Kent’s leading music and action sports festival, Wheels and Fins (7th – 8th September 2019) has announced that global dance powerhouse, Ministry of Sound, will take over ‘The Bunker’ dance tent on Sunday 8th September. The mega club brand brings a giant line-up of house, bass and garage stars, including Noisia, Redlight, DJ Zinc, Barely Legal, Emerald, Harriet Jaxxon, Just Geo, Chris Thomas and a full live set from Killer Hertz. Situated at the stunning Joss Bay in Broadstairs, Kent, Wheels and Fins is a boutique, beachside festival that mixes up quality music alongside the best bits of skate and surf culture. Various ticket and camping options are available from www.wheelsandfins.co.uk, with an adult weekend ticket costing just £75, making this a fantastically affordable event to attend this year.
The seventh edition of Wheels and Fins is set to be the best yet with a new, larger site, and a carefully curated mix of sporting and musical fun. Entertainment-wise, guests can look forward to some special demos from the best pro-skateboarders in the scene as they battle in the ‘UK Mini Ramp Champs’ and, for the first time at Wheels and Fins, a number of pro-skaters will showcase their nerves of steel as they take to the 12.5ft vert ramp. Elsewhere, the programme is packed with a wealth of activities including, axe throwing, beach yoga, sand sculpting, SUP racing and surf competitions, plus a food village of mouthwatering street food for a much needed refuel.
Musically, Wheels and Fins mixes the best in live and electronic music over 3 stages. Already announced for the 2019 event is the pioneering drum ‘n’ bass label, Hospital Records, who’ll bring stars such as S.P.Y, Kings Of The Rollers, Logistics, Nu:Tone, Etherwood, Whiney, Uncle Dugs, Inja, Dynamite MC and Degs to ‘The Bunker’ on Saturday 7th September. The live lineup for the ocean-facing main stage, is yet to be announced, but if last year’s talent of The Libertines and Echo and The Bunnymen are anything to go by, there is another treat in store.
To the Sunday of the 2019 festival, Wheels and Fins is thrilled to announce that Ministry of Soundwill take the reins from Hospital Records and turn ‘The Bunker’ into a Ministry superclub.
