Saturday the 21st December will see a wide cross section of music royalty descend on the seaside town for one of the most hotly anticipated events happening this winter.

Fans of everything from hip hop to pop, rock to electro, will be thoroughly catered for at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens with a line-up of scintillating quality will create some glorious across the board aural entertainment.

The 1975 'Chocolate'

Announced thus far (more are yet to be added) are number one album holders The 1975. 2013 has really been their year, storming the charts with ‘Chocolate’, ‘The City’ and ‘Sex’, gaining critical plaudits right across the board as well as extensive airplay from the mighty Radio One. Having played just about every major festival this summer, The 1975 have established themselves as a permanent fixture of pop culture in the UK, one of the most exciting things to have happened to alternative music for some time.

Wretch 32 ft Jacob Banks 'Doing OK'

UK Bass Music Awards nominees Disclosure will be bringing their finely tuned pop meets bass music sound to Blackpool Rocks in the shape of one of their renowned DJ slots. Wretch 32 will also be putting in a headlining appearance with his own brand of grime, UK rap and bass music which has gained him a huge following.

Other highlights in the eight arena venue include the UK's most iconic figure of r&b Trevor Nelson, British dance music institution Pete Tong, Radio Ones favourite new boy Danny Howard, bass music siren Hannah Wants, indie rockers Swim Deep, North Easter rock heroes Little Comets, and the hauntingly beautiful, Blackpool based Rae Morris. For the full Blackpool Rocks line up head here.

All the ingredients are in place for an almighty party this coming winter, so expect an incredible day of music performed by some of the country’s most prominent artists.
