all ages

Is the show all ages?

Yes the show is all ages! Children under 12 are free with an adult holding a weekend ticket (maximum 3 children). They must be accompanied their parent/guardian at all times. If your child is under 12 but looks older, you may be asked to provide proof of age for free entry.

indoor gig

Rebellion is MAINLY an indoor event!

Rebellion is an indoor festival held in the wonderful WINTER GARDENS in the seaside town of Blackpool. Lots of venues, cafes, bars under one roof - no need to worry about umbrellas or the great British weather affecting the festival!! The addition of R-FEST sees us add an OUTDOOR stage for 2022.

Frequently asked questions

How can I contact Rebellion?

The best way is to email us at info@rebellionfestivals.com 

A full list of contact options plus an address to write to us is available on our CONTACT page

What do I do upon arrival?

Take your ticket to the wristband exchange (we will advertise where this will be in advance) where it will be exchanged for a wristband which will be put on for you. Don't take it off at all over the weekend as this will gain you entrance each day. Damaged wristbands may be exchanged but do not lose them because they cannot be replaced.

DOORS - OPENING TIMES

Doors open at 11am on THURSDAY and 12pm on Friday / Saturday / Sunday

Re-Entry?

Once you have exchanged your ticket for a wristband you are free to come and go as you please. Towards the end of the evening the security may restrict entry - ie at a 2am finish the last entrance may be 1.15am.

OUTDOOR STAGE - New for 2022 is R-Fest, our outdoor stage. If you have bought a day ticket for this arena ONLY (rather than a weekend or day ticket) you are guaranteed a to get back in. If you are a Rebellion weekend or day ticket holder, R-Fest is essentially an extra stage for you to access free of charge and will operate like all our stages whereby entrance will be limited once capacity is reached. You have 6 other stages to chose from at that point.

Smoking?

In accordance with UK law the whole of the venue is a no smoking area, there is a designated outdoor smoking area at the venue.

Accessibility?

The Winter Gardens is a listed building and as such there are physical restrictions in what can and can't be done to accommodate accessibility. There are multiple venues on different levels within the Winter Gardens. However, both Rebellion Festivals and the venue are committed to ensuring that everybody has access to all areas and can provide advice and assistance. Please read our ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT  for further information.

Health & Safety

Your safety and well being whilst at Rebellion is our primary concern. Please read our statement here. 

Bars / Food?

Bars and food are provided by the venue and Rebellion festivals have no say in pricing or menu's. There is a bar in each venue and a couple of separate bars. There is a coffee shop which sells cakes and sandwiches and a cafe for main meals. The venue is placed in the middle of a busy UK town centre, so shops, pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants are all in walking distance.

Are cameras allowed inside the venue?

Cameras for personal use are permitted in the venues. These are defined as small compact digital cameras or phone cameras etc. Professional or Semi Professional cameras including Digital SLRs are not permitted. The public are not allowed to take photos from the pit and no professional photographers or photography will be allowed without prior permission. Please contact our Photo Manager Dod Morrison at reggaedod@aol.com if you require press accreditation or are unsure of our photography policy.

Who is playing and what day to they play on?

As bands are confirmed, we'll post them on the LINE-UP  page. We cannot confirm which day a band is playing until all bands are booked and the days / stages have been sorted out. So whilst a band maybe advertised as confirmed, please don't ask us when / where / what time they will be playing. We will update the LINE UP  page to show this information as soon as it is ready. Until this is up on the site it is not possible to tell you what bands play on a particular day.

Accommodation - Where Can I stay?

Please check out - www.visitblackpool.com 

Blackpool is a busy UK seaside resort and has many Hotels, Bed & Breakfasts and Guest Houses. There are lots of hotels and inexpensive Bed and Breakfasts in Blackpool many of which are adjacent to the venue (check out Albert Road and Adelaide Street). At the moment there is no camping facilities however this is being looked at. If there was camping however it would be quite a distance from the venue.

Travel Info?

Blackpool is on the North West Coast of England - the nearest major cities are Manchester and Liverpool. There is an airport at Blackpool offering limited services.
