Lytham Festival Issues Low Ticket Warning

THE Lytham Festival organisers are urging people to secure tickets to the 2018 event now to avoid missing out.  The positive reaction to the 2018 line up has been overwhelming with tickets to all 5 nights of live music being sold at a record rate.

And organisers Cuffe and Taylor have issued a low ticket warning with tickets to see legendary musician Nile Rodgers and his band CHIC, on Saturday, 21 July 2018, now close to selling out.

The surge for tickets is the highest demand Lytham Festival has ever seen following the announcement pop superstars Steps, DJ Pete Tong with the Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley, award winning musician George Ezra and singer  songwriter Emeli Sandé, and the world's most successful classical crossover group Il Divo will all headline along with Nile Rodgers and CHIC.

Festival director Peter Taylor said:- "The reaction to our line up for 2018 has been incredible and I can honestly say we have never seen anything like it. Without a doubt, Nile Rodgers and CHIC is the fastest selling show we have ever had at Lytham Festival. These tickets really have flown out so we are in the position now that we must warn people that if they've not bought them yet, then they really do risk missing out. Tickets to all 5 nights of Lytham Festival are proving incredibly popular and, I know we say it time and time again, but I do anticipate this being Lytham's biggest year to date."

As well as presenting Nile Rodgers and CHIC at Lytham Festival, organisers Cuffe and Taylor are also heading out on a UK tour with the uber cool musician and his disco band.

Peter added:- "Just after we announced the Lytham Festival headliners we also announced a UK tour with Nile Rodgers and CHIC and believe me, people are racing to get tickets to these shows. Nile Rodgers and CHIC are global superstars who are adored by their fans and hailed as innovators by their peers. They promise a night of super disco, hip hop and rock and we can't wait to see this in Lytham and across the UK. So, make sure you don't miss out!"

Lytham Festival 2018 takes place from Wednesday, 18 July to Sunday, 22 July 2018.
