Lancaster Music Festival

LANCASTER’S third annual Music Festival will take the city by storm on the weekend of October 14-16.

A packed three days of local and global musical talent is in store featuring 101 acts performing at 28 locations in Lancaster. Most of the performances will be within walking distance of each other and most will be free.

There will be something for everyone – folk (Americana, Celtic, English, Neo), funk (jazz, Latin, blues), grunge, punk, pop (indie, alternative, mainstream), contemporary classical, choral, jazz (Latin, swing, piano, trad), rock, avant garde, soul, blues and more.

Events include a funk fest at the Gregson, maritime music on the Quay, student bands at the Park, Jah Wobble’s Memoirs of a Geezer at The Dukes Playhouse, festival headline closing act Kirsty Almeida (Dalton Rooms on the Sunday) and, along with all the music, there will be a festival ale and ale trail courtesy of Mitchells of Lancaster, a food trail courtesy of LESS (Local Effective Sustainable Solutions) and even a free iPhone festival game courtesy of Lancashire Treasure Trails.
