THE BLACKPOOL INTERNATIONAL SOUL FESTIVAL, 2021.
With great regret, we must announce that this year's Soul Festival, planned for the weekend of June 18th-20th, cannot take place due to the ongoing issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.
We have had to make this difficult decision now, as given the huge amount of pre-event planning required, the artists' travel and accommodation arrangements, as well as rehearsing musicians in a timely fashion, means our festival would be adversely affected.
There is still so much uncertainty, and of course, we are also required to take heed of ongoing government advice regarding indoor mass gatherings of any kind being allowed to take place.
As always, we have your safety as our major priority, and we want to bring you an event which can be equally as vibrant and exciting as all the previous ones have been.
Therefore, all tickets already purchased for June 2020 or 2021 will now be automatically rolled over to June 17th-19th 2022 by which time we are confident we will be able to return with the high-standard event you expect.
We are currently in the process of finalising all the details of the entertainment for June 2022, we will be able to re-confirm the full artist and DJ line-ups here on the Blackpool International Soul Festival Facebook group shortly.
As always, if you have any questions regarding tickets already purchased from the Winter Gardens (Ticketmaster), please send your e-mail to: [email protected]
(Please allow 7-10 working days for your query to be processed)
We are sorry that it's not better news, and of course it goes without saying that your support and understanding is very much appreciated at this very difficult time for all of us.
On a brighter, more positive note, just as soon as we get through this, we can promise you an additional 'free-of-charge to all Blackpool International Soul Festival ticket-holders' event to take place here in The Winter Gardens.
We will let you know more about this just as soon as we can via social media.
In the meantime, please stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Winter Gardens just as soon as it's safe to do so.
Richard Searling and the Blackpool International Soul Festival team.
