Info: The Herne Bay Festival was created in 1993 as part of a Town Centre Management initiative, aiming to celebrate the town and bring the community and businesses closer together. Such was the popularity for its large programme of events and warm atmosphere that the festival quickly grew to be one of the most successful community-focused events in Kent.

21 years later and the festival is still going strong. With huge support from the local community, who host many of the events, we are able to offer a programme of over 100 events during the 9 days. Almost every event is completely free, and offers all ages the opportunity to watch or try something new. The festival is perfect for families looking to spend some vibrant weekends by the coast, or those who’d like to relax on one of the best coastlines in the area.

Every year we have ‘Festival Favourite’ events including a Children’s parade, live music from the best local bands, a giant family picnic, the monster crab catching competition, Herne Bay’s Got Talent (our very own talent show) and a fantastic fireworks display. There is enough to see and do for all the family, so come and join us in this brilliant August celebration.

Based around rich three-part harmonies, with raucous, tumbling rhythms and equal penchant for loverlorn heartbreak and giddy good times, they're fast rising as one of the most talked-about new folk bands around.
With a jam-packed gigging calendar, their wagon looks set only to accelerate further in 2012.

Time and Date: July 19, 2012 - July 22, 2012

Location: Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire Cambridgeshire

Artists: Molotov Jukebox, Slamboree , Perhaps Contraption , Kazimier Krunk Band, Brassroots, Tankus the Henge

Info: Like never before, we are aware of our unique position as a social animal. The carnival of the Olympics, the phenomena of the 2012 prophecies, the arrival of the seven billionth human, the dawn of the urban age: ours is a human world. Yet these ‘mass collective moments’ hint at a richer history, a more varied landscape of ceremonial occasion that ...have bound men together across the ages, that have reinforced and reinvented that most remarkable of our achievements: society.

This year, as The Garden celebrates her 10th Birthday, we explore those ceremonies, rituals, initiations, anniversaries and carnivals that bind us together, that emphasise matter over mind, that emphasise our true gifts as humans: social existence.

Great Britain has only recently emerged from a period of restrictive manners, customs and hierarchy. The explosion in the middle of the last century, of freedom, sexual liberation and rebellion, represents a volcanic eruption of the irrepressible lava of human expression. The Secret Garden Party, along with all modern hedonic gatherings, has direct links to this awakening and release of the human spirit.

So get your thinking caps on. Dream your own anniversaries, your own ceremonies, your own initiations. Don’t be a spectator, don’t be part of a passive congregation. Create gatherings and parties that breakdown the walls of inhibition, shyness, the other, the stranger. We are already naked, so use your freedom to unite with your fellow Gardener. 2012 is not the end of it all – it is merely a rallying call to unite, to come together, to reinforce the ties that bind.

Working with festival programmers and producers, the Hot Wuk Festival showcase will help ensure that reggae and dancehall are well represented at events throughout summer 2012. Jamaica celebrates 50 years of independence this year while the Jamaican Olympic athletics team led by Usain Bolt will ensure that Jamaica is on everyone's lips.

Plus Ras Kwame's Orange Hill and dancehall producer Curtis Lynch with his Necessary Mayhem sound will play futuristic and foundational reggae vibes.

Wormfood and Global Local present African Rootmaster festival showcase

Time and Date: 8pm, March 9, 2012 - March 10, 2012

Maverick Gambian griot Jallykebba Susso mixes traditional Mandinka kora music (beautiful melodious 22-string West African harp) with 8-strong international band Manding Sabu drawing on rock, reggae and afro-beat; 70-year old master of the Algerian mandol, Seddik Zebiri, displays his unique take on the music of North Africa that ends up sounding like a psychedelic, Hendrix-inspired desert blues thanks to his powerful band Seeds of Creation.

Hotly-tipped new live project Afriquoi fuse live marimba, African guitar, djembe, African vocals, dancehall MCing and crisp, heavy beats into an uplifting, dance-friendly blend of chimurenga, soca, soukous, dubstep and house: afro electronics! Featuring legendary exiled musicians Kudaushe Matimba (Zimbabwe: Bhundu Boys, Harare) and Fiston Lusambo (Congo: Zong Zing All Stars), alongside UK Ableton wizard Nico Bentley and percussionist Andre Marmot, this is African music for the facebook generation….

All of this washed down by top tunes from across the African diaspora courtesy of Mr. Brett, driving force behind South London’s gritty hi-life/afrobeat/funk sensation Yaaba Funk.

Gypsy Soundclash

Time and Date: 7.30pm - 1am, February 10, 2012 - February 11, 2012

Location: Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London, E1 6LA City of London

Artists: The Great Malarkey , The Kaimier Mobile Krunk Band, DJ Chris Tofu

Info: Get your stomping boots on, dust off your hats and buckle your braces for a rip roaring gypsy bonanza


The Great Malarkey


Foot stompin', rabble rousing, joyous mis of East European, Latin, blues, punk and folk. The Great Malarkey play songs of friends, lovers, riots, night terrors and the Dalston job centre. These are the kids you didn't mess with on the playground, and you wouldn't mess with them now: an instrumental call to your arms with lyrics that simultaneously sling an arm around your shoulders and punch you in the stomach


The Kazimier Mobile Krunk Band


A self-amplified dance orchestra of the people, The Krunk Band are yet to be seen on a stage, preferring instead to mingle among the crowds. With trumpeting fanfares and bish-bash-bosh percussion, you might hear some 19th century cancans from a souked-up barrel organ or an accordion-let tribute to a 90's dance classic.

Latin Quarter Special

Time and Date: 8pm , January 27, 2012 - January 28, 2012

Manzana Tropical is a brand new act playing a form of Peruvian Cumbia known as Chicha. Brought up in London’s thriving Latin American scene, young musicians Manuy and Cleyder Figueroa are taking inspiration from their Peruvian heritage. Their music embodies influences from classic Peruvian acts as well as guitar based Latin acts like Santana, and then they mix it all up with a hot London vibe. The band also contains experienced musicians from one of the finest Andean fusion acts – Kausary - who have played at most of the UK’s top festivals and have toured extensively in Europe.

FlowSnatcha sees Cuban MC Floiran and Swiss-Argentinian DJ / Producer The Snatcha connect for a heavy hitting musical cross pollination that affirms the contemporary versatility of Afro-Cuban beats. Anchored in sound of the Caribbean and Cuban Hip Hop, blending in elements of Dancehall and Moombahton with electronic dance music (House, Dubstep, and Breakbeat), soulful vocals and a touch of Merengue, Timba and Swing, the FlowSnatcha formula gets you moving instantly.

Remolino Kieto burst on to the London scene with an addictive, masterful sound that combines Andean rhythms with psychedelic Latin rock, romantic bolero and reggae influences. High energy, well-crafted tunes with soul. Musical inspiration ranges from Led Zeppelin to Pablo Milanes, Janis Joplin and Omara Portuondo. The band features some of the UK's top Cuban musicians; drawing on the strong songwriting of lead singer Ramsay Estevez.

Warmi was born as a 5 piece band in October 2011, in London, during an event dedicated to the Cultural Resistance of the Indigenous from the Abya Yala (America in their Native Language). The all-female line up features world-class musicians playing a mix of traditional songs and original compositions.With Phaxsi Coca and Vicki Cespedes, from Bolivia, on Kena and Panpipes; Paloma Palomino, from Peru, on Charango, Guitar and Vocals; Corina Piatti, from Argentina, on Vocals and Guitar and Renu, who has family roots in India, from London, on Percussion.
