Lytham Festival announce first headliner

    Courteeners will head to Lytham Festival in 2024 for their one and only North of England show of the summer.

    The Manchester-based guitar band are the first headliner to be announced as the North West’s biggest live music festival prepares to return for five unforgettable nights from Wednesday 03 to Sunday 07 July.

    One of the most successful UK bands of the last 15 years, Courteeners – made up of Liam Fray, Michael Campbell and Daniel Moores – will bring their unmissable show to Lytham Green on Friday July 05.

    They will be joined with support from English pop-rock outfit The Kooks and indie pop riser Nieve Ella.

    Tickets for Courteeners go on general sale at 9.30am on Friday November 24.

    Frontman Liam Fray said:

    “We are very much looking forward to making our debut and joining the illustrious list of acts that have performed at the Lytham festival. We made the short pilgrimage from Manchester last year to watch The Strokes and were blown away by the buzz of the locals and the beauty of the scenery.

    Formed in 2006 and lauded by Q Magazine as one of “the world’s biggest underground acts”, all of Courteeners albums have gone Top 10. Earlier this year, their 2008 debut album St. Jude reached Number 1 for the very first time with its 15th anniversary edition and became the album with the longest time between release and charting at Number 1 in UK chart history. The band also played their third sell out 50,000 capacity headline show at Heaton Park in June to celebrate the anniversary of the album.

    Lytham Festival co-founder Peter Taylor added:

    “Courteeners are without a doubt one of the country’s biggest and best-loved bands

    “This is an exclusive performance for the North of England so if you want to see them next summer you need to head to Lytham Festival.”

    Lytham Festival 2024 returns from Wednesday 03 to Saturday 07 July 2024.
