Review of Soultasia - Southend
Would you recommended: Yes
Great line up tonight!
Had a brilliant time, food was a bit expensive
Such a shame it rained. We left at 8 pm. Would have loved to stay longer but we were soaked through. Great atmosphere and great music. Big thumbs up xx
I bought a ticket asked numerous times for a carers ticjet which i never received so i was unable to go without my carer, gutted and would like a refund but i doubt thats gonna happenâ?¦..
Would you recommended: No
We had a great night very organised We would definitely do it again

I loved this event. Ran on time. Drinks good value for money. Food good value for money and no queues for drinks or food. Had a fabulous time!
The event was excellent but it would be a good idea to make it clear that chairs were permitted and that food and drink were prohibited. The price of food and drink on site was very expensive.
family event great music lovely atmosphere
Nice day out
Great to have our age range everyone was friendly chatty including security would not hesitate to book again

Really enjoyed the music hood atmosphere good crowd, my only criticism was some of the prices inside, 3pound 50 for what was pretty much half a cup of coffee and 4 pounds for a small tray of chips, 3 pounds for a tiny ice cream
I paid top price to be in VIP the forecast was rain all week on this day it was uncovered with a tiny marquee near the bar not the stage but there was a huge marquee with nobody using it at the back of the main event field. I paid for 4 tickets to treat my friends and it was embarrassing . Bar staff and toilet facilities were excellent. That was not VIP
When I paid for those tickets a few years ago it was premium plenty of nice seating covered in our section so we could still dance when it rained!
We went home at 7.30 as there was no place to shelter for us all.
The rain ruined the event, and people weâ??re leaving early. Not as good as previous Soultasia event I attended at Maldon. Heatwave were good and Lemar and Jaki Graham excellent. Odyssey came on last but raining hard and spoilt it. Looking forward to different acts in future.
We had an amazing time despite getting drenched from the rain. Well organised and plenty of room to dance. VIP tickets were well Worth the money. Posh and spotless toilets, private bar area and just a few feet from the stage.
The host was a true pro, as was the DJ playing brilliant music. As for the artists, weâ??ll all I can say is they were awesome! So will definitely be going to another event.
Thanks for a truly wonderful time,
Rubbish line up!! Crowd were not entertained!! It was stop start all day plus started 1 hour late!
Great event just a shame about British weather!
Been to 2 soultasia events both great days, you won't be dissapointed
Brilliant day out the event was also run fantastic would highly recommend
Superb day, we went VIP well worth it!!
Had a wonderful day even though it rained. Thought it was a bit expensive just to get some shelter from the rain and given the price of the tickets a bit of a cheek really. Drinks were extremely expensive too. The bands were good though and a very impressive stage set up
Had a good afternoon / evening , only spoilt by the rain
Oddessey weren't great and neither was sound quality for part of their set but rest were very good
Drink prices extortionate
Toilets too dark
Music OK not the best
Great afternoon and night of nostalgia enjoying some music from my youth. Stage and grounds good, sound could have been slightly louder as not so impactful further back but good view wherever you were standing, bar quite expensive just makes you drink less not more ( maybe that’s the plan !) good choice of food outlets and not too overcrowded which made it comfortable. Shuttle bus to get there from stations would have been helpful also. Great event thank you for organising.
Great event and second time we’d gone to soultasia this year. Great music and atmosphere. Can’t wait until the next one.
Brilliant day and night, rained all evening but still a party atmosphere, the host was fantastic as always, would definitely go again x
Radio Essex Staff
Fantastic day out , can’t wait for the next one !
great event although Odyssey could have been better and sound was interrupted but all round good day.
Well done to all the teams - backstage zero radio presenters, security, cleaning staff etc great job. All the acts performed professionally. There was nothing you could e done about the rain unfortunately! Danced all day fab event!!
Awesome event well worth a visit put ya dancing shoes on ...?
It was a really good day and night. We love the soul events.
Awesome day atmosphere and music ?
Great evening/night just a shame about the weather
It was a fantastic afternoon/evening, the atmosphere was great everybody dancing. The only disappointment was that it rained very heavily from about 5pm onwards and so many people left before the final acts performed as we got absolutely soaked. For me the best performance that got everyone party dancing and in the mood was 'Heatwave', they were awesome. Thank you
Was a fab day, apart from the rain later on! But we loved it, Great artists, well organised, and quick change over between the acts! Will def b coming again!
Shame about the weather otherwise would have been perfect
Always have a good time at these events - pretty well organised. Food options good, but think drink are slightly over priced
we had a brilliant time even though it rained.
cannot wait for there next event
Apart from the rain it was a great event. My only criticism would be that at times the music was louder than the singers especially during heatwave.
Brilliant day out despite the pouring rain!
Acts were amazing!
The event was well planned and the stadium area well constructed.
There were a lack of rubbish bins so litter piled up quickly on the ground. The artists did their best but with a small crowd, torrential rain and lots of empty space the event lacked atmosphere. Many drunk people, smoking and careless of others' space needs meant l felt compelled to leave by 7pm.
Drinks very over priced. The one in Malden was 100% better than this one. The line up of artists wasn’t as good as the one in Malden.
Absolutely brilliant. Poured with rain but didn't spoil the night at all.
Not much food choices and quite expensive
Bar prices way too expensive (£5 for can larger)
Great venue but would welcome the big top back as the audience are open to the elements. Some sound issues last night and would prefer more acts with a live band rather than singing to backing tapes but can't complain as tickets are cheap enough.
Absolutely brilliant ??
So well organised
Even the rain was made fun by the artists & DJ's who motivated & lifted the audience.
I can't wait for next year!
I was not impressed on the fact that you was offering extra £10 to upgrade into my vip gold area - that’s really not fair to do this as I booked this because I wanted space, nice toilets and own bar. If you are offering upgrades like that on the door what’s the point in me pre booking this type of ticket
Great event, very well put together. Friendly staff. Clean & tidy. Was a little disappointed at the revamped songs, wanted to hear the original versions. Though not the venues fault.
Was spoken to by a security guard like we was a bitof dirt, calling us names, rude man he was and vile
great afternoon, shame about the rain but nothing you can do about that. really well organized, also you feel really safe there which is great for people who go by themselves, always someone to talk to and laugh with and dance of course
Brilliant line up - we partied on despite the rain!
Great music great venue really enjoyed the day easy get to and also for parking . Food was yum good Selection.
Shame it rained the whole event but still a great day
Great show shame about the weather but still thoroughly enjoyed it
Was my first time at an event at Garons, the artists were fantastic and we (5 girls) had a fab day and didn’t let a little thing like torrential rain spoil it lol ?? would deffo book another event and recommend people to, well organised
Great night, bar prices are a bit high though.
Unfortunately I was ill so I couldn’t go but was disappointed there was no way of getting a refund or reselling the tickets. I tried from the Thursday before.
Not many people there but good atmosphere- heatwave very good - same as Maldon drinks prices way too much 5 quid for a can of lager is a rip off!!
Fabulous music and great atmosphere!
Ticket prices good, however food and drink was a rip off. We would have purchased more but just felt prices were far too high, such a shame as the event was really good.
Great night down memory lane! Despite the rain we danced under our umbrellas ?
Well done who all took part in organising the venue enjoyed it till next time
Fantastic venue, staff were extremely helpful, my daughter is wheelchair bound and everyone made her day special (despite the rain)
Great event, great music. . Not so great they had run out of a lot of the drinks due to timing of event
Great music great venue we had a great time definitely will go again ?

