We’re sure you’ve all heard of the Ventnor Fringe Festival – we’ve been banging on about it for the last eight years – but there’s another new festival in Ventnor that you should know about.
The Ventnor International Festival takes place at the same time as the Fringe, with all the acts appearing on one day – Friday 11th August – in a fine array of unusual venues from warehouses to churches and many more.
Tickets for the day and night of music are just £30 (book here) – an unbelievable figure for the quality and quantity of acts you’ll be able to see.
One of the hottest line-ups
The team have pulled together a curated programme of the very best up-and-coming artistes, from the multi-instrumentalist Cosmo Pyke to the brilliant garage punk band from Spain, The Parrots.
From midday onward expect interesting, quirky, eclectic, passionate, uplifting live music from Bad Sounds (pictured), CHAMPS, Childhood, Dead Pretties, Girl Ray, Happyness, Moses Boyd, Puma Blue, Nakamarra and many more.
It’s going to be a great day to take off work and will only cost you £30!
