The Great British Alternative Music Festival returns to Butlins Skegness Resort and gives the genre a chance to live and breathe in a relaxed festival atmosphere. You'll see live performances from original acts with real pedigree and history, along with new and upcoming performers, all in the company of like-minded fans. Plus their warm indoor venues and modern bars mean that you can enjoy live acoustic sets, all culminating in an immersive live Alternative music experience.
Right by the beach, Skegness is the perfect party location – non-stop music and entertainment by night plus so much to do and fantastic facilities to enjoy by day. There's a fantastic choice of action-packed pursuits and places for relaxation, and much of it’s free. Exclusive to Skegness is the Spa, the perfect place to relax and chill out before partying until the early hours.
Included in the music weekend: 3 nights’ accommodation / Access to all bars, facilities, and live music venues / Live performances from big name acts / Beautiful seaside location.
Here's a link to the Festivals For All review of The Great British Alternative Music Festival Skegness sister event in Minehead 2020 for just a flavour of what goes down.
"GBAMF has its own atmosphere; it’s the gathering of the clans, with some of the originals of the punk movement, to celebrate not just the music, but an entire culture. There is a strong bond between the people here, and no wonder. Survivors from the 70’s witnessed the entire punk ethos, be it the tunes, the fashions, the attitudes, the politics, the anarchic world view, attacked and vilified by the established order."
