Established in 2007 as the Southsea Mini Music Fest, the one day charity event sold out its 350 capacity, held in aid of promoter Josie Curtis' younger brother to record an album, post a bone marrow transplant. Since then a number of small events have led the way for the nautical-themed festival to develop, with all profits from the day still going directly to charity.
This year the event celebrates its 10th year anniversary, as an expanded 6,000 capacity event across multiple venues in Southsea & Portsmouth. For the first time the Pyramids venue will be programmed during the one day event, which includes over 20 live music spaces, all accessed with one wristband - while a brand new shuttle bus service will ferry people across the town.
