Our main stage on the site of the  historic musical pavilion will host music from a wealth  of amazing talent from the South East.

Listen to the sounds whilst enjoying the glorious views of the sea.

THE LOUNGE LIZARD STAGE

Just to mix things up a bit, the Lounge Lizard offers something different.

Acoustic sets, spoken word, music journalism masterclasses, music workshops, creative films and maybe a bit of Capoeira.

JOURNEY TO THE DEEP STAGE

A sea creature inspired stage, featuring the great and the good of the local, young music scene.

The open mic, busking sessions might just be that moment when you get dicovered!

BUSKING KIOSK

A chilled out vibe with a full line up of DJ’s and hip hop artists.

Watch the sun go down with a cocktail and let the music carry across the waves.

DRESS UP!

Get that dressing up box open and unleash your inner animal with a ZOOQAURIUM inspired costume.

Let your imagination run wild! Prizes for the best dressed.

ACCESS

The pier is fully accessible for wheelchairs with disabled toilets and a lift to the upper deck. Mobility scooters are allowed at 2mph. For the festival an additional disabled viewing area will be added for main stage viewing.

If that isn’t enough then visit the Grazing Ground for fine food and drink stalls, band and festival merchandise, Rock Star photo booth, glitter tattoos, henna painting, live portrait drawings  or maybe a cocktail in the Pink Flamingo on the Upper Deck is all you need to complete a great day at ZOOQUARIUM on the pier!
