Jon Brooks, Wave 105’s Sales, Marketing and Operations Director, said: “We’re really coming in with a bang for our first year as official radio partner of Corona Night Air Between the Piers.


“We’re making the entertainment even bigger and better than ever before, and we want everyone to ‘get down with the trumpets’ at the Boscombe Pier Corona Music Stage!”


At the other end of the beach, the Bournemouth Pier Corona Music Stage (not ticketed) will be jam-packed with tribute acts from the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Presented by Alex Dyke, festival-goers can watch ‘Complete Madness’ on Thursday evening, enjoy anthems from ‘The Queen Band’ on Friday evening and ‘Who’s Who’, one of The Who’s greatest tribute acts, will take to the stage on Saturday.


Jon Weaver, Air Festival Director, said: “We have been working closely with both Alex Dyke and Wave 105 to ensure there is an incredible line-up of the tribute and current pop acts.  ‘Night Air at the Piers’ will no doubt be the jewel in the Air Festival crown this year and we hope everyone enjoys it!”
