Highest Point, Lancaster’s biggest music festival that welcomed over 20,000 happy people in its first year, returns from the 17th – 19th May 2019.

Now in its second year, the city’s largest and most popular music festival will welcome some of its most established names to date.

Disco royalty Sister Sledge, famed for their hits ‘We Are Family’ and ‘Lost In Music’, will turn Williamson Park into one big dance floor, whilst indie-rockers The Zutons will hit crowds with some nostalgia. Welsh rockers Feeder are lined up, with hip-hop authority Grandmaster Flash also set for a live performance. BBC Introducing will be returning, bringing with them some of the finest up-and-coming acts from the area and beyond.

2018’s edition saw the park burst to life with a fusion of live music and DJ sets, and this year will be the same, but with extended hours on the Friday and Saturday, with five stages of music from 11am-11pm, followed by a family day on Sunday 19th May.

Following on from the first wave line up announcement for Highest Point Festival, the dance music and DJ billing has been unveiled, which will see some of the biggest names from across the house, techno, bass and disco spectrum take to Williamson Park in Lancaster on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May.

The Dell stage, a natural amphitheatre deep in the woods, will be at the forefront of the festival’s dance offerings, hosting Saved Records boss Nic Fanciulli and house wizard James Zabiela as headliners on the Friday. Whilst on the Saturday, co-founder and CEO of Hospital Records London Elektricity will play, with ragga legend General Levy and Dynamite MC also confirmed.

Funk and boogie lovers rejoice, as Gin & Disco will be hosting a stage at Highest Point. The touring party will take over a unique space within the park, with views across the lake and waterfall. On Friday you can catch reel-to-reel pioneer Greg Wilson and Glitterbox favourite Hifi Sean behind the decks, whilst on Saturday, Mighty Mouse, Get Down Edits and Derek Kaye will all bring their disco stylings.

The Sundial Stage, with amazing views over Morecambe Bay, is another party haven which will host Juice Box presents Jinx in Dub b2b Gella on Friday, and Escape presents Judge Jules on the Saturday.

The dance and DJ names join an already existing strong line up featuring Sister Sledge, The Zutons, Feeder, Cabbage, Grandmaster Flash and more.
