the beauty of the scenery. What a Friday it’s going to be on July 5. See you down the front.’
Lytham Festival co-founder Peter Taylor said, ‘Courteeners are without a doubt one of the country’s biggest and best-loved bands. This is an exclusive performance for the North of England so if you want to see them next summer you need to head to Lytham Festival.’
A full rundown of the remaining headliners and support artists will be announced at 8.30am next Monday.
Lytham Festival will run from Wednesday, July 3 to Sunday, July 7.
Tickets for Courteeners go on sale at 9.30am on Friday, November 24 from www.lythamfestival.com
