First Light Festival
17-18 June 2023

A Shimmering
Solstice Celebration

First Light marks the first sunrise of midsummer on the UK’s most easterly shores with a celebratory weekend of unique performances and events under the solstice sun. Set amongst the golden sands and lush gardens of Lowestoft’s South Beach, First Light Festival’s outdoor programme is free, unticketed and for all.

Along with our new timings for 2023, we’re introducing Sundown Events – a series of ticketed experiences from Dusk on Saturday that invite you to explore new festival venues off the beach and across the town.

Full Line Up

From Noon
To Moon

The moon churns our waters, the planets dance our earth around the solar system, and the stars inspire us to look up and out beyond our known horizons. This year’s festival explores our relationships to the universe through an imaginative programme of music, installations and community projects.
