Dates: 7th – 9th October 2016
Location: Butlins, Bognor Regis
Always a joy to see a festival where new names that don’t fall into the usual seasonal buzz band category play alongside revered cult legends and big names. Securing its reputation for strikingly smart line ups, Rockaway Beach has just confirmed another crop of artists including We Are Scientists, The Horror’s Faris Badwan and Rachel Zeffira’s orchestral pop side project Cat’s Eyes, fuzzpop purveyors Yuck and The Membranes, who will be returning this year accompanied by a choir.
Bell & Sebastian’s Chris Geddes will be taking on a DJ role, with CLINIC, FEWS, Ringo Deathstarr, Hector Bizerk, Joanna Gruesome, Desert Mountain Tribe and Girl Friend all set for live performances.
Artists will appear over three programmed days of music and DJ’s, in multiple venues within the Butlin’s Resort. The grounds also feature hand picked film screenings, tenpin bowling, go karting, swimming pools, arcades, and multiple bars and restaurants.
