One Of These Days Festival

A new festival of festivals will launch in Blackpool later this year called One Of These Days, which will see the people behind sixteen other music events each programme a stage in the seaside town’s Winter Gardens complex, sitting underneath the Blackpool Tower. Field Day, Øya Festival, Melt!, Kendal Calling, the Glastonbury Dance Village, End Of The Road, SWN Festival, The Warehouse Project and the Eden Sessions are among the other festivals due to take part.

Commenting on the motivation for the new event, which will take place on 8 and 9 Dec, One Of These Days promoter Ruth Daniels told CMU: “We had been thinking about starting a boutique festival in the North West of England for a while. The idea just clicked when we saw the Winter Gardens, the space is so conducive to housing lots of different events at the same time. So we decided to invite all the amazing festivals we have seen around the world to come to recreate micro versions of their events across this amazing space”.

Explaining how it will work, Daniels continues: “Each of the sixteen festivals has a venue for one day and night. They will take over the space, bringing a music line up and strong visual elements that reflect their festival. As you walk around The Winter Gardens each space will look and sound completely different, and we have over 150 of the most exciting bands and DJs that have all featured on the stages of the festivals involved. You can buy a day or weekend ticket and that will get you into everything!”
