Mariah Carey, the best-selling female artist of all time, has chosen Blackpool’s LIVEWIRE Festival for her only UK 2018 festival appearance. The pop superstar, who has sold more than 200 million albums to date, will headline the Friday night slot of the festival.
After a massive inaugural year, which saw unforgettable performances by a host of UK and international acts including Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Jacksons, LIVEWIRE Festival will return to the famous seaside resort for the August bank holiday. Blackpool’s Tower Headlands Arena will once again welcome some of the world’s biggest music stars.
Councillor Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council said: “This is absolutely fantastic news and we are thrilled at the prospect of Mariah Carey performing live in Blackpool. .
“She is a world-class artist and this promises to be another sensational Livewire event over the August Bank Holiday weekend.”
