First Light Festival is a brand new FREE 24-hour multi-arts festival for the UK, celebrating Lowestoft as our most easterly town, where the first sunrise reaches the horizon every morning.
First Light Festival runs continuously across the summer solstice weekend, from midday on Saturday the 22nd of June, through to midday on Sunday the 23rd. Join us on Lowestoft South Beach through changing tides, light and darkness, sun and stars for a unique shared experience with music, dance, film, talks, walks, sports and workshops as well as the best local and regional food, drinks and produce. Our festival site extends out across the promenades and gardens to offer arts, activities and entertainment in a beautiful seaside setting.
Headliners include celebrated tabla player and Mercury award-winning musician Talvin Singh and brilliantly eclectic BBC 6Music radio presenter and international club DJ Gilles Peterson.
