CURRENT chart stars Imani Williams and Calum Scott will be joining Travis at the Wave 105 Night Air “Hits On The Beach” event at Boscombe Pier this August.
Bournemouth Air Festival “Night Air At The Piers” entertainment in conjunction with Wave 105 and sponsored by Shorefield Holiday Parks, will run across three nights (Thursday 18, Friday 19 and Saturday 20 August) offering a range of music to suit all tastes and ages, supported by stunning night flying displays.
Rising star Imani Williams is the vocalist on DJ Sigala’s number one hit ‘Say You Do’ also featuring DJ Fresh and will be performing on the Friday. Imani has also collaborated with Sigala on her recent debut solo single ‘Don’t Need No Money’, which also features club and chart stars Blonde who also perform at Night Air on the Saturday night.
Britain’s Got Talent star Calum Scott is currently the most successful new British recording artist of the year and will also perform at this year’s Wave 105 night ‘Hits on the Beach’ on Friday night. Calum’s single ‘Dancing on My Own’ has been in the top 40 for three months and as of this week, is now in the top five. Calum’s audition video for Britain’s Got Talent has had nearly 70 million views on Youtube, and he signed a worldwide recording deal with Capitol Records last month.
On the Saturday (August 20), dance music returns to Wave 105 Night Air, under a new name “Sunsets On The Beach” – The Official Air Festival Beach Party. Wave 105 has teamed up with Halo to present headliners Example and DJ Wire, with support from Blonde, plus DJ’s Jaguar Skills and Majestic – a line up guaranteed to get the crowd dancing on the sand against the backdrop of the setting sun over Boscombe beach.
“Proms on the Beach”, hosted by Wave 105’s Kate Weston, returns to Night Air for the second year running on the Thursday. After hugely positive feedback last year, “The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Collingwood” returns for a very British affair by the water’s edge.
Keith Penny, Wave 105 Event Director, said: “Imani Williams and Calum Scott are fantastic additions to our line-up. Both of these up and coming stars have accomplished amazing things this year, and we’re so pleased they will be opening for us at Night Air’s “Hit’s On The Beach” this August.”
Crowned last year’s Visit England’s Tourism Event of the Year, the 2016 Air Festival will host thrilling demonstrations from leading aviation groups, including the Red Arrows, RN Black Cats Helicopter Display Team and Tigers Freefall Parachute Display Team. Only displaying at Bournemouth and one other this year, the Super Puma Display Team has just been announced as a new addition to the 2016 show.
Tickets are priced from just £10 from www.wave105.com/nightair or the BIC. Wave 105 will be announcing further Night Air acts over the next few weeks. Listen out to hear who will be performing on the south coast this summer.
