Sports Team have shifted their Margate bus trip back a bit.

The all-dayer, originally booked for Saturday 10th July, will now take place on Friday 23rd July at Dreamland. Performances come from Sports Team (obvs), English Teacher, Courting, Bull, Tv Priest, Los Bitchos and more TBA.

“I think like everyone we’ve felt fairly crushed by the relentless cancellations,” says frontman Alex Rice. “You’ve got a load of bands around desperate to play and it’s got to the stage where the quickest route to doing that seemed to be putting on a day festival ourselves. We’re taking Bus Trip to Dreamland on the day that should’ve been Truck Festival to raise money for the Stagehand Crew Relief Fund and Music Venues Trust. That matters, because we want to play a part in keeping together all the infrastructure that makes touring and playing music in this country feel like the greatest thing in the world. Also it makes me feel a bit like Geldof. So it’s cheap tickets, coastal, barely organised, first big weekend, Friday night, 23rd July. Have at it.”

Pick up tickets here. Sports Team’s debut album ‘Deep Down Happy’ is out now.
