An international roster of urban artists are lined up for the return of the Sand, Sea and Spray festival.

The three-day celebration takes place from Friday to Sunday, July 10 to 12, hosted by community arts body Aunty Social and festival founder Robin Ross.

From where we started, to be able to create an internationally recognised event, and to see its return after being away for a year, fills me with joy

Artists will travel to Blackpool from France, Switzerland, Russia, Argentina, Sweden and Norway, with more to be added to the line-up soon.

UK representatives include My Dog Sighs, Jay Sharples and Dale Grimshaw, with Blackpool’s home-grown talent such as Catch 22, Lowdown, Chris Fenn and Infected by Design among those showcasing their skills on live art days.

Robin said: “From where we started, to be able to create an internationally recognised event, and to see its return after being away for a year, fills me with joy.

“The fact we’re able to attract such talented artists goes to show how much they enjoy coming to paint in Blackpool – it’s great news for the town.”
