altBlackpool was thrilled to learn that OtherWorlds Festival of Experimental Music is back again this year, so that we may all once again partake in the audio-visual extravaganza that we enjoyed so much the first time around.
It was such a success at its inaugural occasion, that the organisers (Mustdie Records) decided they needed double the fun and are blessing us with exciting new musical acts at Bootleg Social every night, plus free interactive family-friendly activities throughout the day at the Grundy and Blackpool Central Library.
The event is on for 4 action-packed days, from Thursday 7 April, up to and including Sunday 10 April. The weekend kicks off with an esoteric and exciting night of Arab tunes curated by Tse Tse Fly, and features such delights as Laura Cannell, Richard Dawson, Tirikilatops, Graham Dunning and many more.
Last year’s sound walk was a great success, and will be available again this year, as well as b0rkestra at Blackpool Central Library – part-music machine, part-art installation, totally fun and entirely interactive.
Weekend tickets are exceptionally reasonable at £32.09, and even better for us locals at £26.94; (proof of address required for purchase).
You can follow them on Twitter, Facebook and their website, for all details of the fabulous artists that we’re lucky to host here in Blackpool and we really are very lucky, we could do with a lot more music to brighten our little town during the harsh months of the early year.
So there’s something for everyone, those who enjoy getting involved, and those who prefer to soak up the skills, ambience, or just rock out! And remember, there are family-appropriate events throughout the daytimes if you have youngsters you’d like to inspire to create, there will be a wealth of creativity and inspiration for the whole long weekend.
Come along and support a wonderfully unique local endeavour, if last year is anything to go by, it should be a blast!
