The Soundcrash Funk & Soul Weekender is a unique three day music festival taking place one of Britain's treasured holiday camps in the picturesque seaside resort, Camber Sands. As the name suggests, the weekend is all about funk and soul music but also features hip-hop, tropical, afro-beat, world, disco and house.

There is lots more on offer besides the music such as live band karaoke, DJs, brass bands, music quizzes, dance classes and crazy golf tournaments. You won't have a spare minute to get bored with fun and games aplenty. Don't miss out on disco yoga, chalet parties, a tropical pool party, a record fair, jazz boogie  and dance classes. The park has its own supermarket and restaurant onsite plus various fast food outlets and a cashpoint. Of course, there are also plenty of bars and a good range of craft beers available.

What we love about this festival.

The novelty-factor of staying at a kitsch seaside holiday camp.
