TK Maxx presents Lytham Festival returns for five unforgettable nights on Lytham Green from Wednesday 03 to Sunday 07 July 2024.

Festival co-founder Peter Taylor said: “We have a complete line up and I am delighted. Shania Twain is the Queen of country music. She is a global icon and we cannot wait to welcome her to TK Maxx presents Lytham Festival. This will be an amazing night and announcing her as our fifth headliner is the icing on the cake for the summer.

“Every headline artist we have on the bill for 2024 is in the top 20 of artists we are repeatedly asked to deliver, and once again we have programmed five very different nights of live music appealing to a very wide audience.

“Alongside our headliners we also have incredible special guests and support artists and to quite literally have the Giant that is Rag’n’Bone Man joining our bill is fantastic.”

Shania Twain is a five-time GRAMMY Award-winning legend and one of music and fashion’s most renowned trailblazers.

She remains the top-selling female country pop artist of all time with her hits including Any Man of Mine, That Don’t Impress Me Much, You’re Still the One and Man! I Feel Like A Woman!. Shania was the first artist in history to release three consecutive diamond-certified albums. Most recently, Shania released her sixth full-length album Queen of Me to glowing reviews. Last spring Shania kicked off her sold-out global Queen of Me tour and she will return to Las Vegas this May for her third residency entitled Come On Over!

Supporting Shania Twain will be Rag’n’Bone Man – aka Rory Graham. Graham rose to prominence in 2016 with the release of the worldwide smash hit Human which showcased a stunning blend of traditional blues, hip-hop and, of course, an incredible and era-defining voice.

Having won the 2017 BRIT’s ‘British Breakthrough Act’ and receiving the BRIT’s ‘Critics’ Choice Award’ in the same year, Graham cemented his success with the record-breaking release of his 4x platinum Number One debut album Human.

A plethora of international accolades followed as well as a further BRIT Award for ‘Best Single of the Year’ in 2018 for Human, an Ivor Novello Award for hit single Giant in 2020 and another #1 album: Life By Misadventure, released in 2021. Since his debut, Rag’n’Bone Man has sold out tours worldwide and has collaborated with international artists including The Gorillaz, Logic, Calvin Harris and P!nk. Rory is currently preparing for his third album with Columbia Records, kicking off with a second collaborative track with Calvin Harris; ‘Lovers in a Past Life’ will be out and kicking off the summer vibes on February 16.

TK Maxx presents Lytham Festival 2024 kicks off on Wednesday July 03 with a headlining set from internationally acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Hozier. He is joined by Alabama Shakes frontwoman-turned-solo star Brittany Howard and enigmatic Los Angeles-based indie folk band Lord Huron.
Friday July 05 sees Manchester-based guitar band Courteeners perform their only North of England headline show of the summer with support from English pop-rock outfit The Kooks and indie pop riser Nieve Ella.

Saturday July 06 will see the return of one of TK Maxx presents Lytham Festival’s most popular artists – Madness. They will be supported by another returning artist – pop icon Rick Astley – and Liverpudlian hitmakers Lightning Seeds.

And in a 2024 UK festival exclusive, indie legends James accompanied by the Orca22 Orchestra and the Manchester Inspirational Voices Gospel Choir, will close the festival on Sunday July 07. They will be supported by superstar collaborator and sensational solo artist in his own right, Johnny Marr.

Opening TK Maxx presents Lytham Festival 2024 each night will be DJ Rusty Egan, one of the founders of London’s iconic Blitz Club in the 1970s and 80s.

For the first time, TK Maxx will join Lytham Festival as presenting partner, as part of a new agreement with Cuffe & Taylor shows across the country including Scarborough Open Air Theatre, Live at The Piece Hall, Derby Summer Sessions, Depot Live, Plymouth Summer Sessions, Bedford Summer Sessions, Southampton Summer Sessions.

