An impressive line-up of performers will be taking to the pier head stage over the weekend, including:

  • Silver Darlings: an all-female shanty crew from Southend.
  • Levent & Taylor: Essex-based duo will perform their original gypsy-jazz, Latin and world music.
  • The Dusty Peddlers: A local four-piece offering up some foot-stomping, country, folk, and rock ‘n’ roll good time music.
  • Valley of the Dolls DJs: an all-female DJ collective, will bring a party atmosphere to the pier.
  • Stewart H: Resident DJ at Essex-based Funky SX radio will groove the pier with funky beats.

In addition to live music, visitors can head to the Offshore Restaurant at the pier head to enjoy a selection of artisan gin and rum cocktails, expertly mixed to complement the festival atmosphere.
