2011 IOM Bay Festival will have you Spelbound by their ‘Early Birds’!

Following hot on the heels of the success of this year’s Manx Telecom Bay Festival the organisers have announced that they have already finalised the line-up for next year’s ‘X Factor Meets Britain’s Got Talent’. With over 8,000 in attendance this year the organisers have been inundated with requests asking when next years will be on sale as no one wants to miss out. 
Jonathan Irving co-event promoter with his son Jamie said: “The Father’s Day spectacular starring Olly Murs, Diversity, Danyl Johnson, Signature, Stavros Flately etc went down a storm. I was backstage looking out at the audience and the excitement and enthusiasm for the whole event was like nothing I had seen before. So we decided to strike while the iron was still hot and build on the success by releasing next year’s tickets next week, which is again on Father’s Day.”
Jamie Irving said: “we decided to make it even more fun and keep the interest going right through. Therefore based on the fact that no one had heard of Olly Murs or Danyl Johnson at this time last year we have decided that whoever finishes 2nd and 3rd on this year’s X Factor they will be appearing on the Bay Festival stage on 19th June next year. So watch closely! In addition we are excited to say we have booked the winners of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, Spelbound plus runners up Twist and Pulse and to compere and perform his own inimitable act will be impersonator and comedian and BGT finalist Paul Burling.
Jamie concluded by saying that: “the one and only Stacey Solomon will also be performing and to make it even more exciting we are asking people to vote for their most popular artist from this year’s XF/BGT. Whoever wins the popular vote will be invited back as part of the line-up for the Father’s Day extravaganza. People will be able to vote next week through our website:
Tickets for the X Factor/BGT will go on sale next Thursday 8th July from 8am to those who have purchased any tickets for this year’s Manx Telecom Bay Festival. Those lucky people will receive an access code on Wednesday allowing them to purchase on Thursday with general sale opening up at 8am on Friday 9th.  
At the same time those who wish to make ‘Early Bird’ deposits for other performances during the festival or purchase all weekend festival passes all with extra benefits and discounts until 31st July can do so through the website as from next week. To accommodate parties or people who prefer to pay by cheque the organisers will be able to accept this form of payment as long as the booking is made and the cheque received within 5 days.

Jonathan said: “we decided to simplify things next time and just have 3 different ticket types: VIP, seat and stand. Also we have taken 10 rows of seats off at the back of the blocks which means standing is much closer to the stage and all the seating area will be fully controlled by mojo barriers.”

One thought on “IMPRESSED BY 2010?….. 3 ‘EARLY BIRD’ TICKET OPTIONS FOR 2011!

  1. Would you consider offering more competitions say on local radio for people to meet the stars backstage. Not everyone can afford to buy VIP tickets and maybe you could offer say for 10 people to win the opportunity over the period of this next year to meet the top billing stars. Thank you to you and your fauther for briniging some life to this Island. Every person I have spoken to about the Bay Festival is very positive and I personally cannot wait till 2011.
