Since hitting the music scene in 1989, Lightning Seeds have experienced national and international success with their songs featuring in the UK and US music charts.

They made it big with hits including “Football’s coming home”, “Pure”, “Lucky you” and “The life of Riley”.

They also received national acclaim following their collaboration with David Baddiel and Frank Skinner with their single “Three Lions”, which reached number 1 in the UK charts in both 1996 and 1998.

Lightning Seeds are sure to set the mood for festival goers at Middlewich FAB Festival’s Friday night concert.
