Proceeds of an after-party for Lancaster's biggest music festival are destined for Lancaster's homeless, it has been revealed, as tickets go on sale.
The fundraiser party, which will take place on the Saturday night of Lancaster's Highest Point Festival, is a tribute to George Lowery a well loved homeless man of Lancaster.
In Georges honour, Highest Point After Party, will take place at The Park, St. Oswald Street in Lancaster, Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 10 PM - 4 AM, and all profits will go to Lancaster and District Homeless Action Service.
This will be the third consecutive event of its kind with the previous two events raising £1000 each for LDHAS
George Lowery slept under the stars in Williamson Park in Lancaster for the last five years of his life.
He told friends and those who brought him blankets and food in the colder months that he couldn't think of a more beautiful or peaceful place to live. George was sadly found dead by park staff in March 2013. Organiser of the Highest Point After Party, Steven Dobson said, "He was my friend."
The after party is headlined by former Technics / DMC World mixing champion and one of the original Hacienda residents Chad Jackson. Also joining the line up this year they welcome the hugely talented Luksta and to complete this stellar DJ line up is the amazing Bobby Ganoush. The resident DJs for this event are local lads Andy Stoddon, Andy D and Steven Dobson. The chillout area is also being manned by local heros including Steve Jahvis (Daddy1Love), Tim K, Rich Maybury & Anthony Brierly
The party will be set up over two rooms, with the addition this year of a sound system and lighting in the bar area, where there will be a more chilled vibe with the music policy being Madchester style Indie, Motown, Funk, Northern Soul and some down-tempo Balearic house grooves.
