GoldCoast Oceanfest: Summer 2014

GoldCoast Oceanfest is back, taking over Croyde Bay Beach in North Devon for the 16th consecutive year on Friday 20th- Sunday 22nd June.

Just steps away from Ruda Holiday Park, this midsummer weekend offers three days of fantastic music, the coolest sporting events, all the while looking after the awesome environment surrounding the festival.

Great music comes hand in hand with the beautiful GoldCoast; the line-up this year includes Newton Faulkner, Natty with hit singles Badman & Bedroom eyes, Mason Jennings well known for his simple yet catchy melodies and Hudson Taylor who’s debut EP ‘battles’ reached number one in Ireland iTunes and number 14 in the UK iTunes plus many more exciting artists.

Check out the unforgettable line up right here. Oceanfest brings together local talented musicians with some of the biggest named artists creating an eclectic mix of musical talent.

Some say the very backbone of Oceanfest is the tremendous array of competitive sports across the weekend. We’re talking surfing, beach volley ball, beach soccer, paddle race, surf lifesaving and ultimate Frisbee. GoldCoast champions will be defending titles across the skate ramps, sand and sea, but do you think you have what it takes to take the crown away?

Sign up to the largest open beach volleyball event in the UK right on Croyde Bay, take part in the Parkdean beach King & Queen event on the Saturday or the Sunday pairs competition.


If that’s not enough for you, take part in, Matt’s Circus workshops, Little Miracles Yoga sessions, creative drawing, acoustic sets, slack lining, batak walls, beauty treatments, simulated triathlon, giant jenga, exhibitions and sampling booths AND, back by popular demand, the Animal WD-40 Action Sports tour will be blowing minds with brilliant mountain biking, BMX & Skateboarding action.

With a little something for everyone, families aren’t forgotten either, child, adult and family tickets are available HERE. Prices start from just £40 for 3 days for Children or buy a family ticket which entitles two adults and two children to 3 days of festival fun for just £140.
