A BRAND new music festival brings the freshest beats from Eastbourne to Blackberry Farm, Whitesmith for one day only on August 18.

The line-up boasts a wealth of local talent with some of the edgiest up and coming bands on show during the day, before the evening session showcases a mix of house and electro vibes.

The festival kicks off at midday and finishes at midnight, with a range of indie/folk music featuring during the afternoon.

Headline acts include Early Ghost, fresh from their Hop Farm Music Festival debut and Let’s Talk Daggers.

Cobbfest 2012 has been organised by David Cobb, 19, who lives in Old Town, Eastbourne, who wanted to showcase local bands at a local venue.

David, a student at UWE, Bristol, said, “I wanted to try and organise a music event which combines all aspects of music and has a really uplifting atmosphere.

“We’ve got bands of all genres to make this happen. We’ve chosen a venue that we believe works well so we’re hoping to see as many people on the night as possible.”

The event is for over 16s and tickets are available for £20, which covers admission and camping, for those who wish to party through the night.
