The packed Lytham Green crowd played glorious neon tribute to the 80s and 90s last night.

In what’s become one of the Fylde’s biggest party nights, the traditional retro celebration took us back to the decades that style f0 rgot in fine musical style.

The crowd was dressed for the occasion, whether in fancy dress or their best, with some great costumes, including Teletubbies, Freddie Mercury and more.

Venga Boys kicked off the night, followed by three quarters of East 17 and three fifths of 5ive.

And Chesney Hawkes even managed a full set despite his ‘one and only’ hit.

Sinitta provided some much needed girl power on an almost all male line-up, and didn’t fail to disappoint on the outfits front.

With a line up headlined by Billy Ocean, opening with the perfect lyrics ‘one of those nights I feel like getting down’ – and everyone certainly did just that.

His hits Get Out Of My Car and Going Gets Tough plus a great covers’ selection, sent the crowds dancing into the night.

The festival continues tonight with McBusted.
