Chase the January blues away with a month of foot stomping, heart-pinging, hip-shaking tunes at Dreamland Margate.
We’re proud of you; you survived the most miserable month of the year. No booze (right?), cash strapped post Xmas, chilled to the bone and already fed up of that personal trainer who won’t stop texting you motivational phrases.
But now the trials of the new year are out of the way, you can commit to a much more realistic new year’s resolution – listen to more live music.
We have some incredible gigs to start 2019’s season of tunes, with intimate gigs to dance extravaganzas, so take a look at what’s on in February and join us down by the sea.
What’s On This February
Beans on Toast
Fri 1st Feb, The Ballroom
Cult folk Legend Beans on Toast kicks off our month of music – and our Independent Venue Week celebrations – with an intimate gig of hits from his new album ‘A Bird in The Hand’. If you’re a fan of Frank Turner or Scroobius Pip, you’ll want to stroll along to this one. Support from Jess Morgan. Tickets from £15 + booking fee.
Leftfield DJ set
Sat 2nd Feb, Hall By The Sea
Legends of the British electronic scene, Leftfield have been on the cutting edge of dance music since the 1990s. Founder member Neil Barnes will shake the Hall by the Sea with his DJ set, promising an eclectic mix of old and new house/techno that will leave you panting for more.
Support from DJ and producer A Guy Called Gerald, tickets from £15 + booking fee.
Brutus Gold’s Love Train
Fri 8th Feb, Ballroom
Throw your expectations out of the window – this is a disco like no other. The man who made Tina Turner dance all night, and who Hollywood star Owen Wilson called ‘totally awesome’, is rolling into Margate. Not only will you dance the night away to the greatest soul, funk, Motown and disco hits of the 1970s, but you’ll also be treated to an incredible show with stunning sets and stellar performers. Here’s a little taster… Tickets from £15 + booking fee.
Southbeats Presents Hannah Wants
Sat 9th Feb, Hall By The Sea
Southbeats are back at Dreamland, and have brought electronic angel Hannah Wants along for the ride. A world-renowned DJ with a bag of awards to her name, Hannah’s UK and IRE 2019 tour has nearly sold out already – but you lucky people can catch her tearing up the Hall By The Sea this Feb. Tickets from £20 + booking fee
The Magic Gang + Phil Taggart at SLACKER
Fri 22nd Feb, The Ballroom
We’re guessing those of you who are ‘really in the know’ need no introduction to SLACKER – the brain-child of Radio 1’s Phil Taggart, the now legendary music nights mix live performances from some of the UK’s biggest rising stars with dancefloor fillers from Phil himself. And it’s also a pretty slick podcast! Headlining the Margate show will be low-fi indie pop quartet The Magic Gang, with support from TOUTS. Catch them all in the beautiful Ballroom while you can! Tickets from £15 plus booking fee.
Coming up in 2019
Happy Mondays, Craig Charles, Dub Pistols, and those sensational Sunset Sessions – we’ve got a lot to look forward to in 2019 already, with even more acts and events due to be announced in the coming weeks.
