The basics

Grab a programme for only £1 and navigate around the 21 venues for four days of local talent. 

The festival

Plenty of northern soul goes into this festival at everyone’s favourite seaside town, with a couple of hundred bands performing at friendly pubs and clubs along the coast over a few days. The best news is it’s all FREE! But should you feel generous the festival collaborates with local homelessness charities and encourages contributions to the less fortunate in the community.

You can expect to hear jazz, blues, rock, punk, country, folk, country, pop, acoustic, choirs and much else; the Sandgrown’uns aren’t fussy. It’s not all about music either, Blackpool Music Festival features poetry recitals. Mirror, mirror on the wall, whose the loveliest fest of all? See? 

By the way how did you not know people from Blackpool are called Sandgrown’uns? We’re disappointed.

Our tip

Single most persuasive reason to get tickets for this or any festival:

"Get a ticket in case David Bowie agrees to come".
