Morecambe Music Festival hailed ‘biggest and best yet’

Thousands of people flocked to dozens of venues over the weekend for the Morecambe Music Festival.

Around 175 acts performed across 38 venues as part of the sixth annual Morecambe Music Festival.

The live music extravaganza took place in pubs, cafes, hotels and other venues across the town, with thousands enjoying acts from genres including rock, pop, soul, country, hip-hop, reggae, indie, ska, punk, Irish music, acoustic, DJs, tribute acts, ukulele, 40s wartime songs and even a sea shanty crew!

Founder Stuart Michaels and Beyond Radio's Greg Lambert reflect on the success of the festival:

Stuart Michaels, the Morecambe singer and promoter who founded the festival in 2017, said: "Every year we seem to grow and develop the festival to reach new heights and we will strive to continue with that over the coming years.

"I'm extremely proud of the amazing team I have around me who work so hard to help organise it all.''

"I'm also very proud to say we are a self-funded festival and with that very very grateful to all our amazing sponsors who help fund this event. Without them it wouldn't be possible. A big tip of the hat to our venues who make the choice to be part of this community-based music weekend.

"We always aim to give the best experience possible and to raise the bar each year. There's nothing better than watching people enjoying themselves in that second week in July.''
