Now in its 9th year, Lancaster Music Festival is being extended by 2 days to take place from Thursday 12th to Monday 16th October 2017.
The festival will feature over 200 acts performing a wide range of genres at nearly 50 venues all within walking distance across the city of Lancaster, inLancashire. Most of the shows will be free.
A huge number of acts have been announced. For all of the details please see the official website.
Lancaster Music Festival is famous for reflecting the city of Lancaster's musical abundance, excellence and diversity.
Live music venues include the main stage at Lancaster Castle, all four of Lancaster's historic outdoor squares, Williamson Park, countless pubs, bars, restaurants, coffee places, theatres, shops, two local breweries and, new for this year two heritage double-decker buses and a flotilla of canal barges.
There are venues open at all times with at least one with a 24 hour licence. The festival caters for kids of all ages from 8 to 80. The venues are within easy walking distance of each other and are located mostly in the city centre. There are plenty of accommodation options, as well as many places to eat and drink in Lancaster, and the festival is very centrally located.
Almost all the shows are free (there’s a nominal £2 entry into the Castle and there are several ticketed events). Venues will be hosting live music all times of day, with at least two venues with a 24 hour licence. For beer lovers, there is an unofficial Festival Ale specially taste-tested by our festival team. There is also a wide variety of excellent eateries for appetites worked up by wandering from venue to venue, dancing or from general carousing. For visitors to the city there are plenty of hotels providing overnight accommodation (we advise early booking as rooms tend to sell out fast), as well as a campsite at Lancaster Cricket Ground.
