The event will not only celebrate Flack’s passion for music, dance and comedy, it will also help raise critical funds and awareness for multiple mental health charities that Flack personally supported.
What is Flackstock?
The day will be packed with a variety of acts, with live music performances, comedy and the chance to celebrate the Love Island host, who died by suicide in February 2020.
The committee behind the festival’s creation and lineup includes Flack’s mother Christine, her sister Jody and many close friends such as Jill Francis, Natalie Pinkman and Dawn O’Porter who have helped plan the celebration.
“Flackstock is the wonderful idea of those who knew her best and the perfect way to remember her singing, dancing and most of all laughing,” says Christine Flack.
“Not only is Flackstock the most positive way to honour Carrie, but charities that she loved will benefit from the proceeds.”
All of the money raised will be split equally among four charities that were especially close to Caroline Flack. These include mental health outlets Samaritans, Charlie Waller Trust, Choose Love, and Mind.
What is the Flackstock line up?
There are still many more acts to be announced, but those confirmed to appear at Flackstock so far include Pixie Lott, Louise Redknapp, Fleur East and winner of Masked Singer Natalie Imbruglia.
Although this will be a reflective event there will be plenty to laugh about too, with comedy from the likes of Joel Dommett, Paddy McGuinness and Keith Lemon.
