Blackpool iFest launched

Date Posted: 16/03/2015

The annual lights switch-on in Blackpool will be turned into a three-day festival for 2015.

The newly named iFest festival will take place between Friday 4th September and Sunday 6th September on the Tower Festival Headland.

On the first night, chart-topping stars – yet to be named – will perform to the crowds before the lights are officially turned on for the season.

On the Saturday, the area will be taken over by Sky Television’s Vintage TV channel hosting an 80s night with a raft of stars performing their chart-topping hits from the decade.

For Sunday night, the focus will turn to comedy, with the festival’s first ever comedy gig to be held on the Tower Festival Headland.
