Porridge Radio, Jarv Is and Tricky are heading up next year’s Rockaway Beach

Everyone to Butlins.

Porridge Radio (pictured), Jarv Is and Tricky are heading up next year’s Rockaway Beach.

The event will take over Butlins in Bognor Regis from 7th-9th January, with not only music but film screenings, artist Q&As, pub quizzes, listening parties, bowling, and arcade games.

Also on the bill, are PVA, Big Joanie, bdrmm, Walt Disco, Italia 90, Lonely Tourist, Nuha Ruby Ra, I See Islands, and Grandmas House, with plenty more still to come.

Festival founder Ian Crowther says: “We just didn’t know back in January that we’d be one of the only live music festivals of the year. Since then it’s been so dark out there, personally and as a music fan. We’re now seeing glimmers of light at the end of the tunnel though, and we thought it was important to carry on building next year’s festival – to make it as big as we could. With this summer still looking uncertain for so much live music, we’ll all definitely need to blow off some steam by then. JARV IS… is somebody we’ve been trying to get hold of for a few years. He personifies the smart, weird nature of what we’re about at Rockaway Beach. We’re so happy to finally announce this is happening. We’re excited to be putting some good news out there. To be saying that, even if we need to make a few changes, we’re very much planning on being back in 2022.”
