Boyband Reconnected and teen pop idol Elyar Fox are the latest hot acts to confirm they will play what is shaping up to be the best Lytham Proms Festival yet.

The talented UK youngsters - tipped for great things in the music industry - have been added to the line-up for the big Sunday evening finale of the three-day summer musical extravaganza.

Lytham Proms Festival Weekend runs from August 2-4 on Lytham Green, with three nights of music programmed to attract a wide range of concert-goers.

Headlining the final night is Brit Award nominee and number one-selling artist Rita Ora, with guests Conor Maynard and Stooshe.

Supporting them will be Manchester boyband Reconnected, who first made a name for themselves in 2010 as finalists on ITV show Britain’s Got Talent.

They stormed the show with covers of Backstreet Boys I Want It That Way and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and received rave reviews from the panel.

Now reformed as a three-piece, brothers Max and Harry and their pal Matt have been working on an album with acclaimed writer and producer Tim Woodcock.

Earlier this year, the boys supported X Factor winners Little Mix on their national tour. The group’s first single, One In A Million went top 40 and their follow up second single is due out in September.

Joining them will be 17-year-old sensation Elyar Fox, from London. The talented singer, who also plays the guitar, has been likened to pop idol Justin Bieber.

Peter Taylor, festival director at Blackpool-based Cuffe & Taylor, said: “The line-up for this year’s event just keeps getting better and better.

“Our aim is to have something for everyone over the weekend and Reconnected and Elyar will certainly appeal to pop fans in the audience. They are young, fresh, talented artists and are destined for big success in the pop world.

“It really does promise to be a fantastic final festival evening and a fitting climax to what we hope will be the best festival weekend yet.”
