Get the Lovebug! All-day music festival heading to Chichester College hits all the right notes!


Lovebug comes to Chichester College! An exciting, new all-day music festival featuring ska, roots reggae, dub, soul, funk, acid jazz, northern soul, rare groove and modern soul hosted at the Chichester College’s Pavilion Bar on 18th August from 3pm until midnight.

Music on the day will be played by veteran vinyl DJs Mark Howard (Ska-Beat-Soul) with special guests Eddie Stenner and Jamie McGreal. (London Soul Cruise/Back Together Again) throughout the day and well into the night.

Ramping up the afternoon live music from band Birdsworth. These guys put on an super hip northern soul performance and the advice is: “Get in early – don’t miss out on seeing these guys!” Headlining the event later in the evening will be the sensational ska/indie band Levi — the originators of Skindie —  billed as “simply live music at its very best, a must-see”.

The main events to be held in the large Pavilion Bar garden with chill-out areas at the front of the venue. A Caribbean BBQ and plenty of ice cold Red Stripes available to keep the vibes flowing throughout the day. A secondary indoor bar is in the main Pavilion serving up plenty of other delights.
