By The Sea Festival 2018
Unfortunately By The Sea Festival 2018 has been cancelled. You can read the full statement from the promoters below. Festicket customers will be contacted regarding refunds.
"Due to a recent decrease in the saleable indoor capacity of the Hall By the Sea at Dreamland, this will sadly mean that we are no longer able to continue to host an indoor By The Sea festival event in the same form as previous years.
This will not affect the other scheduled/announced Dreamland events, but unfortunately does for the more bespoke set-up required to make By The Sea what it is.
This will come into immediate effect, meaning that September's 2018 event is unfortunately no longer going ahead. We offer our sincere apologies to all our loyal festival-goers, and hope you understand this was something beyond our control and a very recent development.
Looking forward, the good news is that we will be moving the next edition of the festival to earlier in the year – specifically the summer of 2019 – and have some exciting ideas in the works... more to be revealed in due course. Following three sell-out years, we are truly looking forward to growing By The Sea into its next phase, utilising this now-fallow year to get ahead of the game on each and every detail. We will be revealing all the details about that soon."
By The Sea is an indie and alternative rock music festival at Dreamland: Margate's iconic amusement park.
Its lineup is made up of a mix of big-name headliners – think Foals and The Libertines – alongside smaller, underground artists making their way into the scene.
This platform not only gives these artists a huge leg-up, but also makes By The Sea a great festival for discovering new and emerging sounds.
