Wheels and Fins Festival takeover by Hospitality Records

First there were The Libertines - now this year's Wheels and Fins Festival will see a takeover by pioneering drum 'n' bass label Hospitality Records.

The festival, which will be held in Joss Bay, Broadstairs on Saturday, September 8, and Sunday, September 9, will be the seventh edition of the event which sees revellers dance, camp and sunbathe by the sea.

Some 10,000 revellers are expected to turn out for the mix of sports, outdoor activities and music acts over three stages.
