Embrace to headline Lancaster festival

Northern indie band Embrace are set to perform at a 3-day festival in Lancaster this May.

The inaugural Highest Point festival will take place in Williamson Park on the 18th-20th May and will feature an array of DJs and other music artists.

Embrace, who have had three number one albums will take the main stage on Saturday evening and will be joined over the weekend by the likes of dance act Sasha, Joe Goddard from Hot Chip and James Zabiela.

Other acts in the line up include drum and bass legend High Contrast and electronic group K-Klass, who famously met in The Hacienda. The returning Hacienda Classical, who entertained fans in Lancaster two years ago, will close the event on Sunday evening.

As well as the live music, the daytime will see other activities such as live art, a silent disco and walking theatre performers.

The festival was set up as a tribute to Skiddle promoter Chris Glaba from Sale, who died from cancer in 2016. £1 of every ticket sold will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
