A Framework to shine spotlight on new local talent
What could be better than one massive music fest in one week? Two.
Not only do we have Blackpool Rocks at the Winter Gardens on Friday for the ultimate heavyweight night out – the voice of the underground is rising too and challenging the status quo.
Not to be mistaken with Status Quo, who play the Empress ballroom on Thursday...
A new and exciting club night comes to Blackpool to shake things up, four promoters have joined forces to form Framework, a multi-genre music event spanning across four arenas in Club Domain. The event will feature headline acts along with local support acts, covering a host of genres including live bands, hip hop, Jungle, drum and bass, trance and house.
Framework is the brain-child of Dope Promo owner Ric Hulme and Luke EP from Breakout Blackpool, who have recruited the help of Lee Thompson from Blueprint and Matt from Small Town Sessions. The night will celebrate the underground music movement, unearthing talented acts that otherwise might not be showcased in the town.
“We are tired of venues and promoters not giving opportunities to the talent growing in town, our ethos is homegrown talent, a party by the people for the people” says Ric.
The event will feature old school hip-hop legend Andy Cooper from Ugly Duckling (USA) with The Allergies’ DJ DJ Moneyshot. Also appearing are Vital Techniques and Gold Dubs.
The Dope Promo Room will feature live bands, live hip hop acts and DJS, The Breakout Room features Drum and Bass and Jungle, ‘Small Town Sessions’ have the House and Techno room and The Blueprint room is Trance.
The event takes place in Club Domain on Friday, April 29. Doors are at 7pm with a happy hour on drinks 8pm-9pm. Curfew is 6am.
