Promoter Richard Searling said:

“I’m absolutely delighted to be able to bring one of the finest vocalists the world of soul music has ever known back for an encore performance. Patti’s show in 2018 will live long in the memory for the thousands who saw it – almost all the songs were performed live by Patti for the first time ever since she recorded them all those years ago -it’s a stunning coup for us to have such a magnificent talent coming back to the Winter Gardens – it’s going to be pure joy for everyone attending”

The festival is also part of Blackpool’s Capital Of Dance month which sees the town celebrated for being just that.

The soul festival will also host no fewer than seven rooms of soul and over 40 top DJs covering the whole spectrum and history of the scene with reunion sessions slated for Blackpool Mecca, The Twisted Wheel in Manchester, The Ritz All-Dayers of the seventies and Village Soul in London.
