Mix retro rides with modern music at By The Sea in Margate's Dreamland, the party that's in a pocket out-of-time.
Hidden in the Dreamland theme park, By the Sea is a festival alive with vintage charm and a youthful spirit. Now attracting artists of all kinds, Margate is fast becoming a bohemian haven. This is epitomised by the festival's intimate stages and eccentric side shows. See the roller disco transformed into a mosh pit and DJ sets delivered from a dodgem booth. It's a perfect eclectic mix of forward-thinking music and the romance of seaside holidays past.
Headlined by indie favourites such as Super Furry Animals and Wild Beasts, along with a smooth side of Anna Merdith and the Mystery Jets, By The Sea is not to be missed.
By the Sea runs from 30 September to 1 October.
