Back for the eighth year, At the Edge of the sea took place a week earlier than usual this year, providing the customarily eclectic mix of music with a backdrop of Brighton Beach.

It doesn’t seem five years ago that I documented my first Wedding Present mini festival at Concorde 2 in Brighton, but then it also doesnt seem two days ago that I was getting ready to shoot this years eclectic musical extravaganza, courtesy of David Gedge of The Wedding Present. Nevertheless, we are now at the end of an unforgettable weekend of fantastic music and all that is left is to share the photos.

Once again, August Bank holiday in Brighton brought the sunshine and the crowds, and the London to Brighton Scooter run…oh, it also brought At the Edge of the Sea – the fantastic mini-festival curated by David Gedge and the Wedding Present – back to Concorde 2 for it’s fifth year. The format this year was shaken up a little and instead of a sister festival up north, as has been the case in the previous two years (At the Edge of the Peaks, previously held in Holmfirth), the Brighton festival became a two-day event.
Saturday featured Tensheds, Cinerama, The Missing Season, The Fireworks, Marlin, Flying Wing, Dog in the Snow, The Twilight Sad and the Wedding Present.
Sunday featured Monster Bobby, Cinerama, Sivu, No Middle name, Terry de Castro, The Flatmates, Pete Fij & Terry Bickers, Miles Hunt and Erica Nockells of the Wonderstuff and The Wedding Present.

Bank Holiday weekend is a busy part of the calendar for a number of reasons. For some of us, it’s because the Wedding Present host their annual mini-festival At the Edge of the Sea at Concorde 2 in Brighton. I was the official photographer for the event once again this year, follow the link for the photos from the bands and some backstage shots too.
