The Soundcrash Funk & Soul Weekender will now be heading to one of the most exciting sites in the country – enjoy an incredible line-up of world-class musicians at Dreamland with its free vintage rides, street food, art, yoga and even a roller Disco!
Heading up the bill are party-starting acts including the legendary groups TOOTS & THE MAYTALS and SISTER SLEDGE, GEORGE CLINTON & PARLIAMENT-FUNKADELIC on their Farewell Tour, BBC 6 Music crate digger GILLES PETERSON, and the group at the centre of the UK jazz renaissance, EZRA COLLECTIVE. Plus many more acts!
Expect to be dancing into the early hours with some of the finest selectors and artists from across the world including the pulsating HYPNOTIC BRASS ENSEMBLE, soul-jazz great ROY AYERS, BBC 6 Music’s very own CRAIG CHARLES, Good Times head honcho NORMAN JAY MBE and more very special talents!
Dreamland is the beating heart of Margate and just a stone’s throw from the beach, with a vintage amusement park with family and thrill rides. It’s the perfect venue to settle down for a few days and enjoy a superb seaside weekend, blending good times with unmissable talent. Margate is dubbed ‘Hackney-on-Sea’ in reference to its renaissance as a hub for artists and musicians. It is the ideal setting for a festival which blends cutting edge sonic exploration with some out-and-out legends of the game.
Expect the festival to be full to the brim with its trademark secret parties, cabaret, disco yoga and the best in soul food and craft beer.
A truly intimate festival, created for an audience that loves music and good times. See you in May!
