Welcome to The Soundcrash Funk & Soul Weekender 2019! We hope you’re looking forward to the weekend as much as we are. To get you off to a smooth start, please read the information below so you can make the most of your festival weekend!

Venue Information

Our main beach venue is the centre of the festival. Its’s based on Madeira Drive, postcode: BN2 1FY. Because we are using several venues in Brighton, the capacity of each venue does differ. Please note, for popular artists, this will be delivered on a first-come-first-served basis. If there is a particular artist you would like to see, please ensure you get down early to ensure you can enter the venue. Last entry to the beach venue each day is 10.30pm.

Wristbands and Entry

Your wristband is your entry ticket to every festival venue during main festival timings. It cannot be replaced if lost so PLEASE DO NOT LOSE THESE. You need to pick up your wristband at the wristband exchange on Madeira Drive. Just head down to our beach venue to pick this up. If you’re coming from the centre of Brighton, head to the East of the pier, and the site is around 5 minutes walk along the road, shortly after Volks.

The wristband exchange opening times are:

Friday: 12pm-10pm

Saturday: 11.30am- 9pm
