Manchester is set to take over a day of a Lancashire music festival this summer. Several acts from the region have been announced at this year’s Lytham Festival, which runs from July 3-7.  

Taking place in the coastal Lancashire town, the four day festival will have headliners including Manchester's own Courteeners and Shania Twain. Madness will also take to the stage in a headliner slot.

The Manchester takeover is set to be on the final day of the festival, which is Sunday July 7. Three of the main acts performing are all from Manchester or the surrounding area, with Oldham-band Inspiral Carpets one of the trio. 

Former guitarist for The Smiths Johnny Marr is another Mancunian announced for the festival. Marr was most recently in the headlines for his anger towards ex-US President Donald Trump using The Smiths song Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want during a campaign rally in South Dakota. 

Headlining on the same day as Johnny Marr and Inspiral Carpets will be rock band James. This will be an orchestral performance, and it will also be a UK festival exclusive for this. They will also be joined on stage by the Manchester Inspirational Voices Choir.
