22 Sep 2017

We're a few days away from By The Sea 2017 so why not get acquainted with some of the artists who'll be joining us in Margate!

+F

The 3rd edition of By The Sea will hit Margate in a few days time. 3 days of music, theme park rides, sunshine (hopefully!) and sightseeing.
To get you in the mood, we're turning the spotlight on the artists that fill the bill. Today we’re kicking things off with our Friday night headliners.

WHO: Flamingods - International Psych Explorers

LATEST RELEASE: Kewali (2017)

WHAT THEY SAY: "This the only sound we know how to make, and it's the only sound we want to make."

WHAT OTHERS SAY: "The band is obsessed with cultural exploration, taking inspiration from the extensive collection of instruments they've amassed from Asia, Africa and the Middle East. This sense of geography is reflected in the band itself, which is split between continents – Rasool and Prest are based in Dubai full time, whilst fellow members Karthik Poduval, Craig Doporto and Sam Rowe live in the UK." - VICE

"They’re just an amazing, feel good, festival band. So definitely check out those guys!” - Rob da Bank

CREDNTIALS: Signed to the ever great Moshi Moshi, the band started as a bedroom project - 4 albums strong and a new EP just out - full steam ahead...

FOR FANS OF: Cristobal & the Sea, HMTLD, Francobollo

WHY PICK THEM?: If you like a wealth of exotic instruments that make rich, unusual textures these are your guys!
