The first day of a Beach Fest in Skegness featuring some of the finest tribute acts from across Europe is being moved into The Hive.

Organisers told Lincolnshire World they have been forced to dismantle the stage near the Pier due to winds gusting at around 40mph.

This has come as a massive disappointment to The Hive after months of planning the three-day event in partnership with Beach Fest UK.

The music festival was set to rock the resort from 2pm today (Friday).

Craig Cresswel, Events Manager at The Hive, commented: “We are really diappointed we have not been able to start as planned but we are continuing with the festival in the Waredhouse at The Hive for those who still want to see the bands.

“We are hoping we can carry on as planned on the beach for the rest of the weekend.

"The Skegness event has been gaining tremendous momentum over the past few years and with the added music festival for 2024 we know the event can grow to the level of the Radio One Roadshow previously held in Skegness.”
