State of Mind has forged a partnership with Summer Fest to promote mental health through the power of music.

Summer Fest is a family-friendly, accessible three-day festival taking place at Ewood Park, home of Blackburn Rovers FC, on May 27-29.

The stadium will welcome up to 30,000 music fans per day.

Legendary British musicians The Human League, Boy George and Culture Club and UB40 headline the days.

Other performers include Tony Hadley, Midge Ure and Heather Small.

Behind the event is Tony Baldwin, who partnered with former Wigan and Great Britain star Andy Gregory many years ago to start putting events together.

State of Mind will have a presence across the weekend to promote the perfect partnership of music and mental health.

Music helps your mental fitness and gives you a total brain workout.

Dr Phil Cooper MBE, State of Mind co-founder and trustee, said: “State of Mind Sport are delighted to partner with SummerFest 22. Music has a positive effect on our mood and can reduce anxiety.

“It can improve your memory, lower your stress and make you mentally sharp.

“We look forward to being part of an exciting and entertaining weekend.”
