Lancaster Music Festival ready to rock the city


Excitement is building for the return of Lancaster Music Festival this week.
The city's big live music extravaganza, returning in 2019 after a year's absence, will see more than 400 performances from over 250 acts at more than 30 venues across the city starting this Thursday (October 10) and running until Monday (October 14).
Many of the gigs in the city's pubs, cafes, coffee shops, bookshops and banks are completely free, and there will also be street theatre, dance displays, workshops for families, exhibitions, talks and much more.
The official launch party will be held at Lancaster Brewery, Lancaster Leisure Park, this Wednesday (October 9) from 9pm. Admission is free. There will be live music from Sold to the Sky.
There has been high demand for tickets at the festival's three main stage shows.
Friday night's event at The Sugarhouse - headlined by Carnforth rockers Massive Wagons - and Saturday and Sunday night's gigs at the new Kanteena venue in Lancaster headlined by Lowes and The Lovely Eggs respectively, are all sold out.
