Starting 2025 Rockaway Beach 👊We're thrilled to announce the first wave of Rockaway Beach 2025 artists, including Leftfield, RIDE, and Spiritualized. Tickets are available from bit.ly/Rockaway25

We wanted to bring somebody back who played for us in the first year, as a way to celebrate ten years of the festival. Spiritualized have released two albums in that time, including the sublime ‘Everything Was Beautiful’ in 2022 and the timing felt perfect.

For 2025 we will be taking advantage of a new live space at the Butlin’s Bognor Regis site, called Studio 36. Headliners will appear in this new venue boasting a state of the art sound and visual experience for you guys. Despite this upgrade though, capacity of the festival will remain the same.

The added visuals will emphasise artists like Saturday night headliners Leftfield. With the positive changes we’re making to improve the festival’s experience, without increasing capacity, it made sense to have a band who would meet the occasion. Their performances are renowned for their intensity and precision, showcasing why they were so influential in shaping modern electronic music. It will undoubtedly be one of the most distinctive moments in Rockaway history.

RIDE finalise the tryptic of headliners for 2025. Pioneers of the shoegaze genre, RIDE have consistently pushed the boundaries of alternative rock with their distinctive blend of reverb-drenched guitars and introspective lyrics. Their live shows are a testament to their enduring legacy and continued relevance in the music world. RIDE released their “triumphant” (Mojo) album ‘Interplay’ this March, which scored huge praise for its “confidence and sensibility that suggests its creators know this might just be the finest collection of songs they’ve released since their debut, Nowhere, back in 1990.” (Under The Radar)

Also included in the first wave of acts are Arab Strap, BODEGA, Georgia UK, Liz Lawrence, Pete Wylie and The Mighty Wah!, Ruts DC, Sprints, as well as ARXX, Bloodworm, The Dirt, Ebbb, The Itch, The Jonny Halifax Invocation, Lime Garden, Man/Woman/Chainsaw, Meryl Streek, Miki Berenyi Trio, and THE NONE.

BBC 6music DJ: Chris Hawkins will be back again spinning discs for the late night dancers and holding in depth conversations with the artists.

Outside of live music, we pride ourselves on having a full programme across the weekend on various stages at Butlin’s, Bognor Regis. Once more there will be Q&As with artists, guest DJs, record signings, bingo, a record fair, late-night takeovers, silent discos, and pub quizzes, plus the various attractions of the Butlin’s site itself… all included in your weekend ticket alongside accommodation.

All tickets are booked via Butlin’s, and include three nights accommodation and access to Rockaway Beach - available now from just £90pp all-in. Room rates are based on occupancy, meaning that couples or groups of friends booking into shared accommodation will be cheaper than solo bookers. Room options range from multiple bedroom apartments, and chalets, to various hotel rooms.

Thanks for the last ten years, and here's to ten more. See you in January.

Come back to London you muppets! I’m not going to cough up to see a load of other bands I don’t like in a field ! The gig in Tufnell Park end of 2023 was one of the best I have ever been to and has had me listening to Rhythm and Stealth every single day since . An album I forgot for about 20 years . So sort your lives out and book the O2, b1tches!!

Your first CD.. What's the languages the songs are sung in?

Love...
