CHART-toppers The Wanted and McFly are set for some summer fun as the first pop acts to grace Blackpool’s new Festival Headland.
Lytham Proms’ promoters Cuffe and Taylor are behind the gig which will be on Sunday, June 24.
Both bands have been billed as joint-headliners and further acts will be announced.
A spokesman for Cuffe and Taylor said: “We are thrilled to be hosting music concerts in the heart of Blackpool.
“We are a local company and can’t wait to be part of this exciting venture working with Marketing Blackpool.
“The Wanted and McFly are hugely popular and to have them both headlining at the same concert, will be a great day.”
The event is being jointly promoted by Marketing Blackpool.
Natalie Wyatt, Managing Director of Marketing Blackpool, added: “We are pleased to announce that we will be working with Cuffe and Taylor on a series of music events on the Tower Festival Headlands this year.
“We have a proud track record of staging fantastic events in the resort.
“The partnership with Cuffe and Taylor will allow us to share expertise and information to create something very special to launch the Tower Festival Headland.”
