Back To The Old Pool, the ultimate old skool and club classics festival, will return to a new location in Blackpool on Saturday 8 July 2017; the Tower Festival Headland, making history as the first dance music event to take place on this site.
Back To The Old Pool brings the originators of rave culture from eighties to noughties across five arenas. The lineup features DJ sets, PA’s and live performances from the likes of Chicane, Dave Pearce, Sonique, Seb Fontaine, Mauro Picotto, Lasgo Live, M.I.K.E. Push, Slipmatt, DJ SY, N-Trance, Baby D, Angie Brown, K-Klass, Shades Of Rhythm and many more. The festival is also taking over the LED controls of Blackpool Tower for a mesmerising lightshow.
The festival made its mark when it launched last summer on Lawson’s Showground with a lineup featuring Judge Jules, Marco V, Altern-8 and Yoji Biomehanika. This year it raises the bar with a new location, a bigger lineup, an open air main stage, superior facilities in the VIP area and even more promoters and brands from the halcyon days of dance music. Spanning genres through club classics, old skool, trance, hard house, hardcore, bounce and even the latest house cuts, Back To The Old Pool has something to satisfy the tastes of each and every daytime raver in attendance:
This year’s new outdoor main stage is produced in association with Dance Decade. Also new for 2017 is the Syndicate Superclub Reunion Arena. Synonymous with Blackpool clubbing from December 2002 until its closure in August 2011, the Syndicate brings a lineup of trance classics. Wigan old skool brand More Cake is another new addition offering, as part of its 10-year celebration, rave classics and a mouth-watering lineup of artists. Making a welcome return is Blackpool-born party- starters, Sanctuary. From the North Pier to Club Domain, there are few spaces the 15-year old brand hasn’t partied at in the seaside town and brings a bounce classics arena to the festival.
Hosting the VIP arena is the newly opened bar and nightclub, Home & HQ. Launched with a stunning finish by the team behind the original Syndicate nightclub, Home & HQ brings the lineup bang up to date with a big dose of house and bass. Talent includes rising star Ben Rainey, mashup DJ Danny T, Rock FM’s Mark Freejack among others. The VIP area has also been enhanced this year with improved toilets, bottle and waitress service, exclusive bar, and luxury seating for a spot of respite when the dancing feet start to ache!
