Huge all-dayer held each summer in Blackpool Winter Gardens

Blackpool Rocks is an indoor dance, electronic and techno music festival held every summer in Blackpool Winter Gardens. Originally conceived as an offshoot of the famous Ibiza event, the first Blackpool Rocks was held in 2013 with a star-studded line-up that included The 1975, Disclosure, Wretch 32, Danny Howard, Trevor Nelson and Pete Tong.

The festival moved to Blackpool Tower for its 2014 edition, with Howard and Nelson returning alongside Martin Garrix and Ms Dynamite. In 2015, it was back in its now permanent home of Blackpool Winter Gardens with Annie Mac, Craig David and Lethal Bizzle.

Over the years that followed, Blackpool Rocks built up a reputation as one of the best dance-orientated all-dayers in the country, drawing enthusiastic crowds and world-renowned acts to Blackpool each summer.

Blackpool Rocks announced its return for 2021, with a line-up that included:

Fatboy Slim – World-famous hitmaker behind singles including Weapon Of Choice, Right Here, Right Now and Praise You.

Danny Howard – Radio 1 DJ and founder of the Nothing Else Matters label, festival mainstay Howard returns to Blackpool Rocks for his fifth appearance and first since taking over Pete Tong's coveted Friday night slot on Radio 1.
