The Saturdays and JLS To Play The Isle Of Man Bay Festival

Based over thThe Saturdays and JLS To Play The Isle Of Man Bay Festivale weekend of 18th, 19th and 20th June 2010, The Isle Of Man Bay Festival is a boutique festival that has brought together a diverse array of talent that will see three nights of pop, nostalgia and for the first time ever a live collaboration of the TV sensations X-Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.

The Bay Festival has emerged out of the Peel Bay Festival of 2007 that saw The Who, Madness, Ronan Keating, Robin Gibb, Mcfly and many others perform on the Isle Of Man over seven day’s during the legendary annual TT motorcycle race.

Festival organisers have now made the festival a three-day camping event, while keeping the essence and diverse roots of the original event. The Friday evening is going to be a modern day Top Of The Pops live with Britain’s biggest pop acts JLS, The Saturdays and Lemar all take to the tented stage.

Having made one of the most celebrated comebacks of the past 20 years the mighty Spandau Ballet will be making their first ever appearance on the Isle Of Man on the Saturday evening. Also on the bill are pop rockers The Feeling and chart sensation Calvin Harris

The final day is a plethora of the old and new. In the afternoon X-Factor Meets Britain’s Got Talent where finalists from each show such as Olly Murs, Leon Jackson, Diversity and Signature bring TV to life. In the evening it is the turn of Here And Now, The Very Best Of The 80’s… Rick Astley, Boy George, Kim Wilde plus other legends of the 80’s will bring the weekend to a nostalgic pop filled dance fest end.

Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp said, “We’re thrilled to be headlining the Saturday evening on the beautiful Isle of Man. Calvin Harris and The Feeling will be hard acts to follow but following our recent tour dates, we know that we will be putting on an amazing show for fans old and new.”

Lemar said, “I’m delighted to be involved in the first Bay Festival over in the Isle Of Man. Being part of a line up that includes JLS and The Saturdays is going to be great and will make got a really fun evening. As I’m promoting my greatest hits album it gives me an excuse to play a greatest hits set, so I’m looking forward to that. Hopefully this will be the first of many to come.”

With a huge pile of evidence stacking up to suggest that Dougie Poynter and Frankie Sandford have split up, a source close to the pair has told us that it IS true.

We posted a story days ag about the rumours that Dougie and Frankie were no longer together. It was producer Dallas Austin that got the ball rolling by branding Dougie as ’single’ during a Ustream broadcast from the studio.

Well now a source close to the pair has told us that it’s true, ‘Dougie and Frankie have actually split up’.

Our source told us that details about why the pair split were unknown, but mentioned something interesting about how one of JLS may have caused friction in their relationship.

This is particularly interesting because our spies noticed the following post on Dallas Austin’s website in December last year: “I’m pissed now because my man, DOUGIE – yes, DOUGIE is dating a girl named FRANKIE from a group called the SATURDAY’S. She’s been out with a guy from JLS while he’s been in the A and its been in the press in the UK. I just hate to see a friend disrespected.”

It was just last month that Frankie was papped leaving Aston Merrygold’s birthday party, celebrating the star turning 22 at Alto nightclub in London – two days after we spotted Dougie at a Lostprophets gig, having a laugh with his mates.

Bandmate Rochelle Wiseman was snapped with other JLS boy Marvin Humes, hand-in-hand, after a dinner date at The Ivy on Friday. Check out the News Of The World for pictures and the full story.
