De La Soul to headline Beachdown
United Kingdom | |
02 April 2008
De La Soul, The Maccabees, Lightspeed Champion and Reverend And The Makers are among the first acts confirmed for Beachdown
Festival near Brighton.
Others just announced for the August bank holiday event include Terry Callier, Roy
Ayers, Infadels, The Hat and Freakpower.
Festival will set up camp on the outskirts of Brighton, sprawling itself across the nearby South Downs
from 22–25 August.
Other acts include Azymuth, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Jah Wobble All-stars and
Amp Fiddler with many more to be confirmed.
The 11,000-capacity festival aims to be as carbon neutral
as possible and will employ a number of energy saving and environmentally friendly tools.
There will be eight
buses an hour running from Brighton to the festival site and back from 10am until 1am, which means all local festival goers can
leave their cars at home.
The parking facilities will be located off site, so as not to disturb or damage the
natural environment of the south downs, but near enough to walk to and from.
Food stalls on site will offer
locally sourced and organic menus, some of which will be offered by local brand name restaurants.
