Forward thinking, event promotion team Soundcrash have recently announced plans to bring the popular Funk and Soul Weekender back to the coast from Friday 29th May to Sunday 31st May 2020.
Formerly held on Brighton's picturesque beachfront, the festival brings together a myriad of elements to create a one-of-a-kind relaxed, party atmosphere. Exceptional music covering many aspects of the two seminal genres, next level culinary delights and beverages, sun (if you're lucky), sea and a range of alternative entertainment, such as yoga classes and a roller disco, can all be found in plenty at this unique event.
Next year will see the festival roll into its new Margate home, at Kent's vintage Dreamland theme park.
The new location, considered to be Great Britain's oldest surviving amusement park, positioned on the South East coastline, will allow ticket holders to take full advantage of the numerous funfair attractions on offer, paralleled with a bill to rival previous lineups.
Already confirmed to appear on stage on the Funk and Soul Weekender 2020 line up are the likes of disco legends Sister Sledge, respected selector, We Out Here Festival founder and BBC radio 6 presenter Gilles Peterson, jazz-funk pioneer Roy Ayers, hip hop turntablist DJ Yoda and many more.
2019's edition saw of some the UK's finest musicians entertaining engaged audiences across the festivals various stages. Exemplary stand out performances from the likes of laidback ne-soul singer songwriter Yazmin Lacey, electronic production duo Maribou State and 9 man dub band, Gentlemans Dub Club were witnessed by all who attended, alongside a mesmerising display of talent from American jazz saxophonist extraordinaire, Kamasi Washington and many more.
