Latest update from Rockaway Beach Festival
🎳 Six years ago today we booted the last of you out of Butlin’s after the first ever Rockaway Beach. It was a hell of a ride. We had performances from PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING and Young Fathers just before they went stratospheric, were lucky enough to have the late Mark E Smith and The Fall play in Reds, plus transcendental headline turns from Spiritualized, Johnny Marr and our first appearance of our belov’d Echo and the Bunnymen. What really hit us though is looking back and realising how many of those people from year one are still with us, whether it’s you guys cheering from the crowd, or new friends who’ve helped build the festival since 2015 who are all now part of the family. It’s an odd corner of the music world, but dammit it’s ours. See you in January 2022.
