Lancaster's award-winning FREE Music Festival: Welcoming Walkable Wonderful is famous for reflecting the city of Lancaster’s vast musical abundance, excellence and diversity while bringing in top notch acts from around the UK and worldwide. Driven by well over 200 acts performing a wide range of genres, the festival takes place over 5 days at over 40 venues bringing the entire city to life with live music. No wonder the festival is dubbed as Lancaster's Unofficial Bank Holiday weekend!

Live music venues include the main stage at Lancaster Castle, all four of Lancaster's historic outdoor squares, Williamson Park, countless pubs, bars, restaurants, coffee places, theatres, shops, two local breweries and, new for this year two heritage double-decker buses and a flotilla of canal barges.

The festival is FREE TO ATTEND! However, there are several ticketed events and there’s a nominal £2 entry into the Castle main stage (a 2 day unlimited re-entry pass is available for £5).

The family-friendly festival caters for kids of all ages.

Venues will be hosting live music all times of day, with at least two venues with a 24 hour licence. For beer lovers, there is an unofficial Festival Ale specially taste-tested by our festival team. There is also a wide variety of excellent eateries for appetites worked up by wandering from venue to venue, dancing or from general carousing.

For visitors to the city there are plenty of hotels providing overnight accommodation (we advise early booking as rooms tend to sell out fast), as well as a campsite at Lancaster Cricket Ground.

So come along to a huge variety of performances from local, regional, national and international acts. More venues, more acts, more of the time, more music, more madness!

As one of our sponsors put it, “If you can’t find music you like at Lancaster Music Festival you probably don’t like music”.
