A shore thing

The ATP weekenders may be no more, but there are clearly some people who still (rightly) believe in the concept. Somehow the existence of Rockaway Beach, taking place at Butlins in Bognor Regis next weekend, had completely bypassed me but - aside from one or two to-be-avoided acts (Suede and St Etienne) - the line-up is pretty decent, featuring Killing Joke, Wire, The Wedding Present, Cats Eyes, Clinic, Yuck, Blanck Mass, Black Honey, Membranes, FEWS and Jane Weaver.

This is actually the second event, following up a successful debut last year. On the strength of the idea and the bill, here's hoping that it becomes a fixture and that one day I might be able to afford to go to a proper festival again...
