THE festivals season starts with a bang this weekend, when live music and gathering crowds will fill Morecambe promenade – just like the good old days.

Top tributes to some of pop music’s biggest stars will perform across three days and three venues. And the Morecambe Live Weekender 2011 will also give local talent a showcase as the new “Top 20” festivals season springs into action.

This bank holiday bonanza starts at The Platform’s outdoor stage this Saturday (April 30) from noon to 5pm.

Performing will be Shad Ellis, one of the country’s best tributes to Will Smith, and the stunning Vogue tribute to the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna.

Also appearing will be local jazz/funk group Free Beer and talented teenage singer Katy Pickles.
