COSMIC Cape music festival is returning to Capenhurst this summer.

The festival takes place on Saturday, July 20 for its third and biggest year with Lightning Seeds announced as headliners.

Prepare for a bigger Cosmic Cape experience than ever before! The festival has expanded into another giant field at Brook Farm, offering more bars, diverse food vendors, bigger stages, and the most exciting music acts yet.

Get ready for an interstellar line-up! Lightning Seeds, the iconic 90s band known for hits like 'Lucky You' and 'Pure,' will headline the main stage. Joining them are standout acts Pixey and Hooton Tennis Club, highlighting the best talent from the north-west.

With over 20 more acts to announce these artists are only just the beginning.

If the stars align this summer, Cosmic Cape could emerge as the potential celebration ground for an England UEFA Euro 2024 victory. Picture the euphoria if Lightning Seeds play their hit 'Three Lions' just six days after the Euro 2024 final which is on Sunday, July 14.

Cosmic Cape joyfully welcomes Urenco once again as the main sponsor, showcasing their enduring support since the festival's inception in 2022. Adding to the excitement, this year's main stage proudly boasts the title The Urenco Cosmic Cape Main Stage.
