Huge all-dayer held each summer in Blackpool

Blackpool Rocks is an indoor dance, electronic and techno music festival held every summer in Blackpool. 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 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 The Return for 24 July 2021 at Blackpool North Pier, with a line-up including:

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

Solardo – The production duo of Mark Richards and James Eliot hail from Manchester and continue the city’s rich heritage in house music.

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

Heidi – Canadian house and techno DJ, host of Radio 1's Thursday night Residency, co-founder of the Phonica record store and creator of the world-renowned Jackathon parties.

Franky Wah – Yorkshire DJ and producer who has rapidly progressed from making music on a laptop in his shed to being one of the most exciting names in dance music for 2021.
