American rock band The Strokes and British pop rock legends Tears for Fears are set to face the spotlight at what is said to be an ‘almighty’ 10-day 2022 Lytham Festival.
They are the first of the ‘Part II’ headliners to be announced, with three more massive names expected in the coming weeks and months.
Stadium fillers, The Strokes (pictured below) and Tears for Fears (pictured below) will join the already announced ‘Part I’ acts – Diana Ross, Lewis Capaldi, Snow Patrol, Duran Duran and Lionel Richie.
For 2022, Lytham Festival has expanded to 10 days over two weekends between Thursday, June 28 and Wednesday, July 10 with 200,000 people expected to be in attendance at the expanded music festival.
The Strokes will headline Friday, July 8 while Tears for Fears will play Saturday, July 9. Fontaines D.C. are set to play before The Strokes with Alison Moyet and Natalie Imbruglia supporting Tears for Fears.
The 10-day premises licence is for one year only. In 2023, Lytham Festival will revert to its usual five nights.
