Preview: Beach Break Live 2012

By on Thursday, 23rd February 2012 at 9:00 am

Beach Break Live, now in its sixth year, has announced their line-up for their summer 2012 soiree. Billed as “the much loved UK student festival” (really, what better environment can you have to celebrate the end of the school year, the summer and great music than an actual beach?) and boasting sales of over 20,000 tickets in past years, this year’s event will take place the 14th to the 18th of June in Pembrey Country Park. The headliners will be Chase and Status (live) (Friday the 15th), Dizzee Rascal (Saturday the 16th) and one of our personal favourites here at TGTF, Friendly Fires (pictured above, to perform on Sunday the 17th). We would also recommend Nero (Friday), Brother and Bones and the Whip (Saturday) and Dry the River (Sunday) as those not to miss.

You must be at least 18 years of age to take part. Early bird tickets are sold out, but regular student tickets (if you are either a current student or just graduated student) are £109 plus a booking fee. Non-student tickets are £129 plus a booking fee and are for “anybody who has not studied within an institute of “higher” or “further” education or has graduated more than 3 years prior to the 2012 event”. It’s a little confusing even to me, so I encourage you to read more information, including whether you are buying your tickets through a “rep” or not, on the official Beach Break Live Web site.


After the cut: the weekend line-up as of 21 February 2012.
