Festival director Peter Taylor said: “Lytham Festival 2022 is going to be huge and we can’t wait. We already had first class headliners lined up and now we have added to that bill with one of the most formidable rock bands of our time, The Strokes.

“With three more headliners still to announce we have a very big event in the making for 2022 and look forward to welcoming around 200,000 people to enjoy live music once again on our wonderful Lytham Green.

“Moving to 10 nights means we can bring 10 world-class headliners to our festival so keep your eyes peeled and make sure you don’t miss out on what is going to be a very memorable event.”
