Mix retro rides with modern music at By The Sea in Margate
Margate is the place to be on-sea and there's no better way to immerse yourself in this coastal town's bubbling creative scene than at this weekend festival in early autumn. Taking place at the iconic Dreamland theme park, By the Sea combines retro fairground rides with the coolest indie acts around. Big names in indie perform in intimate spaces and DJs even take over the rides' sound systems; last year saw Jarvis Cocker spinning tunes from the dodgems booth. It's the perfect mix of forward-thinking music and the romance of seaside holidays of yesteryear.
By the Sea runs from 29 - 30 September.
