Adventure Island has announced some of the local acts taking part in its inaugural Island Fest music and arts festival, set to take place across the Southend park on 4 September.
The event aims to platform the best bands, artists, and fashion designers the seaside town has to offer, with performances scheduled over three separate stages throughout the day.
“We have wanted to hold an event like this for a while to help to celebrate and showcase the talent of Southend,” said park director James Miller. “The last 18 months have been difficult for those in the world of the arts and celebrating their hard work through our event is more important than ever.”
“Our event is the same week as the Southend Arts Festival, which again is celebrating the skills of those in the arts around the Town. We hope you all join us to celebrate the talent of the town that we are showcasing on 4 September.”
Local unsigned talent including The Waterfalls, Chloe Diana and Looseleaf, will perform on the Main Stage, while acts such as With High Regards, Cameron Fellows, and Connor Bines will entertain audiences on the West Stage.
The Mega City Arena will also host Sasha Potgieter, Kayleigh Burgess, Catalina Grosu and Georgia Paige.
