Pierless Music can now reveal to you the line up for the 2013 Hastings Beach Concerts.
The gigs will take place on Saturday and Sunday, 3rd and 4th of August. They will be held in their usual spot, just next to the Lifeboat Station.
As with any event like this, the line up is subject to change.
Saturday 3rd August – 1 to 9pm:
The Rhythm Section – Ugenix – The Vindickers – Dead Rabbits – King Bathmat – Anita Jardine – Tusk – Harry Osborne.
Blair – 90% Proof – Under The Covers – The Fabulous Red Diesel – Star Scream.
As usual, there will a collection for the RNLI and there will also be a bar provided. Because of this, gig goers are asked not to bring their own alcohol.
Also, because of insurance restrictions, no BBQs are allowed on site. Please respect this.
At Pierless Music we are very happy to see so many local acts who write and perform their own music included in the line up this year. That’s great to see and let’s hope that it becomes a regular feature.
You may remember that Tony Streeter wrote a blog post for this site some time ago explaining what went into putting an event like the Beach Concerts on. It was certainly an eye opener. You can read it here:
Tony mentioned in that post that it costs approx £4,000 to put these gigs on every year. This years Beach Concerts have been made possible by donations made by Bob Faulkner of The Carlisle. So, many thanks to him for helping to enable these 25th anniversary concerts to go ahead. Happy silver anniversary.
Of course, any post about the RNLI Hastings Beach Concerts is a great opportunity to watch, once again, the late and great John Martyn performing there back in 1991. Great stuff. See how many people you recognise.
Thanks to Tony Streeter and everyone involved with the Hastings Beach Concerts for all their hard work in helping to bring Hastings these wonderful gigs every year. They have become a fixture in the local calendar and long may they contune to be so.
