BangFace is already ringing in the changes for 2012. The annual Weekender is being moved several months later in the year to 14-16 September and is relocating some 300 miles west from its original home in Camber, East Sussex, to Newquay in beautiful Cornwall.
BF supremo James said: “We’re moving to the beautiful Cornish coastline to a site that allows us to offer much more of a holiday Weekender vibe. I looked at several sites, including three in Europe.
“This one has the most potential, the site is set in a lush green valley so with the individual caravans plus camping now allowed it’s going to have a real Weekender / Festival hybrid feel which is really exciting! Proper Bang Face holiday vibes, Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places in the UK anyway.”
He also announced that there would be a beach party and the pool party would be held outdoors in the warmer weather too.
Accommodation will be in caravans or – for the first time – camping in tents for those who don’t wish to share a caravan or prefer the more traditional festival experience. Tickets are available from eBang from today at 7pm.
