Named after the famous and notorious smuggler Joss Snelling, Joss Bay beach in Broadstairs, offers one of the finest sandy beaches within an easy commute from all over the South East. It is also the closest recognised surf break to London. Over the summer months the beach plays hosts to thousands of surfers and visitors soaking up the sun and the mellow vibes. The festival is only an hour and a half from the capital making it a day trip for any beach thrill seeker. Not many festivals around the UK can boast that.
There is no onsite parking but we can offer you car parking space from the campsite around 400m away from the festival. Please click here for details…
Trains run regularly from London St Pancras to Broadstairs; via Margate or Ramsgate.
