Fishers Gin Beach Club
Curated by OUR HOUSE
Open 24 hours across the weekend
Welcome to the Fishers Gin Beach Club – your 24-hour spot for drinks, dancing and great music throughout the Festival. Our friends and Norwich party starters Our House have drafted in some of their talented pals for non-stop music programming across ambience, energy and styles.
Effy Mai, Ravers Wine Bar, Tadi the Great, Havez and Levi Fruits will take you through an afternoon of upbeat soulful sunshine sounds, deep disco grooves and everything in between as the solstice sun sits high in the sky.
Get ready to dance with the sand between your toes to the eclectic sounds of Worldwide FM stalwart and Run Dem Crew Founder, Charlie Dark, as the sunlight fades, the moon rises and the stars come out.
Kick back through the night as Wild Paths wind the tempo down as they take over for a starlit session of late-night jazz, improv and world music.
When the pink light starts to creep over the horizon, drift away in an Ocean of Sound as Noise of Art create a sunrise experience soundtracked by spiritual jazz, dream pop and Brian Eno’s classic ambient and new age albums – themselves inspired by memories of the “empty landscapes” of his childhood right here on the Suffolk coast.
On Sunday morning we’ll be bringing you a rejuvenating session of jazz, blue-eyed soul, yacht rock, gospel and afrobeat as we set the mood for Sunday Brunch provided by chef Nicola Hordern – click here to find out more about Sunday Brunch.
