This August Bank Holiday weekend, Blackpool’s Headlands Arena will be hosting some of the world’s biggest musical stars for LIVEWIRE Festival, a new series of concerts.

One of the most recognisable outfit in musical history, The Jacksons will headline the Friday. The Saturday line-up features some of the biggest pop hits of the 1980s as part of Pete Waterman’s Hit Factory, which includes the man himself. Last but not least the Sunday sees Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff team up for a rare UK appearance.

A LIVEWIRE spokesperson said, “This is LIVEWIRE Festival’s first year and we are thrilled to be launching this fabulous weekend of music. We can’t wait to bring Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff, The Jacksons, Jason Donovan and more to Blackpool, the best location in the UK for entertainment.”
