A new four-day music festival is raising money for MacMillan Cancer Support.

Promising ‘quality music at an affordable price’, the Fylde Rock And Roots Festival will run at Great Birchwood Country Park, Lytham, from Thursday to Sunday, June 18 to 21.

Festival director Tamsin Porter said: “We are supporting up and coming artists, those with a thriving fan base, and international artists.

“Our headlining acts range from the brilliant Stone Roses tribute The Clone Roses (pictured), and the superb German celtic rock band The Connemara Stone Company, to the critically-acclaimed Manchester-based poet/musician Vinny Peculiar, and a Lithuanian prog rock outfit called The Skys.

“On the acoustic stage, festival goers can bring their instruments along and showcase their talents, as well as hosting solo artists, duos and acoustic bands across the weekend.

“The main stage will be situated in Wild West-themed Fort San Antone saloon. We believe this will be a truly unique experience for festival goers at an affordable price.

“We also feel that this festival will benefit the local economy, bringing in extra tourism to the area.”

Tickets for the festival are now on sale, costing £45 for an adult full weekend pass and £20 for a child’s pass. Under fives go free and day tickets are also available. Visit
