Manchester band the Courteeners have been announced as the first headliners of this year’s Lytham Festival in Lancashire.
The festival will take place over five nights, from Wednesday 3 July to Sunday 7 July, in Lytham St Anne’s on the banks of the Ribble Estuary.
Courteeners will be performing on Friday 5 July, supported by 2000s indie stars The Kooks and emerging artist Nieve Ella. This will be the Courteener’s only northern show this summer.
The rest of the festival’s lineup is due to be announced at 8am on Monday 27 November
Speaking about the announcement, 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. What a Friday it’s going to be on July 5th. See you down the front, x”
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.”
