Multiple Brit Award winning, indie-rock band, KAISER CHIEFS have been announced as the headliners for Oceanfest17 - as Croyde’s award-winning Surf and Music Festival celebrates its nineteenth consecutive year!
Devon’s favourite family festival welcomes to the Friday format a DJ set by SIGMA. Fathers Day, Sunday 18th June, is fast becoming the 'guilty pleasures day' at Oceanfest and hanging with ‘Pops' this midsummer Sunday will be GENTLEMENS DUB CLUB supporting the sing-a-long sounds of Sunday headliners SCOUTING FOR GIRLS.
If you could bottle a beachside festival and pour it out each year against the backdrop of a sun drenched Atlantic, then the multi award winning GoldCoast Oceanfest might be just the brew to choose.
It’s big enough to create a great party atmosphere,yet small enough to not be overwhelming.
Oceanfest blends a potentially intoxicating, eclectic and laid-back mix of quality music, exhilarating surf, action packed sports, locally sourced food and family‑friendly fun.
