In What's On

Highest Point Festival is this weekend in Lancaster! With the site build shaping up nicely, Williamson Park is readying itself for a jam-packed three days of music and arts across Friday 17th to Sunday 19th May.

Dust off your dancing shoes... disco royalty Sister Sledge, famed for their hits ‘We Are Family’ and ‘Lost In Music’, will turn Williamson Park into one big dancefloor, whilst indie-rockers The Zutons will hit crowds with some nostalgia. Welsh rockers Feeder are lined up, with hip-hop authority Grandmaster Flash also set for a live performance. BBC Introducing will be returning, bringing with them some of the finest up-and-coming acts from the area and beyond including
CABBAGE, Anna Calvi and Charlotte OC.

The Dell stage, a natural amphitheatre deep in the woods, will be at the forefront of the festival’s dance offerings, hosting Saved Records boss Nic Fanciulli and house wizard (and friend of Highest Point) James Zabiela as headliners on the Friday. Whilst on the Saturday, co-founder and CEO of Hospital Records London Elektricity finally makes it to Lancaster with Hospitality up-and-comer Whiney, with ragga legend General Levy and Dynamite MC also confirmed.

Funk and boogie lovers rejoice, as Gin & Disco will be hosting a stage at Highest Point sponsored by Booths. The touring party will take over a unique space within the park, with views across the lake and waterfall. On Friday you can catch reel-to-reel pioneer Greg Wilson and Glitterbox favourite Hifi Sean behind the decks, whilst on Saturday, Mighty Mouse, Get Down Edits and Derek Kaye will all bring their disco stylings.

Set times have now been confirmed, with five stages of music from 11:30am-11pm.

The family Sunday day has now sold out, but you can still grab tickets for Friday and Saturday on Skiddle and at

Festival organiser Jamie Scahill said: “The site is looking better than ever, and the weather looks to be on our side, we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Williamson Park for one of the most memorable weekends of the whole year.”
Highest Point Festival recently gave away 1000 tickets to local emergency services, meaning that the police, fire, NHS, ambulance, coast guard & RNLI are able to let their hair down and enjoy one of Lancaster’s most glorious spots.

Organised by the team that brought about A Wing at Lancaster Castle and the sell-out Hacienda Classical show, the festival is inspired by the team’s close friend Chris Glaba, who sadly passed away in 2016. The festival will also be fundraising for Macmillan, a charity very close to their heart.

We look forward to seeing you this weekend!
