Pop superstars Little Mix are bringing their unmissable live show to Lytham Festival 2020.

It is announced this morning that the world’s biggest girl band will headline the 11th annual festival on Sunday July 5. The announcement follows the news that global icon Lionel Richie, international chart-topper Lewis Capaldi, pop superstars Westlife, and indie giants Snow Patrol will also headline Lytham Festival 2020.

This stellar line-up has been revealed as Lancashire’s biggest music festival prepares for another sell-out year. The 11th annual Lytham Festival will take place on Lytham Green from Wednesday 01 to Sunday 05 July. Five-day passes giving festival-goers access to all nights on Lytham Green are on sale now from www.lythamfestival.com. Individual tickets to each night will go on sale at 8am Thursday November 28.

Opening Lytham Festival 2020 on Wednesday July 1 will be a headlining show from Irish pop superstars Westlife as part of their UK wide Stadiums in the Summer Tour. Hailed as the UK’s top selling album group of the 21st Century, the Lytham Festival show will see the global pop kings perform all of their greatest hits including Swear It Again, Flying Without Wings and You Raise Me Up as well as sensational up-tempo new songs from their forthcoming new album Spectrum.

Thursday July 2 will see rapidly rising international star Lewis Capaldi headline the Main Proms Arena. It’s been a meteoric rise to success for the Scottish singer-songwriter who is currently enjoying huge adoration on both sides of the Atlantic and has just been nominated for a Grammy Award for his hit Someone You Loved.

Indie rockers Snow Patrol are the Friday night headliners. With a 25-year career they have racked up an impressive number of accolades including more than 17 million global album sales and an Ivor Novello award. Their 2006 monster hit single Chasing Cars went on to become UK radio’s most played song of the 21st Century.

Saturday night will see international superstar Lionel Richie headline as he will perform hits from his extensive and much-loved repertoire spanning decades, all the way from the Commodores to the present day. His music is part of the fabric of pop music and Richie has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and is an Oscar, Golden Globe, and four-time Grammy Awards winner.

Lytham Festival will close on Sunday July 5 with a headlining set from the world’s biggest girl band Little Mix, as part of their huge outdoor Summer 2020 tour.
