Our Post-Summer Festival Guide



By The Sea Festival

29th Sept – 1st Oct 2017

As the name suggests, By The Sea festival sits right by Margate’s coast and is, this year, hosting a plethora of indie, alternative and rock acts for you to enjoy – all whilst exploring Kent’s scenic coastline and indulging in an ice cream or two.

With something for everyone, this year’s line-up includes ‘90s electronic band Metromony, indie icons The Libertines and cult-band British Sea Power. Also joining them is experimental indie band Everything Everything who, after the success of their last album ‘Get To Heaven’ in 2015, have just released their new record ‘A Fever Dream’ which has received outstanding 4 star reviews from both NME magazine and The Guardian.

Alongside the nearby beach and on-site fairground, the festival finishes at roughly 11PM every night – with the exception of Saturday night’s after party, making it a family-friendly weekend away that the kids can enjoy as well. So if a weekend in Margate to indulge in some great music, relax by the seaside and brave the heights of the Ferris Wheel seems up your street then buy your tickets now to avoid missing out!
