Controlling the visual aspect of the event will be Flat-e (www.flat-e.com), Quixote (www.teamquixote.co.uk), HFR-Lab (www.hfr-lab.com) and Stanzcrew (www.stanzacrew.com). These guys will be transforming Pontins from a peculiar 1950's holiday centre into a modern day mecca of eyeball joy.

The self contained chalet accommodation has access to all the music showcases, indoor swimming pool and other park activities inc. go-karts, retro games arcade, skate ramp and even a commando style zip line. Each chalet is self-catering and has a kitchen with cooking/dining utensils included, bathroom with a shower sink & toilet. The TV/Lounge area doubles as a bedroom with a roll out sofa bed, and then there will either be one or two bedrooms with the relevant numbers of beds. Tickets must be bought according to available chalet size in groups ranging from 4 – 8 people. For smaller groups visit www.dedbeat.net and go to the chat forum to arrange a chalet share.

Dedbeat Coach £25 return. If you are coming from or via London you can get one of our coaches that are going to depart from London Liverpool St on the morning/early afternoon of the 23rd of April. These are cheaper than the train and direct to the venue so will save you travel grief. They will return late Sunday and early Monday morning depending on demand.
