The Cause has not long since closed its doors and now they will be one of the first summer festivals in the UK. Taking over Pontins in Camber Sands from Friday 20th to Monday 23rd May, it will be a non-stop musical marathon of some of the finest selectors the team can muster for an all-out party whilst they find a new home. Added to the lineup amongst the above includes ANGEL D’LITE, BLASHA & ALLATT, BLUETOOF B2B PAPA NUGS, DJ HEARTSTRING, EICH, ELIZA ROSE, ELL MURPHY, EMERALD, GENE ON EARTH, KIRK DEGIORGIO, KIWI, LUXE, SHY ONE and T.DUNN plus more.
Already announced acts include HELENA HAUFF, OBJEKT, CERA KHIN, ASQUITH, PANGAEA, OBJECT BLUE B2B TVSI, CHIPPY NON-STOP, IVAN SMAGGHE B2B SEAN JOHNSTON, DANIELLE, CROSSBREED’S KIWI, TASHA, KIARA SCURO, TOSHIKI OHTA, ANGEL D’LITE and GOLDIE to name just a few out of over 150 artists performing over the entire weekend.
Much of The Cause’s ethos will be kept in tow for this show as the venue is transformed until multiple dance floors, such as the arcade centre, a 24 hour on-site boozer, the laser zone, secret rooms and pool parties each day.
Alongside the music, there are all sorts of classic holiday fun to be had. On-site expect amusement arcades, go-karts, crazy golf, pool halls, an urban gym, and a huge pool with an inflatable aqua course which will also host several pool parties each day. Off-site will be an array of local attractions including watersports, boat trips, kitesurfing, bike hire, nature reserves, village pubs, restaurants, and beach bars.
With a full lineup of over 150 artists, expect banging sound systems sprawled across every corner of the site including the pub, arcade, swimming pool and more, in keeping with the spirit of our old Ashley Road home for three days of non-stop music. For some calm away from the rave, we have the added bonus of all accommodation on site, as well as one of the UK’s nicest beaches just minutes away for the best of both worlds. Adonis will be hosting a bespoke area across three days, with other London LGBTQI+ favourites Fast & Bi-Furious, Crossbreed head Kiwi, Big Dyke Energy and performances from East London’s queer cabaret Mecca The Glory, and Costa Del Tottenham favourite Touché. Its going to be a special weekend.Stuart Glenn, Co-founder of The Cause
After closing the legendary Ashley Road site on the 2nd January, raising over £8K for charity from the last ever event alone, the innovative arts & events organisation is switching things up once more for 2022. The Cause Seaside Beano will bring all the best bits from The Cause to Camber Sands, home to soft golden sand and clean blue sea in East Sussex.
