The free festival from 12pm to 5pm will also host live music, arts and crafts and street performers.

Professional kite flyers will spread out over Morecambe beach to show off their skills and array of colours from the different types of kites on offer.

The festival has become a highlight for the resort over the past ten years and is centred around an outdoor music stage in front of The Platform.

Organisers More Music are also encouraging people who come along to bring their own kite as well.

The live music will include performances from Baybeat Streetband, Mikey Kenney, Dhamak Bollywood Brass Band, Schooltrip, The Hut People, Rafe Musicircus, Cumbrian Gaita Band, The Situates, Red Hippo and A Dread Supreme.

Uncle Takko’s Flea Circus and Dom Tink, Rafe the One Man Circus and the Boom Bike will be entertaining the crowds over the two days.

Kite goers will also get the chance to dance the night away at More Music’s Hothouse on June 27 from 7.30pm with the Hothouse Ceilidh featuring Striding Edge. Tickets cost £7/£5 in advance.
