Apart from the weather and one individual, I thought last years went great for a festival in its first year. The security stopped the tents getting too crowded (not a good thing if you are outside) and there was plenty to do. There was at least 3 stages spread over 2 sites and cheap entry to some nightclubs. Due to the size of the place they probably can't have any one too big playing there, so last year it seemed to be the best of the local talent.

All worth checking out. Have I missed anyone else?

From Friday 22nd – Monday 25th August, Beachdown Festival will resonate across the South Downs in East Sussex. Finally music lovers from the south east of England will have the accessible, quality music festival that it has been longing for. In fact, quality is the name of the game for Beachdown, with its organisers hell bent on providing the very best of everything, from heavenly hygiene to the finest of foods.
According to eFestivals
The line-up includes De La Soul, Lightspeed Champion, Reverend and the Makers, Terry Callier, Roy Ayers, Infadels, The Hat and Freakpower, Russ Dewbury,Bah Samba, Azymuth, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Jah Wobble All-stars and Amp Fiddler. With more names still to be announced. As well as high profile names there will also be local talent from the Brighton music scene - club nights, record labels and DJ's are all involved.
Hopefully this will run smoothly and become a regular event, like the old Essential Music Festivals of yesteryear.
Their website can be found here. Only tickets are going to be £85 weekend tickets.

"The RAW Gallery is our new family run gallery dedicated to contemporary art in the true meaning of the word. Artwork that truly represents our ever changing and contrasting times, thoughts and emotions. Artwork that takes many forms from Stunning paintings to unique one off furniture or bespoke handmade crystal lamps to beautiful sculpture."It is only a small place with pictures on all the walls and in the window. You can see from the website what sort of artists they have on show there. There is a nice variety of styles and all the artists are friends of the owners. It is certainly a long way from most of the other galleries in Brighton, looking as it does, more like an open house.
