Back Together Again: The Cause present Seaside Beano at Pontins, Camber Sands

For anyone who missed out on The Great Escape and is in need of a dose of dancing and new music by the sea, head to Camber Sands, 20th – 23rd May.

Community hub The Cause has served as one of London’s most important spaces over the past years, providing a home for underground music fans, parties and creative groups since its opening. Currently displaced, The Cause are still on the search for a permanent home, but that isn’t stopping them from getting everyone together again for a good old knees up, which is where Seaside Beano comes in.

For the first ever Seaside Beano, there’s a heavy line up of club favourites and live acts. Helena Hauff, Objekt, Cera Khin, Asquith, Pangaea, Object Blue b2b TVSI, Chippy Non Stop, Ivan Smagghe b2b Sean Johnston, Danielle, Crossbreed’s Kiwi, Tasha, Kiara Scuro, Toshiki Ohta, Angel D’Lite all play alongside The Cause residents Jerome Hill, Amaliah, Silverlining, Marcia Carr, Reeshy, Pierre Codarin, Running Hot and loyal crews Late Night Shopper, Earful of Wax, Feelings Worldwide, Bubble Chamber, Polar, Spacehopper, Ritmo, Fast & Bi-Furious, & more.

Across the weekend expect several very special live shows from one of the UK’s hottest dance acts right now Overmono, Detroit techno originals Octave One and The Cause residents Paranoid London. The Cause Seaside Beano will take inspiration from 80’s-tastic Pontins – providing the perfect backdrop to a mischievous weekender. The Seaside Beano kicks off at midday on Friday 20th May, with 24 hours of music, right through until 6am on Monday 23rd May.

It’s a new chapter for the team behind The Cause and its gang of party people. Whilst they search for a new home, the revered London club takes a new form with this festival, partnering with several of its key promoters to bring you the ultimate rave-led British holiday. The Cause invite a host of artists, residents and parties to provide the backdrop for their first outing – cult queer party Adonis will be hosting a three-day takeover of the second biggest space, featuring some of Berlin’s hottest talent. DrRubinstein, Paramida, Sedef Adasi, Tama Sumo b2b Lakuti, Roi Perez, Massimiliano Pagliara, Radiant Love’s Byron Yeates & Cáit, Or:la and residents Gideon, Shay, Hannah Holland, Michelle Manetti, Marie Malarie have all been confirmed so far.

The venue will be transformed into an all-out rave cave with multiple dance floors, such as the arcade centre, a 24-hour on-site boozer, the laser zone, secret rooms and pool parties each day. On-site, expect amusement arcades, go-karts, crazy golf, pool halls, an urban gym, and a huge pool with an aqua course which will host several pool parties each day. In the local area find watersports, boat trips, kitesurfing, bike hire, nature reserves, village pubs, restaurants, and beach bars. Performances for the weekend are hosted by Adonis’s cheeky sister ‘Touche’ and Jonny Woo’s legendary East London pub The Glory. Expect cabaret, drag queens and plenty of fun, fun, fun in the sun!

Eugene Wild, The Cause co-founder says: “With the over-commercialisation of festivals of recent years, we have taken a real back to basics site and will be turning it into another labyrinth rave maze, akin to our original club and bringing some ace talent and all our family and friends that have supported us over the years for a three day marathon party.”
