Dance duo Disclosure, rapper Wretch 32 and indie chart-toppers The 1975 have all been named as headliners for the Blackpool Rocks festival.

And world-famous DJs Trevor Nelson and Pete Tong will also take to the stage for the one-night-only event later this year.

Billed as the largest indoor music event in the North West, Blackpool Rocks features some of the biggest names in music as well as offering homegrown talent an opportunity to play to thousands.

More than 8,000 people are expected to attend the festival, featuring live acts playing across seven rooms in the Winter Gardens on Saturday, December 21.

The event is being brought to Blackpool by business partners DJ Danny Howard and Alex Huckerby with event organisers Cuffe and Taylor.

Festival director Danny Howard, DJ on BBC Radio One’s Dance Anthems, said: “We get big acts come to do one off shows in Blackpool but to have this on such a scale, to see this selection, is going to be so, so good.

“This is the best group of DJs and artists that Blackpool has seen probably in decades.”
