ONCE IN A LIFETIME LINE-UP FOR 5th BLACKPOOL INTERNATIONAL SOUL FESTIVAL
A stunning once in a lifetime line-up of world-renowned Northern Soul and Motown artists are set to perform at the North West’s biggest International Soul Festival from 12-14th June 2020.
Over the three days the Festival will see an array of exclusive American Northern and Modern Soul legends take to the stage in the stunning surroundings of Blackpool Winter Gardens.
Performing their most popular and most in-demand sixties and seventies songs will be one of New York’s famous soul sisters Maxine Brown, making her first-ever visit to the North-West of England. From Philadelphia there’s Barbara Mason a lady with a huge following in both the 60s and 70s “rare groove” scenes, G C Cameron a fine vocalist who was a member of both the Motown Spinners and the Temptations and, making his first appearance ever in the U K, an artist we recently tracked down, Jimmie Delphs, one of the most-admired vocalists from Detroit.
The concerts on the iconic Empress Ballroom stage will all be supported by Musical Director Snake Davis and band The Suspicions. With many of the songs set to be performed having never been seen live since they were originally recorded in the studio this is sure to be a real treat for Soul enthusiasts.
The Festival also features seven rooms throughout the Winter Gardens complex filled with soul music and over 50 DJs from across the UK and Europe. Organisers are expecting thousands of fans to descend on the venue to enjoy the music, hear the Q&A session, visit exhibitions and shop in the specially created ‘Northern Soul Department Store’.
