Beach Break Live is so much more than a music festival, programming over 500 performances across 13 venues from 10am-4am. No festival goer will ever suffer from boredom from the moment they arrive on site to the moment they pack up their tent, whether they’re flexing their sporting prowess or soaking up the rays on the beach! Revellers will have the chance to experience burlesque to beat box, woodland theatre to world food, all within the stunning Pembrey Country Park in South Wales.
Adventure knows no bounds at the Student Extreme Games where athletes from 50 different universities compete against each other in extreme sports including kite surfing, wake boarding, skiing and snowboarding for the chance to be crowned the Student Extreme Games Champion as well as winning top prizes donated by sponsors. Beach Break ship in a multi-hit, multi-line run that both freestyle skiers and snowboarders can rip into throughout the festival, plus a huge Pool Gap is being built amid the Welsh sands and professional demos and teams from across the country will be offering guidance and throwing down some serious moves across the weekend. As one of the only festivals in the country to offer such a substantial sporting programme, Beach Break Live attracts thousands of watersports and snow enthusiasts every year, providing not only some great opportunities to participate but also some awesome viewing.
One sports showcase is not enough for Beach Break Live in the Olympic year. The festival team are working with BBL staples Bearded Kitten to programme the rather more tongue-in-cheek Celtic Games. Causing havoc is the name of this Olympic-themed game as festival goers are invited to get involved in everything from human curling and blind folded long jump to the more serious cheese rolling… With all this sport and activity taking place, it's no wonder that Beach Break Live's theme for 2012 is 'VIVA LA GAMES', a true homage to the Olympics and all the encouragement that the revellers will need to arrive in togas, spandex and any other sporting clobber at their disposal.
Basking in Britain's games glory is very much the order of Beach Break Live this year. No festival goer will go untouched from the frenzy of what is set to be a menagerie of mayhem with an Olympic twist. Set on eight miles of award winning, Welsh beach with a woodland backdrop the festival has it all. Global superstars from Dizzee Rascal to Friendly Fires will grace the stages as contortionists and teams of parkour artists roam the grounds ensuring every festival goer has a truly magical and unique four days.
