First Light Festival 2022: Your guide to music performances

5 2 24

From honouring Lowestoft's heritage to world-renowned artists, there will be musical performances for everyone at this year's First Light Festival.

With performances split across multiple stages, the festival will showcase a range of talent over the 24-hour event.

To launch the festival, an opening parade 'Winds of Change' will march from Claremont Pier to the Sunlight Stage from 11.30am on Saturday morning, featuring banners made by local schools and the community.

This will be followed by a rousing, large-scale community performance at midday of The Light Returns by local folk musician, John Ward, in celebration of Lowestoft’s history and the joy of open-air singing.

The majority of cross-genre music acts will take place across the 24-hour period on the Sunlight Stage.

Multi-award winning group Slide Action Trombone Quartet will take to the stage at 1pm on Saturday, followed by The Kosmos Ensemble at 1.45pm, who will be playing a combination of tango, jazz, gypsy, Balkan and music from the Far East.

The winner of the festival's New Dawn callouts Mosiah Levi will perform a short set at 2.45pm, before Nic Pendlebury performs his critically acclaimed transcription of Steve Reich's Electric Counterpoint at 3.15pm.
