That was the reaction from Dutch house superstar Oliver Heldens, who played to the masses at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens on Friday night.

He tweeted after the event: “Yes, was awesome!”.

Fellow star DJ Danny Howard tweeted: “Big up #Blackpool for bringin it last night”.

Oliver, Nero and Radio 1’s Danny were just some of the world famous performers who hit the stage at the Empress Ballroom.

They were also joined by Will Wallace, from Out Rawcliffe, near Garstang, who won a spot at Blackpool Rocks after winning the show’s competition using his own house music mixes.

In his case, he got nearly 3000 likes and more than 2,500 shares.
