More artists are set to be announced by the Wave 105 team over the coming weeks.

The live music event takes place over two nights and features a host of big names and rising stars along with flying demonstrations to light up the twilight skies.

Keith Penny, Wave 105's event director, said: “Night Air at the Piers is one of the highlights of the Bournemouth summer. What could be better than a night of great live music, on one of the best beaches in the country, to the backdrop of an amazing dusk air display?

“As usual we have something for all members of the family, from one of the biggest stars of the 80s to the latest chart acts. From folk to dance, and all for just £8 per ticket.”

There are 6,500 tickets available for each night from the BH Live website, visit
