Mariah Carey, one of the best-selling female artists of all time, has chosen Blackpool’s Livewire Festival for her only UK 2018 festival appearance on Friday 24th August.

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 event last year, which saw unforgettable performances by a host international acts including Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Jacksons, Livewire Festival will returns to the 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.’

Livewire may only be in its second year but it has already left its stamp on the UK Festival circuit, generating worldwide headlines following Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff’s first UK performance to a sold out 20,000 capacity crowd.

Tickets priced from £65 are on sale on Friday May 11th at 10am from www.livewirefestival.co.uk
