Wave 105 presenters Mark Collins and Rick Jackson are riding the crest of a wave all the way to this year’s Bournemouth Air Festival to host the exciting live music programme ‘Night Air at the Piers’, in association with Corona.

As the official commercial radio partner of the Bournemouth Air Festival, Wave 105 has a thrilling host of top music acts lined up to perform at the family-friendly event.

On the Friday night (August 30) Rick Jackson will entertain the crowds while introducing the ever popular ‘man-band’ Blue, Westlife star Shane Filan, The Feeling, feisty girl band Stooshe and X Factor graduates Lucy Spraggen and Diana Vickers.

Mark Collins will be hosting the Saturday night (August 31) where a glittering line-up of stars including Newton Faulkner, Irish rockers Kodaline, Gabriella Cilmi, new girl band Neon Jungle and 80s pop icons Johnny Hates Jazz are set to light up the night sky.

Mark said: “We are so excited to be hosting two incredible nights of live music for this year’s Night Air at the Piers. With a superb line-up of acts, a bigger stage and a new state-of-the-art sound system, the anticipation is already building for the best event yet.”

Rick added: “We are really looking forward to donning our beachwear, standing on the Corona stage and feeling the electric atmosphere as we introduce some of the biggest names in music today.”

Priced at £7, tickets are on sale via the BH Live website, with limited numbers left for each night. Gates open at Boscombe Pier each day at 6pm, with the show running until 10pm (approx. times).

With a number of shows being broadcast live from the UK’s largest aviation event on Bournemouth beach on Thursday August 29 until Saturday August 31, Wave 105 will be covering all of the action, news, travel and weather on air, online and streaming the thrilling air displays live through Wave TV at www.wave105.com.

To add to the spectacle, Wave 105 will be exhibiting within the air zone. The station will also bring along the Hop On Inn, a 1966 routemaster bus converted into a pub to form the Wave 105 Corona beach bar.
