Shiiine returns to the wonderful Butlins Minehead Resort 16th-19th November 2018 for what promises to be another cracking mash-up of a weekend.

Take our word on this – Shiiine is absolutely splendid; our FFA Reviewers were simply blown away by the sheer excellence of the 2017 bash. Just take a looksee at the FFA Shiiine On Weekender 2017 Review for a flavour of what to expect.

"Shiiine captures the vibe of a whole generation. It’s a melting pot. An annual pilgrimage for like-minded souls to meet and bond, whatever their musical peccadillos – why? Because they were there. It was their time. "

Butlins Holiday Resorts are genuinely 21st century leisure experiences, and their Minehead location is fabulous; indeed, our FFA reviewers are really sold on the concept of winter indoor festivals, as they offer the best of a gig / cabaret / festival vibe with none of the hassles - with a range of accommodation and dining experiences to suit all tastes and budgets. Trust us, there is nothing better than a warm bed and your own facilities during a full-on party weekend… and what a party Shiiine delivers. Multiple quality auditoria, top-on sound, great bars and restaurants, a wonderful crowd, pool parties, plenty of non-music offerings, and 2018 once again offers a top-notch line-up.

Ocean Colour Scene, Shed Seven, Orbital, and EMF lead the line – but the depth and quality at this event is evident right across the whole weekend. Remember Shiiine is multi-genre. It successfully manages to capture the entire mood and culture of a generation, with everything from Rock, Folk, and Indie, to Alt, EDM, maybe a bit of Acid-Jazz, and truly off the scale musical malarkey in the mix. Old cliché, but if anything about the late 80’s / early 90’s is your bag then you’ll find Shiiine is right on the button, with ‘something for everyone’ on the tag line. Don’t be fooled – the Shiiine audience is as diverse as the music, with all ages and backgrounds grooving to a rather unique Shiiine Weekend vibe. Like all great festivals - the audience at Shiiine is as much the event as the location and the music. There is a wonderful buzz to Shiiine and FFA can’t wait. There is still some availability [HERE], so why not join FFA in Minehead for what is destined to be something all rather special.
