How did it all get started
The festival has been set up 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 last year.
The 5th Dec has been chosen to announce the first artists as it?s the one-year anniversary of the passing of our friend and colleague, Chris, who died at the young age of 27.
Since we started A Wing in 2014, an annual music festival at Williamson Park was always in our sights. Since the passing of Chris last year, who was integral in the A Wing and Hacienda Classical event, it became even more of a goal to make it happen. We want 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.
