Deferred until 2022 – The 5th Blackpool International Soul Festival

March 30, 2020

A message from co-promoter Richard Searling

“Firstly, thanks for your patience and understanding over recent weeks. In these exceptionally difficult times we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the event which was due to take place over the weekend of June 12th-14th.

The re-scheduled date, when we will come back bigger and stronger than ever, is confirmed for June 17th-19th, 2022.

All tickets already purchased for June 2020 will now be automatically transferred to this new date.

I have spent the recent days talking with all the artists who were due to appear this year, and I can now confirm that Maxine Brown, Barbara Mason, G C Cameron and Jimmie Delphs have all agreed to appear next year, and, to ensure that it’s our best event to date in 2021, I have also secured the services of more legends of our music : Betty Harris and Darrow Fletcher!

So, six wonderful American acts for us all to look forward to in June 2021!

If you require any further information on the ticketing side of things, please email to:

Please be patient whilst your query is dealt with as the venue are currently dealing with other rescheduled events. For their added safety, the team there are all working remotely at the moment, but please be assured that we value your support.

Please note: We will soon be on sale to NEW customers for June 2022 at NEW prices, and we will keep everyone updated on this via our website:

Of course we would have loved to run as planned this June and to welcome you all to one of the most eagerly-anticipated soul weekenders on the calendar, but we are determined to come back stronger than ever next year, when we are all in a better place and ready to celebrate all together, in style.

Sending love and hope to you all,

The Blackpool International Soul Festival team.”
