As the official commercial radio partner of the Bournemouth Air Festival, Wave 105 is thrilled to announce that the witty, energetic – not to mention extremely talented Rizzle Kicks will be back to headline this year’s ‘Corona Night Air at the Piers’.

Following their hugely popular performance back in 2012, the pop-duo will once again be taking to the Wave 105 Corona Music Stage on Friday August 29 at Boscombe Pier where they will perform new single ‘Tell Her’ and their smash hits including ‘Down With The Trumpets’, ‘Mama Do The Hump’ and ‘When I Was A Youngster’.

Joining Rizzle Kicks for Friday evening’s spectacular Night Air line-up is pop boy band, Rixton, the ever likeable cheeky chappies from Britain’s Got Talent, Loveable Rogues, and new pop and R&B singer, Alexa Goddard who hails from Hampshire. Plus, more artists are set to be announced by the Wave 105 team over the coming weeks.

The live music event, which is sponsored by Corona, takes place over two nights and features a host of big names and rising stars along with spectacular dusk flying demonstrations to light up the twilight skies.

Tickets cost £8 (postal fees may apply) with 6,500 tickets available for each night and these go on sale tomorrow (Saturday July 26) via the BH Live website:

Keith Penny, Wave 105’s event director, said: “Night Air between the Piers is a fantastic family-friendly concert. We have had huge success with our past two events so we can’t wait for this year.  A gig on the beach, with the waves lapping on the shore and the sun setting over the pier is a fantastic experience anyway, but couple this with the Night Air flying and you have a truly special combination that the artists and crowd love in equal measure. We’re anticipating huge demand once again so be quick to get your ticket and don’t miss out on one of the biggest events in the south.”

Wave 105 will be broadcasting live on Bournemouth beach from Thursday August 28 until Sunday August 31 covering all of the action, from the thrilling air displays, news, travel and weather, on air and online live via its website

In addition to this, Wave 105 will be exhibiting with the air zone alongside the station’s Hop On Inn, a 1966 routemaster bus converted into a pub which will form the Wave 105 Corona beach bar.

As well as live music at Boscombe and Bournemouth stages the Night Air programme features The Band of HM Royal Marines (CTCRM) performing the Beat Retreat, Royal Marines Combat Display Team on the East Overcliff, an extended dusk display starting at 7.15pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday, firework displays Friday and Saturday night and beach fireworks Thursday and Friday evening.
