Ramsgate Rising brings a full day of music with MAP, Pie Factory Music and Generation Uncovered presenting a supercharged lineup of original sounds from a top flight of independent artists, breaking through right now into the popular music scene, supported by a showcase of a new wave of the freshest young entertainers Ramsgate’s Music Scene has to offer.

The World Rhythms Stage on Sunday provides world music and dance vibes all day on Sunday while the Slide is taking place.

The Hand Made and Vintage Festival Fair in Pier Yard will be full of Treasure for you to discover all weekend – vintage and handmade finds and artisan food and drinks.

On Sunday evening we have the Dream Marine Twilight Parade  followed by the spectacular Fire Finale, kindly sponsored by JD Wetherspoon Royal Pavilion which will be opening next month in the harbour.
