Blackpool International Soul Festival 5
17 June 2022 - 19 June 2022
With a star-studded line-up of American Soul legends on stage and one of the best DJ teams around, the 5th Blackpool International Soul Festival returns to the world-famous Winter Gardens over the weekend of Friday June 17th to Sunday June 19th, 2022.
Flying over from America to perform their most popular repertoire with backing from Snake Davis and the Suspicions will be Betty Harris, Jean Carne, Darrow Fletcher, Jimmy Delphs and by public demand, the return of the legendary Eddie Holman.
After a gap of two years caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, promotor Richard Searling is looking forward to welcoming back soul music lovers from all around the UK and Europe.
There will be six rooms with DJ sets scheduled for Northern Soul, Modern Soul, Rare Groove, Soulful Dance, Motown, Jazz-Funk, Mod & Ska and we will see the return to the event of the recently refurbished Spanish Hall.
Over 50 years on, soul music continues to grow in popularity and the North-West of England has always maintained a loyal following, and in turn the area has been responsible for creating iconic venues such as The Twisted Wheel in Manchester, Wigan Casino and Blackpool Mecca.
The festival celebrates all that is good about the soul scene into the 21st century, and best of all, it all happens under one amazing roof in Blackpool.
