The Libertines By The Sea festival gig moved from Dreamland to Margate Winter Gardens

By the Sea festival headliners The Libertines have changed venue from Dreamland to Margate Winter Gardens.

Frontmen Carl Barât and Peter Doherty, and all support acts for their gig, have moved to the Winter Gardens due to crowd numbers.

A statement from Margate Winter Gardens says: “ Due to capacity constraints, By The Sea’s Sunday event featuring The Libertines and supports, will now take place at the nearby Margate Winter Gardens venue.

“Friday and Saturday’s events featuring Everything Everything and Metronomy will remain at Dreamland with access to the theme park open to ticket holders on Saturday and Sunday, with guest DJs on the Sunday at Dreamland, plus other activities across Margate Old Town.”

Those who have already bought their Sunday inclusive wristbands for the festival will have access to the new venue.

There are also now 100 additional tickets on sale from 2pm today (July 28).

The Sunday day ticket is £39.50 plus booking fee. The event is for those aged 14 and over. Anyone aged 14-16 must be accompanied by an adult.
