First Light Festival are thrilled to announce this year’s full line-up & event programme spanning music, art & culture, comedy, science and much more, returning to Lowestoft’s South Beach across Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June 2024.
Championing local and emerging talent alongside international artists with inclusivity and
sustainability at its heart, First Light is making its name as the ultimate showcase for cosmopolitan creative talent, accessible to all. This year sees First Light shine a light and showcase a programme of incredible female-led talent including headliners, DJ and broadcaster Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, one of the country’s finest comedians Shaparak Khorsandi and award-winning poet Hollie McNish.
2024 also sees the first partnership with Latitude festival, whereby one chosen act from those
selected to perform on the New Dawn stage at First Light, will be given the opportunity to also perform at Latitude festival.
This year’s festival takes inspiration from the Cardinal Points to allow a strong focus on the most easterly location. The theme of north, south, east and west will be threaded through the artistic programme.
The festival timings are from 12pm noon to sundown (9.30pm) on Saturday, and from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, with a Dawn sunrise programme from 3.30am on Sunday morning. Additional Saturday late-night events will take the celebration to the Seagull Theatre, East Point Pavilion, Royal Norfolk and Suffolk Yacht Club and Mossy’s nightclub.
