Rockaway Beach announces second wave of acts to 2015 lineup

22 July 2015, 11:28 | Written by Ben Curtis

Rockaway Beach, the UK's newest post-summer festival, has announced a second wave of artists set to perform this year. Young Fathers, Public Service Broadcasting and The Fall are set to join headliners Echo and the Bunnymen, Johnny Marr and Spiritualized at the three day event, held at Butlins, Bognor Regis.

Rockaway Beach, in its inaugural year, still has more artists to announce, plus daytime sessions and film screenings. Artists already confirmed include Ghostpoet, Nadine Shah and Du Blonde.

Festival organiser, Ian Crowther, from The Way of Music, said:

“The inspiration for Rockaway Beach comes from the pure excitement of hearing great music for the first time and will bring together a selection of the best emerging, breakthrough talent and established alternative artists. Of course, many festival-goers are buying tickets because of the legends playing. Johnny Marr is a god-like genius in every sense of the word, a true icon of independent music. Echo & The Bunnymen and The Fall are some of our greatest legends of post-punk. But what’s special about all of these stars is that they are still creating, still being absolutely brilliant, and playing music. Rockaway Beach will be an intimate festival, allowing audience and artist to get close and share their love of music.”

Rockaway Beach takes place from 9-11 October, with prices from £79 including accommodation. Tickets are available now.
