Sought after live music festival, Lancaster's Highest Point has recently announced a fourth additional evening of live music at this year's highly anticipated return edition. 

Set to run over the evening of the final day of the weekend-long event, on Sunday 5th September, the newly added lineup will see world-class live performances from a remarkable selection of some of the industry's biggest, standout names. 

Taking to the stage at the foot of the impressive Ashton Memorial, on the stunning 54-acre grounds of the city's historic Williamson Park, those with tickets will be spoilt to jaw-dropping sets from megastars the likes of '80s baritone wonder, Rick Astley, who will headline proceedings with support from lockdown kitchen disco queen, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and phoney Latino outfit, The Cuban Brothers

On the night, Rick Astley will treat fans to chart-topping hits, 'Never Gonna Give You Up', 'Whenever You Need Somebody', and 'Together Forever', whilst those looking forward to seeing Sophie Ellis-Bextor can expect to hear global bestsellers, 'Groovejet', 'Murder on the Dancefloor' as well as hits from her new album, Songs From The Kitchen Disco

Joining Rick and Sophie, The Cuban Brothers will provide their usual theatrical live show in their customary flamboyant uniform. Blending flavours of hip hop, disco, soul and funk with remarkable B-boy action, outrageous comedy and bouts of sporadic nudity, it's little wonder why these guys continue to sell out shows all over the globe.

The three acts will close a huge weekend of live music at Lancashire’s biggest outdoor music festival, which is set to welcome thirty-five thousand ticket-holders for four days of family-friendly fun.
