Music and beer and a view of the sea…
This weekend (6-8 July) The Hastings Beer and Music Festival sets up shop on the cliffs above the UK’s first officially-branded ‘music city’.
Technically this particular ‘city’ is actually the districts of Hastings and Rother all rolled into one…but that technicality aside, there is no doubting that between them they have more live music per square metre than you can shake a drumstick at.

Tickets range for £12.50 for a day to £40 for the weekend, although there is also a £5 family ticket available for the Saturday daytime.
