What is it?
The Wheels and Fins Festival is a free, three-day, music, action sports and beach festival. This year’s event will take place on Joss Bay Beach in Broadstairs, Kent, from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th September.
The Wheels and Fins Festival, a relative newcomer on the Kent events calendar, is now entering it’s 4th year. Thanks to the passion and dedication of a small team, and an army of local volunteers, the festival continues to grow year upon year.
The Wheels and Fins Festival aims to pull together everything that’s great about the Kent coastal lifestyle; action sports, beautiful beaches, great food and exciting music. The festival will feature an array of events including Soapbox Racing, a Skateboard Mini Ramp Competition, the UK BMX Flatland Championships, Surf and Stand Up Paddleboard events, Trail Bike Display Teams, Mad Drop Air Bag, and Slacklining. There will also be fireworks, live music, DJs, licensed bars, craft beers, a food court, and merchandise stalls.
The Soapbox Racing is the festival’s flagship event. There are adult and children’s races, and competitors gather from all over the south east to try to win the King of the Hill title.
This year’s music line-up will include Gentlemen of Few, Adamski, The Accidents, and We Are Bandicoot.