Having started the evening having our bags and chairs searched for alcohol, (which we didn't carry), we soon realised why after never visiting Garons before people go to this extent. You could not make it up in a book how expensive the cheapest drinks you could buy in shops were at this event. Disgraceful. This included food too by the way, as you aren't allowed to take in a picnic either. I think that although music is trying to get back on it's feet after this ongoing worldwide pandemic, so are the customers! The gig wasn't that full to start with and as we left even less, after two songs from Odyssey, who were the headliners and the sound was shot to pieces, we cleared off home with many others , moaning about it as we splodged through mud and rain. However, Lemar, Jacki Graham and Heatwave were fabulous.
Great music, good facilities and parking was close by too.
Only negative was the weather but it did not stop the music, and did not stop the dancing.
Good value event.
Fantastic afternoon and evening, even the weather couldn't dampen the great day we had
Great event but shame sold out of white wine by 4 pm and not allowed to take own drinks in!
Could have had more staff at the bar. More cover from rain would have been appreciated. Lights in porta loos would have been helpful
Mrs Michelle Sayers
Absolutely amazing venue and the music was brilliant. Even the rain couldn't get us down it poured so much we were drenched shame it wasn't undercover.
We'll definitely be back for more events ð???
It was a brilliant event great line up. Shame that it rained. A lot of people left before the finale.
Considering it poured with rain the whole time we had a fantastic day - the only problems were lack of wine ! on arrival at the venue before 4pm there was no rose wine and an hour later there was no white wine left - not impressed
Loved this venue, nice and close to home. It was in no way as good as Maldon, but it was still good.
It was a shame about the weather, but it didn't stop us enjoying it. If possible always try to book VIP well worth the money .
Maldon soulista was far better
Southend was ok.
Soultasia was brilliant, had a good time just a shame it rained half way through, but we stayed never the less, and enjoyed the rest of the artists, I would recommend Soultasia to all my family and friends ?looking forward to next year.
Great bands, the music in between was very good too. Only criticism would be the gaps between the later bands. It was heavily raining (which I appreciate you cannot control) and people were leaving, it would have been good if there was less of a gap so the artists weren’t playing to a lesser crowd. Organisation was good, plenty of parking and good varied choice of food available.
The order in which the artist came on was all wrong, there was a point when damage was on and it seemed like they were rushed to come off. DAMAGE was the most entertaining by the way. There was also a long pause between each artist, and the dj failew to bring the smirit of the crowd up....... While we was in the rain. LINE UP WAS GREAT but it failed in every orher part. Left early
Amazing day …. Even in the pouring rain….
fantastic! well organised, great music, well presented, the security were so professional and polite. loved it so much we booked southend after attending Windsor and will book again next year!
Absolutely fantastic. A great afternoon & evening out with great music, and great people. Well organised, great DJ’s with music at its best.
Well recommend. Thank you Zero Radio for another great event. Looking forward to the next one xx
Had a really lovely time would go again
Great concert despite the weather
We had a fantastic time. I would definitely recommend this event and venue to anyone. Only one critic and that is the cost at the bar. £5 for a cheap can of beer. If they lowered the prices they would sell more.
