Margate Soul Festival releases cut-price residents tickets

Margate Soul Festival

Margate Soul Festival has launched low price residents passes for this year’s event.

The annual festival, which runs from August 2-4, has this year expanded to include 19 venues across Margate.

Residents of postcodes CT7 to CT12 can buy day passes (Saturday 3 Aug, Sun 4 Aug) or weekend passes (Fri 2 Aug – Sun 4 Aug) for a reduced fee.

Day tickets are £53.90 and weekend passes are £77 inclusive of fees. There are limited numbers of these tickets.

This year’s festival has a new beachside main stage (under the Lido sign), new free music stages such as the Balearic Beach Boutique (Jo Mills, Nancy Noise, Dean Thatcher, Chris Coco) and Disco Heaven in Margate’s Old Town.

There are the most late night venues the festival has ever had, showcasing the UK’s best soul DJs from MiSoul Radio (Brandon Block, Gordon Mac, Ricky Morrison) Soul Beat Radio and Zero Hour Radio plus local talent from Margate Radio, and other long-standing festival favourites. Secret after parties include an exclusive set from XPress2 at Margate Leisure Centre on Saturday 3 August.

Venues run from the beachside Sun Deck opposite the train station to Bar Nothing and Margate Leisure Centre in Cliftonville, spanning spots such as Turner Contemporary, Barnacles, Whereelse and many more.

They will be linked by a free Margate Soul Train which will run between the train station and the key venues and main beachside stage. Ticket holders will have priority over the weekend.

Margate Soul Festival has sponsored a beach clean by Rise Up Clean Up on Sun 4 August, and has commissioned local gardening group Wilderness to Wonderland to create a series of reusable planters for Margate.

Using eco-generators and low power lighting, partnering with key environmental charities and partners and giving back £1 from every ticket sold to local community groups is key to the festival.

Locals tickets need to be swapped for festival wristbands at the festival Box Office at The Lido (from Fri 2 Aug, 11am) with two forms of ID with your address on it, which must include one form of Photo ID.
