Hello, hello, we’re back again with Essential Listening! Only this time, we’re putting a little spin on things.

Highest Point Festival returns to Lancaster’s Williamson Park, kicking it all off on Thursday 11th May. Taking ravers old and young, indie kids, 2-steppers, sunny reggae fans, DnB heads, disco divas, families, and everyone in between on a multi-genre musical journey to officially open the festival season, it’s going to be mega. 

We’ve got some cracking names to look forward to including headliners Hacienda Classical, Bastille, and Anne-Marie. Joining them is Sigma, Sub Focus, Elvana, K-Klass, Craig Charles, Charlie Tee, General Levy, Friendly Fires, Goddard, and so many more. Check out the full lineup below. 


To get us all giddy for unreal live music, pub quizzes, unreal world food, The Big Family Day Out, and all sorts of other glorious events, we put together Essential Listening: Highest Point Edition so you can start learning the words to the tracks you’ll be belting at the top of your lungs.
