Portrush will host one of Northern Ireland’s biggest outdoor concerts this summer.
The event called, ‘Live at the Beach’ will take place at the newly revamped East Strand on Saturday 25 June and will be headlined by official Comic Relief 2011 band ‘The Wanted’ alongside ‘The Saturdays’ and Alexandra Burke.
Also performing are Fugative, Lloyd Daniels and many more.
The concert will also mark the opening of the newly refurbished East Strand area which has been transformed thanks to a £1.1m investment.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday 19th March at 9am.
Mayor of Coleraine, Councillor Norman Hillis welcomed the concert. He said: “Council welcomes the announcement of the 2011 line up for ‘Live at the Beach’ and believes it has the potential to be another very successful family event on the North Coast.
“We look forward to supporting the event organisers, PLM, and welcoming the acts to Portrush in June.
“It is hoped that the event will attract many new visitors to the seaside resort and give the local economy a welcome boost.”
