Newquay Beach Fest

Newquay’s Electric Beach Festival

Widely regarded as the UK’s greatest beach party, the Electric Beach Festival returns to Fistral Beach, Newquay on Friday 8th until Saturday 9th July 2016 to mark its fifth anniversary.

Just 15 minutes from Newquay Holiday Park, the two-day event will see a host of international artists and rising stars perform at the festival, which is geared up to be the largest beach party yet.

Located on the golden sands of Fistral Beach, the festival is nestled amongst jaw dropping cliffs and is perfectly positioned on the UK’s most iconic surf beach. Backed by pretty sand dunes, the festival is popular with couples looking for a romantic getaway, who attend the two-day event to be wowed by amazing live music, whilst sampling award winning locally produced beers and ciders.

Previously, the Electric Beach Festival has welcomed numerous music legends including: Grandmaster Flash, Soul II Soul, The Cat Empire, Alabama 3, Jurassic 5, Dreadzone, Zion Train, The Nextmen and lots more.

This year the line-up will be even more impressive, with punk/folk band Levellers set to headline the festival on Friday night. Renowned for their amazing live performances, massive crowds and platinum selling albums, these festival veterans have been entertaining crowds since 1988.

On Saturday night, the legendary American hip-hop trio De La Soul will be sending the crowd wild at the Electric Beach Festival, as they are welcomed back to the Cornish Coast for a second time.

Other acts performing include dub/dance pioneers Zion Train, the amazing Imperial Leisure and Bristol collective Dr Meaker. A full list of confirmed acts can be seen here.
