Paul Weller to headline Lytham Festival

British music icon Paul Weller will headline the final night of Lytham Festival 2022.

British music icon Paul Weller will headline the final night of Lytham Festival 2022.

As frontman of The Jam, the man behind The Style Council and a hugely successful solo artist, Weller is without doubt one of the UK’s most prolific and well-respected music artists.

And he is now heading to Lytham Festival on Sunday July 10 where he will be joined by indie legends The Charlatans, indie pop band Lottery Winners and rising Welsh soul singer Nia Wyn.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday March 18 from www.lythamfestival.com

The announcement marks the final headliner for what will be Lytham Festival’s biggest ever event taking place over 10 nights between Tuesday June 28 and Sunday July 10 with Motown legend Diana Ross, US rock giants The Strokes, Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, indie rockers Snow Patrol, kings of disco Nile Rodgers & CHIC, British music icons Duran Duran, Elbow and Simply Red and global favourites Tears For Fears.

Few artists have had as great an influence on the British music scene as Paul Weller. As frontman of The Jam, he spearheaded the Mod revival in the late ’70s and early ’80s, scoring a string of hits before forming The Style Council and then embarking on a stellar solo career.

The last two years have seen an incredible creative output from Weller, releasing no fewer than three new studio albums – all to widespread acclaim.

Weller’s live shows are the stuff of legend, mixing his unstoppable brand of high adrenaline rock with beautiful acoustic moments and Lytham Festival will be treated to an incredible evening from an artist who possesses one of music’s most brilliant and diverse catalogues that remains ever relevant.

Supporting Weller at Lytham will be The Charlatans, Lottery Winners and Nia Wyn. A career spanning more than 30 years has seen rock band and indie legends The Charlatans enjoy 13 successful studio albums with three hitting the UK Number One spot. Lottery Winners are no strangers to Lytham Festival having first performed on Stage Too back in 2016 but 2022 marks a first outing on the main Lytham Green stage for the indie pop outfit from Greater Manchester. And Nia Wyn is a rising Welsh star who will bring a soulful set to open the night.
