7th Annual Lancaster Music Festival

8th to 12th October 2015 - Lancaster's own bank holiday weekend*

We’d like to thank the nearly 40,000 festivalgoers who flocked to Lancaster City centre for our first ever unofficial Bank Holiday Music Festival weekend last October. We were astounded that even with ongoing major city centre construction (now mercifully completed) attendance was even greater than last year’s record turnout.

None of this would be possible of course without nearly 200 hardworking performers, over 40 venues and our many sponsors, partners and able and willing volunteers helping a tiny festival committee pull off Lancaster’s biggest festival yet.

There were more outdoor events, more international artists, and for the first time in a 1000 years we had public concerts in Lancaster Castle’s historic courtyard.

Thanks to this success we’re able to grow the event even more for 2015.

Over the coming months our small but dedicated team are preparing for the big push late next spring. In the meantime our website will display information from the 2014 festival.

*We can reliably state that the banks actually will be open on the Monday.
