THE HISTORY OF HIGHEST POINT FESTIVAL

Highest Point Festival was set up in 2018 as a tribute to Chris Glaba, who started A Wing alongside Richard Dyer and Jamie Scahill as well as working at Skiddle. Unfortunately, Chris lost his short battle with cancer 2016. Since A Wing started in 2014, an annual music festival at Williamson Park was always in the team’s sights. With the passing of Chris, who was integral in the A Wing and Hacienda Classical events, it became even more of a goal to make it happen. The Chris Glaba Memorial Stage has been named in his honour. Highest Point’s ultimate goal is to create a legacy music festival, to join all of the other amazing events that happen in the city, that the people of Lancaster can be proud of.
