"She is a global icon and we cannot wait to welcome her to TK Maxx presents Lytham Festival.

"This will be an amazing night and announcing her as our fifth headliner is the icing on the cake for the summer."

She was the first artist in history to release three consecutive diamond-certified albums.

Most recently, Shania released her sixth full-length album Queen of Me to glowing reviews.

Supporting Shania Twain will be Rag'n'Bone Man – aka Rory Graham.

Graham rose to prominence in 2016 with the release of the worldwide smash hit Human which showcased a stunning blend of traditional blues, hip-hop and, of course, an incredible and era-defining voice.

"Every headline artist we have on the bill for 2024 is in the top 20 of artists we are repeatedly asked to deliver, and once again we have programmed five very different nights of live music appealing to a very wide audience," Peter added.

Lytham Festival returns for five unforgettable nights on Lytham Green from Wednesday July 3 to July 7.
