Electro Rock powerhouse The Feud will be performing a full live show in the city for the first time in over a year - headlining Lancaster Music Festival’s Saturday show at the castle.

The Feud have picked up the musical mantle after Manchester’s Jeramiah Ferrari dropped out at short notice, leaving the headline slot wide open. Drummer Luke Paget said: “Thanks to Lancaster Music festival for having us on the Castle stage, as it’s the first year it will be held there and being from Lancaster it’s cool to be involved.

“Also it’s our first full electric show in Lancaster for over one and a half years, so we’re looking forward to playing at home again.”

The Feud are expected to release their debut album soon.Another Lancaster act making a welcome return to the city after a year’s hiatus are The Lovely Eggs.

The duo will be performing at The Yorkshire House on Friday October 10.

Singer and guitarist Holly Blackwell said: “ We’re really pleased to be playing the music fest again this year.

“It’s really nice so many bands will be playing out round town and it’s great to see the castle used for more music events.

“There’s so much stuff going on. We only usually play Lancaster once a year so this has now become like our annual outing.

“It might be a bit mental. We’ve got a new single and album coming out next year so we might even play some new tunes.

“Thyme Machine and Rat Bit Kit are also on the bill and they are great so it’s gonna be a cracking night.”

Lancaster Music Festival takes place between October 9 - 13 , featuring over 200 performances at around 40 different venues.

Organiser Ben Ruth has declared the weekend as Lancaster’s Unoffcial Bank Holiday, so if you have any more holidays left, it might be a good idea.

Programmes listing all the shows are available from pubs, shops and businesses now.
