And although a free event tickets are needed for the day for both adults and children.

Eighteen bands have already signed up for the day and for 2020 organisers partnered with Burnley Football Club to use the home of the Clarets as the venue.

Running over the two days there will be live music from the bands, who are the cream of the crop of local musicians, and a host of other attractions including food, drink, and entertainment for children including fairground rides and free face painting.

The first Burnley Live was held last year in the town centre and was a major draw, bringing thousands of people into the town.

Running from noon to 8pm on both days at Turf Moor the extensive grounds will be transformed into Burnley Live complete with a main stage for the bands to perform.

On both evenings the festival vibe will continue with several bars and restaurants in the town centre supporting Burnley Live.

Madge Nawaz, one of the organisers of Burnley Live said: "There has a been a fantastic amount of support shown already for Burnley Live, people are really looking forward to it.

"But they will need tickets and all you need to do is register online for them. They are going fast so we advise people to get theirs as soon as possible."

Organisers are still on the look out for sponsorship and support from any local firms, shops or businesses who would like to take part.
