Electric Dreams Weekender Butlins Resort, Upper Bognor Rd, Bognor Regis PO21 1JJ Friday 29th November – Monday 2nd December 2019 When I went to The Great British Alternative Music Festival, at Butlins Skegness in 2018 I expected it to be just another festival, but it turned out to be rather special – with superb sound and lighting, great vibe, friendly helpful staff, plus comfy beds and hot sit-down meals, it was so good that I went to the one in Minehead earlier this year and will hopefully be returning to Skegness in October. It got me thinking about other...
