A new date has been added to the Blackpool festival calendar.

The now famous Blackpool Rocks winter dance music celebration is branching out to launch a new spring event.

Taking over the Empress Ballroom on Friday, April 29, tickets for the night go on sale today at 10am.

This will be the fourth outing of Blackpool Rocks following mega events at the Winter Gardens and Blackpool Tower the past three Decembers.

The first headliner to be revealed is Dutch house music producer Oliver Heldens who stormed the scene back in 2013 with his dance chart topping hit Gecko and was one of the masterminds behind Martin Garrix’s anthem Animals.

And the hot-tipped house-head will be joined by many others, with more announcements still to come.

Music promoters Cuffe and Taylor organise Blackpool Rocks, in partnership with the Fylde’s own superstar DJ Danny Howard, who will also appear.

Director Peter Taylor said: “This is a really exciting event for us to be announcing.

“The Blackpool Rocks December event is hugely popular so it makes absolute sense to give people a little extra fun and launch a spring event too.”

The winter festival will return with details to be announced later this year.
