If you thought the festival season was over, think again. It’s only just begun.
This year, for the first time ever, the Northwest is hosting the UK's newest and biggest indoor music festival. Blackpool Rocks brings you an eclectic mix of all things dance, electro, urban and indie with some of the industry’s biggest names – alongside an incredible selection of the most exciting up and coming talent the UK over.
One look at the line up and it's no wonder this event is already attracting some serious attention with tickets flying out since their release on Friday 27th September. Acts like The 1975, Disclosure, Pete Tong, Swim Deep and Wretch 32 are already confirmed, and be sure to check out the full lineup below now.
Add to that incredible lineup an awesome indoor venue in Blackpool's Winter Gardens and the stage is set for a ground breaking event for the North West's music scene. Built way back in 1878, The Winter Gardens is one of Blackpool's many historic venues but bringing things into the present, Saturday 21st December 2013 will see an 8,000 strong crowd take over the venue for the most forward thinking event the venue has ever seen.
The reaction to this event has been exceptional and it is sure to be a sell-out.
Just one night, eight rooms and - everything you'd expect from a full on music festival.