MUSIC GREATS COME TOGETHER TO FIGHT FOOD POVERTY

By Rhodes Media BlogsNo Comments

Chart-topping musicians and performers are joining forces and voices to help fight poverty in the North West.

Led by James guitarist Saul Davies and his partner Vanda Guerreiro, more than 15 artists will perform for MUSIC FEEDS LIVE at O2 Apollo Manchester on Tuesday February 27 to raise money for anti-poverty charity the Trussell Trust.

Artists include James’ Tim Booth, Jim Glennie and Saul Davies, north west post-Britpop band Starsailor, Liverpudlian outfit The Farm, dance music hitmaker Chicane, Manchester rock band Slow Readers Club, indie rockers Lanterns on the Lake, and British Poet Laureate Simon Armitage with his band LYR. Also on the bill are Tom A Smith, Liam Frost, Idol Giants, Cetty, The Reads, Rosellas, First Breath After Coma, Assa and Batfunk and Ellen Beth Abdi.

Football legends Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher will host the event alongside Radio 6 Music presenter Chris Hawkins, while the acclaimed Joe Duddell Orchestra will collaborate with guest stars throughout the night.

Tickets go on general sale at 9am Friday from cuffeandtaylor.com and ticketmaster.co.uk
MUSIC FEEDS LIVE follows the hugely successful Music Feeds two-day online festival held during the lockdown in 2021 which saw a massive £1m raised for food charity Fareshare and cultural support organisations Help Musician and Stagehand, as well as providing 2.4m school meals, in conjunction with The Co-Op. Artists performing for the live stream included James, Liam Gallagher, Fontaines DC, Sam Smith, Blossoms and Beverley Knight.

And now, working with Live Nation promoters Cuffe and Taylor, Saul and Vanda are looking forward to opening the doors to their first ever live Music Feeds show.

Saul said: “Music Feeds Live is about positivity and solidarity. We are giving artists an opportunity to use their voice to generate much needed funds and show support to people living with disadvantage.
“Our aim is to raise £150k for foodbanks across the North West and with the help of the public we can do that. We have a brilliant line-up already, but we also have more names to add to that with some very special guests to be announced soon.”

Dan O’Brien, Network Lead for the North West at the Trussell Trust added: “One in seven people in the UK face hunger because they don’t have enough money to live on. That’s not the kind of society we want to live in, and we won’t stand by and let this continue. Every year we are seeing more and more people needing food banks, and that is just not right.

“Rising hunger and hardship have devastating consequences for individuals and our communities, damage the nation’s health and hold back our economy. People in work, as well as people who cannot work, are increasingly being pushed into debt and forced to turn to a food bank to survive.

“We are grateful to Saul, Vanda, and all the artists and celebrities involved in Music Feeds Live, as well as all of the music fans who will attend the event, for their support. Together, we have roots into hundreds of communities, and while someone facing hunger can’t change the structural issues driving the need for food banks on their own, thousands of us coming together can. We must end hunger across the UK so that no one needs a food bank to survive.”

Seven genre-defining studio albums, including the Gold-certified Surfer Rosa, and the iconic Platinum Doolittle, considered one of the all-time, quintessential alt/rock albums. Their UK Top 30 hits include Velouria, Planet of Sound and Debaser.

After disbanding in 1993, Pixies launched their reunion tour in 2004 and have played to sell-out crowds across the globe ever since. Their last four albums Indie Cindy (2014), Head Carrier (2016), Beneath the Eyrie (2019) and 2022’s brilliant Doggerel served to further cement their legendary status.

Pixies’ live shows are unadulterated magic, simultaneously electrifying and lo-fi with the band playing anything they want – in whatever order they want – from classics to new gems. No two shows are ever the same.

Pixies join Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Richard Ashcroft, Jess Glynne, McFly, Fatboy Slim, Loyle Carner and rock legends Status Quo among the Live at The Piece Hall 2024 headliners – with many more to be announced very soon.
