 Lancaster’s Highest Point Festival announces dance music line-up

Following on from the first wave line-up announcement for Highest Point Festival, the dance music and DJ billing has been unveiled, which will see some of the biggest names from across the house, techno, bass and disco spectrum take to Williamson Park in Lancaster on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May.

The Dell stage, a natural amphitheatre deep in the woods, will be at the forefront of the festival’s dance offerings, hosting Saved Records boss Nic Fanciulli and house wizard (and friend of Highest Point) James Zabiela as headliners on the Friday.

Whilst on the Saturday, co-founder and CEO of Hospital Records London Elektricity finally makes it to Lancaster with Hospitality up-and-comer Whiney, with ragga legend General Levy and Dynamite MC also confirmed.

Funk and boogie lovers rejoice, as Gin & Disco will be hosting a stage at Highest Point.

The touring party will take over a unique space within the park, with views across the lake and waterfall.

On Friday you can catch reel-to-reel pioneer Greg Wilson and Glitterbox favourite Hifi Sean behind the decks, whilst on Saturday, Mighty Mouse, Get Down Edits and Derek Kaye will all bring their disco stylings.

The Sundial Stage, with amazing views over Morecambe Bay, is another party haven which will host Juice Box presents Jinx in Dub b2b Gella on Friday, and Escape presents Judge Jules on the Saturday.

The dance and DJ names join an already existing strong line up featuring Sister Sledge, The Zutons, Feeder, Cabbage, Grandmaster Flash and more.

Organised by the team that brought about A Wing at Lancaster Castle and the sell-out Hacienda Classical show, the festival is inspired by the team’s close friend Chris Glaba, who sadly passed away in 2016.

The festival will also be fundraising for Macmillan, a charity very close to their heart.

Tickets for Highest Point are available from Skiddle now.
