The final line-up for a musical festival set to take place in Burnley in August has been confirmed. The Towneley Live event will see major bands The Saturdays, Scouting for Girls, N-Dubz, McFly, Fanfair and dance troupe Diversity. Now the organisers of the event, set to take place in Towneley Park on August 13, are crossing their fingers for good weather. With the final line-up now in place they hope the remaining tickets will be snapped up.

A spokesman for organisers Livewyre said plenty of tickets still remained for the summer extravaganza. They said: “The organisation is going well and everything is now in place for the festival. “Ticket sales are doing ok but they’re not quite getting close to a sell-out just yet. More will be sold as we get closer to the event happening. “Now it is just a case of hoping and praying we get some good weather for the day.” Crowds of up to 20,000 are expected for the festival, which has been targeted at younger music fans and families.

Mick Cartledge, Burnley Council’s director of community services, said: “This event will be fantastic for Burnley, providing locals and people from the surrounding areas alike with a unique opportunity to enjoy nationally famous acts in their own town. “This is not only great for local residents but will also bring benefits to local businesses which will benefit from the trade this major event brings in.” The tickets for the event are available online at the Towneley Live website and at HMV and the Mechanics in Burnley
