“George Ezra is, without a doubt, one of the most talented and coolest musicians of the moment, while Emeli Sandé has the most incredible voice and talent.

“We are thrilled to welcome them to Lytham Festival and to have Rae Morris as support is fantastic as she is from just down the road in Blackpool.”

Today’s announcement comes as George Ezra, who rose to prominence with the release of hit single Budapest in 2014, following two EPs Did You Hear The Rain and Cassy O’,  is enjoying huge success with new single Paradise just weeks ahead of the release of his second album Staying at Tamara’s.

The 24-year-old has enjoyed three sold out tours, four Brit Award nominations, one BBC Music Award and an Ivor Novello Award. His 2014 debut album Wanted on Voyage spent four weeks in the number one spot and a total of 122 weeks on the charts.

Emeli Sandé burst onto the scene in 2009 with Top 10 hit Diamond Rings, her collaboration with Chipmunk. She scored further chart success with DJ and rapper Naughty Boy before claiming her first number one - the smash-hit Read All About It with Professor Green.

Her multi-platinum-selling debut album Our Version of Events, which featured the singles Next To Me, My Kind of Love and Clown, catapulted her to worldwide acclaim, while her Live At The Albert Hall album topped the charts and was followed in 2016 with second album Long Live The Angels.

Blackpool-born Rae Morris enjoyed a Top 10 hit with UK debut album Unguarded in 2015. She releases second album Someone Out There, featuring the singles Reborn, Do It and Altetico (The Only One) tomorrow (FRIDAY Feb 2).
