The first-ever dance night at the rebranded Lytham Festival proved to be a sell-out success as thousands of music lovers enjoyed a taste of Ibiza on the Fylde coast.

You could have been mistaken for thinking you were actually on the White Isle as weather with more of a Balearic feel came to Lytham Green.

Blue skies and a warm climate welcomed a crowd featuring a mix of ages to enjoy entertainment from some of dance’s biggest stars.

Fresh from BBC Radio One’s Ibiza Weekend, DJ Danny Howard, the Blackpool local lad done good, treated fans to an early set.

Tracks from his famed Saturday Dance Anthems slot got the crowd warmed up, before entertainers Pendulum left ravers wanting more with a superb set from their back catalogue.

Tracks including Propane Nightmares brought a lively edge to proceedings, before the main event arrived with dance legends Faithless.

The group, celebrating two decades in the business, rolled back the years with a standout performance on a stunning night of entertainment to kick the arena stage events off in style.

For those wanting more, DJ favourite Chicane wowed a sell-out crowd at a Lowther Pavilion after party.

Shows including 80s vs 90s tonight, McBusted tomorrow and Songs From Stage And Screen on Sunday are still to come, but after last night’s entertainment, dance is surely here to stay at the Lytham Festival.
