Chainska at Lifes a Beach

Chainska at Lifes a Beach


Life’s a Beach at the IOW Festival 2014 went with a bang and was our largest and most creative urban beach design yet.

The sun shone and made the beach the perfect place to relax with a smokin’ cocktail on our bespoke natural beach furniture whilst checking out the beach stage and the impressive graffiti and sand art.

All our acts were amazing (thank you) and brought the beach alive. Particularly popular as always was the islands very own Derek Sandy who got the crowd singing and dancing and Chainska who filled the beach and got everyone ska-dancing, and of course the loveable, Loveable Rogues put on a typically bold and lively performance to a packed (and hot!) beach.

Dagny was beautiful, the Hoosiers put on a slick performance, Kitten and the Hip were jumping and we had a surprise appearance by James Smith from Britain’s got Talent who we know we’ll all be seeing a lot more of.

A happy sunny weekend was had by all!

See you next year…..

Lifes a Beach at the mighty Isle of Wight Festival will be kicking off in 23 days and is coming back bigger and better than ever with a massive 1600 square metre temporary urban beach.

This year the theme is Newport Beach with graffiti artists, sand art, fire eaters, pallet furniture and a large undercover area (just in case!), beach bar and the finest glistening golden sands to sink your tootsies into or build your best ever sand palace. The sand artists will be talent scouting.

In the top spot on Thursday night sees the return of the cheekiest boys in pop the “Loveable Rogues” who packed out the beach last year.

Friday night’s headliner is still to be announced.

On Saturday the beach stage is being headlined by one of our favourite bands ‘The Hoosiers” who have just released a mighty fine comeback album.

And popular electro swing set up ‘Kitten and the Hip’ are headlining on Sunday.

Also working the beachstage will be a diverse array of new musical talent with ska/reggae sounds whilst the sun shines and pop and electro swing taking us into the twilight hours. Our resident DJ Damian Walsh will continue the party with his classic house party anthems into the small hours.

There’s no need to feel guilty about not visiting the beach whilst on the island this year! Grab your flip flops and bucket and spade and join us for a beer on the beach at the IOW Festival 2014.

See you on the sand…..
