ORGANISERS of Live at Lydiard have announced the festival will return this summer.

But the event, which saw Anne-Marie, Dizzee Rascal and Clean Bandit entertain 10,000 people at its debut last summer will be moving from Lydiard Park 'just across the road' to Lydiard Tregoze. 

The festival was well received by people in the town last August despite the main stage having to be fully evacuated for safety reasons as a thunderstorm loomed overhead.

But after an hour's delay performances were able to continue.

The people of Swindon have also been promised an 'even bigger line-up', the return of the dance tent, a boutique cocktail bar, a food court and more. 

The festival says that its move - within 'the heart of Lydiard' - means that it can increase capacity this year from 10,000 to 15,000. It also says that the increased space will mean a better experience for festival goers. 

A spokesperson from Live at Lydiard said: “It’s so exciting to be back this year, with an even bigger and better version of Live at Lydiard.

"Our mission remains the same as always: to provide a truly unique and groundbreaking festival experience to the south west with the best local and international acts in the game.”
