What we love about this festival.

The soulful vibe.

Camping and Glamping Options

This is a one day event, so there is no camping on site; however, you could easily make a weekend of it and stay in beautiful Brighton to explore a little more!

This is an over 18s event. If you have little ones to bring, check out Funk the Family, on the same site but the next day.
