At The Edge Of The Sea

'At The Edge Of The Sea' is an indoor mini-festival curated by David Gedge which takes place at the Concorde 2 venue in Brighton, England, every August. Both of David's own groups [Cinerama and The Wedding Present] appear each year. See below for a list of all the other artists who have taken part.

AT THE EDGE OF THE SEA 2016 WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE CONCORDE 2 IN BRIGHTON ON SATURDAY 20 AUGUST BETWEEN 3PM AND 10PM.

Unfortunately, David has been unable to secure the usual bank holiday weekend slot for the event because the venue is not available on those days. After spending some time looking at alternative sites the decision was reached that Concorde 2 remains the most appropriate location for At The Edge Of The Sea. However, since a two-day festival only really works over a bank holiday weekend [and, being disinclined to moving the festival to one of the May bank holiday weekends] it was decided to restore At The Edge Of The Sea to being a one-day event for 2016. This decision was not taken lightly because we are aware that fans of the festival like to make ‘a weekend of it’.

On a more positive note we are currently looking to stage an early-finishing, low-key event during the afternoon of Sunday 21 August to replace what would have been the festival’s second day.

CONFIRMED SO FAR FOR 2016 : The Wedding Present, Cinerama, Melys & Quinta.
