When she next steps foot in Northern Ireland, Alexandra will be performing alongside The Wanted, The Saturdays, Fugative and many more at ‘Live at the Beach’ at the East Strand on Saturday 25 June.

The concert, which runs from 4pm to 11pm, also plays host to a ‘festival village’ of colourful shops, stalls and food outlets, while younger guests are extremely well catered for with a multitude of activities including bouncy castles, face painting, giant inflatable slides and fun-filled adventures throughout the day.
