Event Details

Saturday July 06 will see the return of one of Lytham Festival’s most popular artists – Madness.

Pop’s Nutty Boys headlined Lytham back in 2017. In a career spanning five decades they have chalked up 15 UK Top 10 singles – including the timeless Our House, It Must Be Love, One Step Beyond, My Girl, Wings Of A Dove and Baggy Trousers – together with ten Top 10 albums. This month they released Theatre of the Absurd Presents C’est la Vie, their critically acclaimed lucky thirteenth full-length album.

They will be supported by another returning artist – pop icon Rick Astley. It’s 11 years since he performed on Lytham Green and almost 40 years since he first shot to fame, but Rick Astley is now arguably a more prominent force in popular culture than he ever was. Continuing to win the adoration of fans old and new, recent years have seen him perform with Foo Fighters, Take That and Blossoms. Rick recently released his ninth studio album Are We There Yet? and since returning to the Number One spot in 2016 with album 50, he has enjoyed the strongest run of album chart positions of his entire career.

Joining Madness and Rick Astley will be Liverpudlian hitmakers Lightning Seeds. It is 35 years since they first hit the charts and the Lytham audience can expect to singalong to a string of hits including Life of Riley, Lucky You and football anthem Three Lions.
