What people are saying about By The Sea Festival

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous festival. Excellent Headliners, Awesome Fringe Sets Had the most wonderful weekend of music courtesy of By The Sea Festival. Fantastic headliners each night and a wonderfully diverse set of support bands and fringe sets all the way through. Excellent job done by the organisers and can't wait until next year!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Friendly local event, great music, great fun. Thoroughly enjoyed By the Sea. Saw some excellent bands including Deep Throat Choir, Marika Hackman and Metronomy. Surprisingly good were Shame and HMLtd who I didn't know but loved. HMLtd were painfully loud though. Venues were excellent and staff were all friendly and helpful. Drinks pricing surprisingly low, and enough bars to ensure no queues. I cannot comment on food as didn't eat there. Overall a very good experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Festival, Great Location Really enjoyable weekend, great line-up and a great location. Really friendly crowd and staff/security. All given a slightly surreal edge by being in an amusement park. Friday night was a bit of a warm up, there's less on than Saturday, all the bands are on the main stage and the finish time is about 11pm. Everything Everything headlined and played a terrific set. British Sea Power were another highlight. On Saturday there's lots going on from about 1.30 ish at other venues in Margate Old Town to keep you going until the fun starts at Dreamland around 6pm. We loved Girl Ray, Snapped Ankles, and HMLTD particularly and Metronomy played a great headline set. A Greco Roman Sound System set until 2am kept us all from our beds! This was the 1st time the festival has run a full program on the Sunday and it was a bit of an odd one. There was the usual bands in the Old Town (we loved Rhythm Method in Olbys) then for the final evenings entertainment the action was at the Winter Gardens, the 1st two bands were in the smaller Queens Hall venue and were enjoyable (sparse attendance though) particularly Dream Wife, the final 2 bands were in the main hall and the audience was markedly different from the rest of the festival, basically local people who only wanted to see the Libertines, which was fine but a very different atmosphere from the rest of the festival. Personally I wasn't impressed with the Libertines, great songs but too shambolic and the sound was dreadful. It was fun though to be in a big rowdy enthusiastic crowd, the crowd made a pretty bad gig into a fun experience. Definitely going again next year!
