Highest Point concludes with over 15,000 people attending
Sister Sledge and The Zutons wowed crowds at Williamson Park with more than 15,000 people flooding into Williamson Park for Lancaster’s Highest Point Festival. Some of the biggest talent Lancaster had ever seen made their way to the park to experience music from 110 artists across five stages.
Further enhancing its standing in the festival circuit, the stages this year had been transformed by standout production. From disco balls and gorgeous greenery in the Gin & Disco area, to a swooping multi coloured canopy over The Dell’s natural amphitheatre, no detail had been spared to make this a truly unforgettable experience.
The weather was on our side all weekend, with hundreds of attendees relaxing and basking in the sun whilst taking in the music from the likes of Lucy Spraggan, Grandmaster Flash and Charlotte OC, Stealing Sheep and Twisted Wheel.
The headliners lived up to all expectations with Sister Sledge, dressed in sequins, working their way through their classics. The Zutons proved why they’re still at the top of their game, with a mesmerising performance partnered with some of their most recognisable songs. This year’s festival saw a sold-out Family Fun Day on Sunday, with arts, crafts and more live performances from some great BBC Introducing artists including The Hara and The Lottery Winners. The site was a whirlwind of colour, with tonnes of activities suitable for little ones and their music loving parents and carers.
There was also a lively after party in The Dell on Sunday night, as the festival went out on a high with K-Klass providing the tunes at one of the most popular areas of this year’s event.
Jamie Scahill, co-founder of Highest Point said: “What an amazing weekend we’ve had at Williamson Park. We saw over 15,000 smiling faces over the three days and we’d like to thank everybody who came and danced with us.”
