This event has been cancelled, notice from organisers reads:
It is with sadness that we will not be proceeding with One of These Days as planned on Dec 8/9th 2012.
There was an unexpected development with the structure of the business which has left us financially unable to deliver the event to the level we wanted for 2012.
All the guest curators have been very supportive and there is still a lot of goodwill for the event to happen.
We still are trying to work out a solution for 2013.
All ticket buyers can get tickets refunds from point of purchase.
One Of These Days will capture the essence of Field Day, Oya Festival, Melt!, Kendal Calling, Glastonbury Dance Village, Electric Elephant, End of The Road, DFA Records, SWN Festival, The Warehouse Project, Now Wave, Free Rotation, Eden Sessions, Fiber Festival, and Shambala to create a unique experience in the legendary Blackpool Winter Gardens, in the shadow of the Blackpool Tower. One other major international festival’s participation is still to be announced.
Each festival will bring their unique ethos and style to their own individually designed space at the multi-venue indoor complex, curating a line-up that reflects their own celebrated events. From the spectacular Cubehenge light installation of Glastonbury to the indoor forests of End of the Road and the Croatian beaches of Electric Elephant, each festival will bring a taste of the place they call home to Blackpool.
From the big stage draws of Melt! Festival and Eden Sessions to the electronic innovation of The Warehouse Project, Glastonbury Dance Village and DFA and the folk inclinations of End of the Road and SWN Festival, you’re sure to find plenty to explore. With over 150 bands, artists and DJs, not to mention interactive art and film installations, an emerging talent strand and an exclusive Winter Market, One Of These Days promises to end the year in spectacular fashion.
One of These Days will help kick start the cultural redevelopment of Blackpool, it aims to bring this world first event to the seaside town and utilise Blackpool's existing infrastructure of beautiful Victorian theatres and bars that stretch the coastline.
“We were going around the world to many different festivals seeing really unique ways of doing things. We decided to invite these wonderful festivals to the party. Our vision is to have one site where each space within it is filled by a micro-version of each festival, not just musically, but visually – capturing the essence of each festival. We aimed high and asked the festivals we love to come to Blackpool. They said yes…”
