On Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August 2016, Extra Normal Records presents the second annual Contra Pop Festival, a two-day event encompassing live performances from some of the foremost artists working at the intersection between popular music and the avant-garde. This diverse congregation of musicians epitomises a vibrant European scene far from the clutches of the corporate opportunists who threaten to homogenise pop culture. Contra Pop 2016 will boast a purpose-built stage and sound system located on the sandy beach of the historic town of Ramsgate in Kent.
With entry free of charge, local and international beers available on the premises and a variety of cafés and restaurants only a stone’s throw away, Contra Pop 2016 is another rare opportunity to absorb the cutting edge of the musical underground in a quintessential seaside setting.
