Winter 2015 saw the first edition of By The Sea Festival at Dreamland Margate. Conceived by Moshi Moshi records as a welcome edition to Margate’s growing reputation as a cultural gem. Hot Chip, Foals and Teleman amongst others played across the weekend and for a small part of it all i wandered the Dreamland Park performing spoken word for groups of festival goers. The idea was to trial a performance residency that used the park setting for informal performance. In Particular riding the Big Wheel at least 14 times, thats 28 revolutions, whilst performing to couples looking out over the Margate Bay at night. Special? Yes. More to come in 2016? i’ll be there with more performers in September.
