We’ll just be asking for donations to the Antibes Lifeboat.

All Wristbands are available to purchase for just 5€ (kids under 12 free), this gives you access from mid day to midnight! Guest wristbands are provided by Liquid Yacht Wear, you can either purchase them from Bluewater (from 23rd May) or arrive early and get them at the entrance.

A day of fun, followed by an evening to party!

Who’s Thirsty?

Onshore Cellars will have a bar serving a selection of their fantastic wines
There will be an Aperol Spritz bar by James

As the afternoon draws on, the live bands will take to the stage, including BLAH BLAH, and you’ll be entertained by the Kiss cover group COLD GIN.

So much happening, for everyone, of all ages. We look forward to welcoming you!

The rain seems to be following us, so pull on your wellies, bring a brolly, grab a pint, and lets sing in the rain!

Team Naughty and Nice

Team Naughty, at the Naughty + Nice juice bar, will be selling their organic juices and shots to keep your festival self in balance.

Who’s hungry?

The Siam will be selling authentic thai food, Pura Vida with their guilt-free buddha bowls, Made with Love truck offering various snacks including chicken nuggets, and Will’s Food bar will be selling ribs and skewers. Mother Trucker will be joining late afternoon with their fantastic burgers.
Something for everyone!

Naughty and Nice juices founded in the middle of a Pacific Ocean crossing. This is no ordinary organic juice. After a few seasons of sailing in the Caribbean, Team Naughty realised there wasn’t enough “nice” ingredients in beach bar cocktails. Too much sugar and junky syrups and not enough cold pressed natural goodness.
So, after returning to dry land on the Côte d’Azur, a new organic juice company was born.
Naughty + Nice organic juices and shots are all specially formulated to work as cocktail mixers and detox juices for the day after. But since the combinations are so tasty and nutritious, kids love them too. In fact all 4 juice combos are kid tested and approved.
Their signature detox shot “The Fire Baby” has been likened to natural viagra, so be careful out there guys 😜
