Air Festival organisers are finalising the finishing touches to what promises to be an incredible Night Air programme, jam-packed with stunning dusk air performances, jumping Tigers, and top-notch entertainment in the Lower Gardens. And the jewel in the Night Air crown and brand new to 2012, is ‘Night Air Between the Piers’ live music programme.

2012 sees not one but two Corona stages providing live music, one at Boscombe Pier presented by Commercial Radio Partner Wave105, and the other at Bournemouth Pier, presented by Alex Dyke. Unlike anything seen before at the Festival or indeed staged in the resort, Corona Music Stage at Boscombe, in conjunction with Wave105, will be ticketed on the Friday and Saturday.

Jon Weaver Air Festival Director said: “We have worked closely with our Commercial Radio Partner Wave105 to bring an incredible programme to Boscombe and equally so with Alex Dyke at the Bournemouth Pier Corona Music stage. I can honestly say – we are going to rock the 2012 Festival!”

Jon Brooks, Wave 105’s Sales, Marketing and Operations Director, added: “We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with the Bournemouth Air Festival this year. This event is one of the largest of its kind and has positioned itself as one of the most attended annual events on the south coast.

“As well as providing coverage of the event, Wave 105 will be involved heavily with the Night Air programme. There are some big announcements to come and we aim to make the series of entertainment even bigger and better than ever before.

Returning for a fabulous dusk spectacular in not one but two Night Air displays will be the remarkable SWIP Team Twister Duo. It’s a stunning sight as are the breathtaking Tiger Freefall Parachute Display Team, set to jump from an incredible 10,000ft with glow sticks and smoke trails.

Family favourite the Saturday night fireworks will be twice the bang, boom and colour with an extra display on Friday night, to mark the Jon Egging Red Ball. Both displays sponsored by The Oceanarium and will take place at 10pm.

Night Air fun and entertainment continues in the award-winning Lower Gardens from 5pm. Don’t miss the Royal Marines Combat Recruitment Team perform their combat displays, Dodgy Totty’s quirky outdoor theatre, Barney Bay’s circus skills, shows from the Puppetree Company and the dangerous displays of FLAME with their flame fire shows!
