Legendary Joy Division and New Order bass player Peter Hook says he is looking forward to re-visiting some teenage haunts during the Lytham Festival.

Hooky will be performing as part of the Haçienda Classical’s show, which headlines the main arena on August 3.

The last two times I was in Lytham were very interesting

He said: “The last two times I was in Lytham were very interesting.

“On the first we went on a scooter trip and slept behind a cafe on the seafront and when I woke up I saw a UFO.

“The second I slept in a car park after getting wasted at Tiffany’s in Blackpool because we couldn’t drive home.

“I expect nothing less from my next trip to Lytham with the wonderful Haçienda Classical!”

The critically acclaimed show, which has been a smash hit with dance and classical fans young and old since its debut last year, sees FAC 51’s original DJ partnership Graeme Park and Mike Pickering reinterpret the seminal dance classics which shaped the original club alongside Manchester Camerata, conductor Tim Crooks
