Festival director Peter Taylor is delighted with the line-up.
"2020 is shaping to be yet another massive year for Lytham Festival," said Peter.
"We had an incredible line-up for 2019 as we celebrated our 10-year anniversary so our mission was to make 2020 even bigger and better, and we believe the festival we have planned will do just that.
"To have Lionel Richie and Westlife on the same bill as Lewis Capaldi and Snow Patrol is incredibly exciting and really does make this our biggest ever line-up.
"There will be tens of thousands of people descending on Lytham for the five days of the festival and we can't wait to welcome them for what will be five truly spectacular nights of live music."
