Does your soul need an uplift after the dreary rain over the past few days… well bring it down to Margate for a much needed refresh. With the sun promising to be high in the sky this weekend, come and sizzle by the sea and enjoy the Margate Soul Festival.
The Margate Soul Festival began sixteen years ago with a sound system and an intimate crowd of soulful music lovers. It is now one of the UK’s biggest street parties, spread across multiple venues. An eclectic mix of soul inspired music including soulful house, jazz funk, boogie & reggae will get the streets of Margate boogying the weekend away. This is a ‘whole town’ experience for a dazzling day out.
Tickets, available on a daily basis or for the whole festival, will get you entry into the main stage indoors and outdoors at the Winter Gardens, where stars including Deniece Williams, Daisy Hicks, The Brit Funk Association and Children of Zeus will also be performing. Dreamland will be part of the fun and various fringe stages will be set up all around town. The streets are set to become an open air extravaganza of free music and entertainment for the whole family.
A colourful Rio Style carnival parade will get you in the party mood and when you want to cool off Margate’s clear waters and blue flag beaches are a 'shells' throw away.
Delicious street food will be plentiful around the picturesque harbour and the shops in and around the Old Town are brimming with goodies for some retail therapy after all that dancing. Artisans & Adventurers will be open extended hours on Sunday from 10-5pm and we can't wait to welcome you to our town.
Come for a day, a night or for the whole weekend. Come and share the Soul of Margate with us and discover why we love this place so much.
See you this weekend.
