New festival takes place in October

Johnny Marr, The Fall and Spiritualized are among the first wave of acts confirmed for Rockaway Beach Festival.

The three day event is due to take place from October 9 – 12 at Butlins‘ Bognor Regis.

Festival Organiser, Ian Crowther of The Way of Music, says “The inspiration for Rockaway Beach comes from the excitement of hearing great music for the first time. I wanted to bring together a selection of today’s leading alternative artists to showcase new music. Butlin’s Bognor Regis was the first choice location as all show venues are indoor with exceptional sound quality. On-site accommodation and access to great food and drink means that we can give festival-goers the best weekend experience. Rockaway Beach will be an intimate festival allowing audience and artist to get close and share their love of music.”

Other acts confirmed so far include The Telescopes, The Monchrome Set, The Band Of Holy Joy, Pinkshinyultrablast, Whyte Horses, Cult of Dom Keller, Lola Colt, St Deluxe, Matinee, Skinny Girl Diet and Miaoux Miaoux.

Early bird tickets are on sale now for a limited period only and include accommodation and access to all live music venues.
