Beachdown Festival 2009
If you're coming to this, Affy and Ali from GBB will be playing on the first day of the festivities from 4-7pm in the main bar area aptly entitled The Beach Bar (3 hours in the on site boozer, nice booking)
The Festival runs for four days over the last weekend in August and features some fairly impressive djs and live acts as well as some of Brighton's favorite club nights and underground party crews/djs dotted about the place.
It looks like Beachdown are gearing the event towards a less commercial festival crowd again this year with an expected 10,000 strong audience being treated to some major performers and dj's including Grace Jones, Laurent Garnier (Live) Grandmaster Flash, Derrick May and A Guy Called Gerald amongst those fronting the dance line up this year.
Also a must is The Dub House Disco project which features Greg Wilson, Weirdo Police, Kathy Diamond and The Soft Rocks boys. Not sure when or where on site this is yet but expect this to be a really popular part of Beachdown that's definitely not to be missed this year if you're up at Devils Dyke in August.
The key performance areas include
Concorde 2 Brighton Band Stage
Radio Reverb / Access to Music New Talent Arena
Electronic Arts Arena
Favela Chic Arena of Stupidity
Jah Shaka Dub Shack
The Bus Stop
Cabaret / Comedy Tent
Looking forward to catching all of the above and more besides plus local players Deep Systems, The Balearic Juke Box, Kliks and Return Of The Funky Man at some stage over the whole weekend up on The South Downs.
