MARGATE SOUL FESTIVAL 20th ANNIVERSARY – 2022
The UK’s most anticipated Soul Festival is back. Margate Soul Festival takes place on Friday 5th August to Sunday the 7th of August 2022, bringing together an exciting international line up over 3 days.
Margate Soul Festival is the UK’s signature soul event held annually on the first weekend of August. It began in 2002 on Fort Hill (Carnival Corner) with Eli, Olby’s, a sound system, local guest DJs and an intimate crowd of music lovers. It is unique, being the only town centre festival in the UK, offering both ticketed and non ticketed events attracting over 20,000 per day to it’s variety of stages.
Over the years it has grown steadily, until in 2015, when the partnership with Gordon Mac and the team at Mi-Soul Radio turned into into a worldwide phenomenon, attracting festival goers from across Europe
Our main outdoor arena ‘The Redstripe Sunset Stage’ overlooking the sea, provides the backdrop to 2 days of live music, DJ’s and dancing, whilst The Margate Winter Gardens and Olby’s Soul Cafe offer 6 rooms of music for thousands of happy people throughout the weekend. And the free stages dotted around the Old Town give it a unique feel.
The 2022 Festival will distill 20 years of soul and sunshine, in a regenerated Margate, and we will do everything to make it the best yet – a very special Margate Soul Town weekend experience.
