Organisers of the Electric Beach Festival are promising the best year yet with a new two-day format and hip hop legend, Grandmaster Flash.
Now in its third year, the festival has been spread over two days with a music and a surfy vibe. Headline sponsor O’Neill will be bringing their tour bus and running a surf competition alongside the festival.
Previous acts include De La Soul and Soul II Soul, and this year sees a headline slot for hip hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash. Other acts confirmed include Zion Train, Sam and the Womp and Lloyd Yates.
Festival organiser Ben Hall from Live Music Connections said; “The festival has been in such strong demand that we thought we’d bump it up to a two day event and also provide camping facilities nearby.
“The festival will open at 1pm each day and continue until the sun sets. We’ll have about eight acts per day consisting of DJs, acoustic sets, and bands including Sam and The Womp.”
Cornish brewer Skinner’s is also making a special Electric Beach Ale for the event.
Early bird tickets are currently on sale for £27.50. Three day camping tickets, which includes entry to the festival and a shuttlebus service, are available for £65.
