TK Maxx presents Lytham Festival returns for five unforgettable nights on Lytham Green from Wednesday 03 to Sunday 07 July 2024.

Festival co-founder Peter Taylor said: “We have a complete line up and I am delighted. Shania Twain is the Queen of country music. She is a global icon and we cannot wait to welcome her to Lytham Festival. This will be an amazing night and announcing her as our fifth headliner is the icing on the cake for the summer.

“Every headline artist we have on the bill for 2024 is in the top 20 of artists we are repeatedly asked to deliver, and once again we have programmed five very different nights of live music appealing to a very wide audience.

“Alongside our headliners we also have incredible special guests and support artists and to quite literally have the Giant that is Rag’n’Bone Man joining our bill is fantastic.

Shania Twain is a five-time GRAMMY Award-winning legend and one of music and fashion’s most renowned trailblazers.

She remains the top-selling female country pop artist of all time with her hits including Any Man of Mine, That Don’t Impress Me Much, You’re Still the One and Man! I Feel Like A Woman!. Shania was the first artist in history to release three consecutive diamond-certified albums. Most recently, Shania released her sixth full-length album Queen of Me to glowing reviews.  Last spring Shania kicked off her sold-out global Queen of Me tour and she will return to Las Vegas this May for her third residency entitled Come On Over!.

Supporting Shania Twain will be Rag’n’Bone Man – aka Rory Graham. Graham rose to prominence in 2016 with the release of the worldwide smash hit Human which showcased a stunning blend of traditional blues, hip-hop and, of course, an incredible and era-defining voice.

Having won the 2017 BRIT’s ‘British Breakthrough Act’ and receiving the BRIT’s ‘Critics’ Choice Award’ in the same year, Graham cemented his success with the record-breaking release of his 4x platinum Number One debut album Human. A plethora of international accolades followed as well as a further BRIT Award for ‘Best Single of the Year’ in 2018 for Human, an Ivor Novello Award for hit single Giant in 2020 and another #1 album: Life By Misadventure, released in 2021. Since his debut, Rag’n’Bone Man has sold out tours worldwide and has collaborated with international artists including The Gorillaz, Logic, Calvin Harris and P!nk. Rory is currently preparing for his third album with Columbia Records, kicking off with a second collaborative track with Calvin Harris; ‘Lovers in a Past Life’ will be out and kicking off the summer vibes on February 16.

The festival kicks off on Wednesday July 3 with a headlining set from internationally acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Hozier. He is joined by Alabama Shakes frontwoman-turned-solo star Brittany Howard and enigmatic Los Angeles-based indie folk band Lord Huron.

Friday July 5 sees Manchester-based guitar band Courteeners perform their only North of England headline show of the summer with support from English pop-rock outfit The Kooks and indie pop riser Nieve Ella.

Saturday July 6 will see the return of one of the festival’s most popular artists – Madness. They will be supported by another returning artist – pop icon Rick Astley – and Liverpudlian hitmakers Lightning Seeds.

And in a 2024 UK festival exclusive, indie legends James accompanied by the Orca22 Orchestra and the Manchester Inspirational Voices Gospel Choir, will close the festival on Sunday July 07. They will be supported by superstar collaborator and sensational solo artist in his own right, Johnny Marr.

Opening proceedings each night will be DJ Rusty Egan, one of the founders of London’s iconic Blitz Club in the 1970s and 80s.
