Live music to return to 2014 Bournemouth Air Festival

Bournemouth Echo: FESTIVAL: The Feeling playing last year at Boscombe Pier FESTIVAL: The Feeling playing last year at Boscombe Pier

ORGANISERS of Bournemouth Air Festival have confirmed that the popular live concerts on the beach will be back this year.

Last year, acts including Newton Faulkner, Blue and The Feeling performed at the ticketed shows near to Boscombe Pier.

This year’s acts are yet to be announced, but more well-known names are promised.

Night Air at the Piers, sponsored by Corona, will follow the evening air displays on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the event, which is being held between August 28 and 31.

Radio station Wave 105 will be hosting the Boscombe stage and is set to reveal the line-ups soon.

Jon Brooks, commercial director of Wave 105, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with the Bournemouth Air Festival once again. This event is one of the largest of its kind and has positioned itself as one of the most attended annual events on the south coast and this year’s spectacle is gearing up to be even more exciting.

“As well as providing coverage of the event, Wave 105 will be involved heavily with the Night Air programme. There are some big announcements to come, so stay tuned to find out what acts we have in store to make this year’s Night Air programme better than ever.”

Jon Weaver, air festival director, added: “This is our third year working with Wave105 and the acts just continue to get bigger and better – we can’t wait to announce the line-up.”

The evening programme will also feature the Band of HM Royal Marines performing the Beat Retreat and the Royal Marines Combat Display Team on the East Overcliff, while fireworks will round things off.

Is it actually going to be advertised correctly this time? In previous years, the term 'night air' has lead to many people assuming a full night display in the air rather than a few displays at dusk and a load of very ordinary music!

The displays by Brendan O'Brien, the Swip duo and Glider FX are spectacular to say the least. The music has been rather a let down in comparison.

There was a beach boys tribute band on a stage next to bournemouth pier last year. They were dull.

The year before there was a Who tribute group, very good too.

This year at the same spot i'd like to see either a Pink Floyd tribute act or a Dire Straits tribute act or the real Billy Idol.

It' s nice day for a white wedding wooooooww
