The not-for-profit Southsea Fest features over a hundred up and coming bands and DJ's, the event looks to establish itself as a leading new music showcase for the south coast.
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.
