Financial support from Morecambe Town Council was unfortunately slashed for 2016 meaning that income had to be generated to cover costs of staging this amazing Festival.  For nine amazing years the Festival has been free.  And in fact, even this year, daytime sessions  on Friday, Saturday and Sunday daytime remains free and inclusive.  Cost of event specific entry on Saturday night is just £8 and there are 4 superb sessions at 4 brilliant separate locations to choose from.  Cost of entry to the three roomed event at Smokey O'Connors on Friday night is just £5 - or buy your ticket at the same time as your Saturday night ticket and pay JUST £2!  Hopefully you'll agree that we are continuing to offer brilliant entertainment at superb value for money prices?  DJ line-up for each session is being uploaded now.

Just over a month to the highlight of my year, can't wait . Id never object to paying for such a great selection of music , just hope the changes don't spoil the Morecambe vibe, .. and that the Sun comes out for Saturday's only outside Soul event that I know of . Cool Notes
