By The Sea Festival 2016 In Pictures

A look back through all the seaside shenanigans from our sophomore year

+F

Last weekend RFB put on a massive seaside party in Margate's piece de resistance Dreamland: a restored theme park replete with arcades, rides and two rooms chock full of some of the most exciting live artists around right now. It was, if we say so ourselves, a roaring success (don't believe us? Ask The Guardian and The Times) and we're already plotting our next moves for By The Sea's third birthday next year.

For now, however, take a look back through all the action from this year, from Jarvis on the dodgems to Wolf Alice's final live show of the year.
