About the Festival

This year on the 7th and 8th of June, Electric Beach Festival returns for what is promising to be the greatest beach party the UK has ever seen on the golden sands of Watergate Bay.

The previous two years have seen New York hip hop legends De La Soul take to the stage alongside acts such as Akil from Jurassic 5, The Nextmen, Soul II Soul, Swiss Lips and many many more. Thousands of sun and sea worshippers descended to the sand for what turned into some of the best beach parties of all time.

Grandmaster Flash, Zion Train, Sam and the Womp, Dizraeli and the Small Gods, Lloyd Yates, The People’s String Foundation and Running Numbers are just a few of the acts announced to rock the beach this year. Also the main man, DJ Maseo from De La Soul will be returning to play some all time classics.

Electric Beach in 2014 has changed it’s format and is now 2 full days, with camping available nearby.

O’Neill is also sponsoring the event and adding an incredible surf element with the O’Neill expression sessions showcasing some of their best pro surfers.

TICKET PRICES INCLUDE ACCESS TO BOTH DAYS
