A fresh wave of artists has been released for this year’s Highest Point festival in Lancaster.

Following on from the reveal of their Friday and Saturday Headliners - Rudimental and Rag’n’Bone Man - organisers have announced loads of new acts, including Lancaster’s The Lovely Eggs, and Manchester’s Riot Jazz.

The festival, which takes place between May 15 and 17 in Williamson Park, also now welcomes London based rapper Ms Banks, Ragga DJ General Levy, and Red Light Radio’s head honcho Orpheu the Wizard to their DJ focused line-up on Friday May 15.

Also on the Friday there’ll be a flavour of the Ibiza party overlooking Morecambe Bay, with Do Not Sleep, Seb Zito, East End Dubs and Josh Butler, joining house music veterans Danny Howells, Dave Seaman and Darren Emerson as 3D who will perform in front of the Ashton Memorial.
