Harking back to the 80’s and 90’s when the Radio One Roadshows came to Skegness, a Beach Fest is bringing live music to the beach later this month.

Skegness Beach Fest has joined forces with The Hive for a weekend jam packed of beach sports and live music.

The exciting new collaboration will see The Hive host a selection of the finest tribute acts from across Europe for two evenings of live entertainment on the sands on Friday may 31 and Saturday June 1.
