Last night (Sunday, July 2) saw a crowd of 22,500 enjoy the biggest rock night in the Festival’s history when heavy metal legends Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe rocked the Fylde coast before bringing the curtain down on this year’s record-breaking festivities.
Around 100,000 people gathered on Lytham Green to watch 20 acts over the 5-day festival with boasted headliner sets from the 80s rockers as well as Sting, Lionel Richie, Jamiroquai and George Ezra.
“What a beautiful audience!”, Sting told the crowd while Def Leppard teased a return to the Festival, saying, “‘Til next time…and there will be a next time!”
Lionel Ritchie was also full of praise for the Lytham crowd. “That’s how you do it. I wanna take this crowd around the world with me!,” said the 74-year-old music legend.
This year’s star-studded line-up also included support sets from Blondie, Kaiser Chiefs, Gabrielle, Scissor Sisters’ frontman Jake Shears, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Cat Burns and Kim Wilde.
