Lineup and Details for Highest Point Festival

Highest Point Festival returns to Lancaster’s glorious Williamson Park on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May for another jam-packed weekend of music and arts.

Now in its second year, the city's largest and most popular music festival will welcome some of its most established names to date.

Disco royalty Sister Sledge, famed for their hits ‘We Are Family’ and ‘Lost In Music’, will turn Williamson Park into one big dance floor, whilst indie-rockers The Zutons will hit crowds with some nostalgia. Welsh rockers Feeder are lined up, with hip-hop authority Grandmaster Flash also set for a live performance. BBC Introducing will be returning, bringing with them some of the finest up-and-coming acts from the area and beyond.

2018’s edition saw the park burst to life with a fusion of live music and DJ sets, and this year will be the same, but with extended hours on the Friday and Saturday, with five stages of music from 11am-11pm, followed by a family day on Sunday 19th May.

Following on from the first wave line up announcement for Highest Point Festival, the dance music and DJ billing has been unveiled, which will see some of the biggest names from across the house, techno, bass and disco spectrum take to Williamson Park in Lancaster on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May.

The Dell stage, a natural amphitheatre deep in the woods, will be at the forefront of the festival’s dance offerings, hosting Saved Records boss Nic Fanciulli and house wizard James Zabiela as headliners on the Friday. Whilst on the Saturday, co-founder and CEO of Hospital Records London Elektricity will play, with ragga legend General Levy and Dynamite MC also confirmed.

Funk and boogie lovers rejoice, as Gin & Disco will be hosting a stage at Highest Point. The touring party will take over a unique space within the park, with views across the lake and waterfall. On Friday you can catch reel-to-reel pioneer Greg Wilson and Glitterbox favourite Hifi Sean behind the decks, whilst on Saturday, Mighty Mouse, Get Down Edits and Derek Kaye will all bring their disco stylings.

The Sundial Stage, with amazing views over Morecambe Bay, is another party haven which will host Juice Box presents Jinx in Dub b2b Gella on Friday, and Escape presents Judge Jules on the Saturday.

I'm still a bit confused. How can I get help

No problem! Come to the festival and our trained customer service personnel will assist you during the entire festival. You’ll see, it’s actually quite simple!

Can my movement be tracked with RFID technology?

No, it can’t. The RFID wristbands will not be equipped with GPS technology and therefore it will be impossible to track your movement.

Can lost or stolen cards be tracked?

Please keep in mind that your card is similar to cash, if you lose it, you can’t get it back. This means we can issue a new card, but your credit will be lost. None of your personal data is stored on the card, so don't worry about that.

What's so great about these wristbands?

RFID wristbands/cards present many great benefits to YOU. You’ll save loads of time as RFID significantly reduces queues at vendors and bars. Also, you won’t have to worry about counting and keeping track of cash or tokens or waiting for your card transaction to be accepted. You can enjoy the pools without worrying about keeping your money safe in a locker and have all your credit with you at all times. It’s also super easy to use and completely waterproof!

Can I invite my friends by paying for their goods?

Of course! Your friends will be more than happy for you to buy them a drink with your wristband/card.

How do I keep track of my balance?

You will be able to check the balance of your wristband/card whenever you want, at any bar, vendor, Top-up booths, or customer Service point. Simply ask for a balance check.

What happens if I run out of credit?

Don’t worry, if you run out, you can always top up...as many times as you’d like, with no additional fee.

How do I put credit on my wristbandcard?

Wait until you’re inside the festival gates and load your wristband/card with credit at any one of the top-up booths.

Can I pay with cash or card instead of with my wristband?

No. Highest Point is a fully cashless festival, which means that the only way of paying for goods is with your wristband/card.

Do I have to use this system?

Yes, Highest Point will be completely free of physical tokens. Bar and vendors will only accept payment made with RFID wristbands.
