The North Lancs Soul Festival is a celebration of Soul Music in all its genres and this year’s Festival will mark the 12th staging of this Soul-packed weekend in the seaside resort of Morecambe in North Lancashire.

Held in Smokey O’Connors ‘Temple Of Soul’ this three roomed event features 30+ of the UK’s top national DJ’s who will be bringing you across the board Soul music from the cool choons of the 60’s through to hot modern soul vibes of the current day.   They’ll bring you Modern soul, Northern Soul, 70’s Crossover, Motown, Funk, Soulful House and Dance plus Contemporary releases all reflecting the diversity of the current UK Soul scene - and in our ‘Collectors Room’ we encourage our DJ’s to dig out some lesser played choons ‘from the back of their box’!
