Three more ‘jams’ are layered between other events at the busy pier. They offer garage and quality electronic music with the best view of any festival – sea and Blackpool Tower.

Part Two of the Pier Jam 2016 summer series on Saturday, August 20 sees chart topping DJ/producer Duke Dumont heading the line-up. He stormed the UK charts with Need U, I Got U and The Giver.

In-demand French DJ Tchami joins Duke. In 2014, Tchami’s remix of Janet Jackson’s “Go Deep” became an instant overnight hit! With much critical acclaim, he soon followed up with his first original production Promesses with Kaleem Taylor.

He’s gained support from some of today’s top DJs such as A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, Dillon Francis and Skrillex.

UK chart toppers Philip George & DJ SKT complete the line up with Sleepin’ is Cheatin’ head honchos Tom Zanetti and KO Kane.

Director of Pier Jam James Cohen said: “We are overcome with how many people have already embraced the Pier Jam brand and ethos. This year the bar has been raised even higher with our biggest line-ups to date,”
