A female-first headline acts line-up at the UK’s only free beachfront festival. Celebrating culture, creativity and community, First Light Festival announced this year’s full line-up & event programme spanning music, art & culture, comedy, science and much more, returning to Lowestoft’s South Beach.

Championing local and emerging talent alongside a plethora of 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 from across the music and entertainment industry with, DJ and broadcaster Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy, one of the country’s finest comedians Shaparak Khorsandi and award-winning poet Hollie McNish.

2024 also sees their 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. As Lowestoft is the most Easterly point of the UK (gaining the first light of the day), this year’s festival takes inspiration from the Cardinal Points to allow a strong focus on our location. The theme of north, south, east and west will be threaded through the artistic programme, with a strong international line-up with a very cosmopolitan flavour.
