The 9th Lancaster Music Festival is last than a week away but here’s to the glorious 10th.
Now in its 9th year, the Lancaster Music Festival is about to fill the venues and open spaces of Lancaster with music and merriment. Each year the annual October festival improves on the last (as attested by so many festival goers).
In anticipation of the 10th Lancaster Music Festival the team has decided to spend a fallow year (2018) preparing for a festival of festivals in 2019. Each year the festival appears to run like clockwork but only because of intense and meticulous planning and preparation over the preceding 12 months. So 9 years of almost continuous planning has, as you might expect, depleted our reserves and a fallow year is unavoidable. This follows in the proud traditions of other festivals such as Glastonbury.
Lancaster Music CIC (the community interest company behind LMF) will continue to organise and collaborate on live music events through 2018 while we renew and seek new financial backing for the festival in 2019.
We would encourage festival goers to make the most of this year’s 5 days of back-to-back and wall-to-wall live music events, utilising our Official Guide, Festival App and website; Take Monday Off and keep October 2019 open for the glorious 10th.
