Entry to Contra Pop 2016 is free of charge, but please register online at Eventbrite (by clicking on the ticket link below) as capacity is limited.

Ticket Link

Like last year, we are accepting your generous donations (at the same ticket link above) to help with the running of the festival.
We are covering Eventbrite's and Paypal's processing fees for this, so whatever amount you kindly pledge will also be your grand total (i.e. no added charges). Thanks so much to everyone who contributed last year.

Look forward to seeing you on the beach.


Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I bring my children to Contra Pop?
A: Children are very welcome and there's no need to reserve them a ticket. The event will have something of a 'PG' rating. We would recommend that children (especially toddlers) remain with a parent or guardian outside the event marquee as the sound frequencies produced by the PA system may be damaging to young ears. We anticipate that the marquee will become more adult-friendly than child-friendly as night falls, but, again, this is open for interpretation by parents.

Q: Can I bring my dog to Contra Pop?
A: Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed on Ramsgate Main Sands at this time of year.


As a Contra Pop ticket-holder, there's a fair chance you're a musician or producer yourself. If this is the case, please feel free to drop in at the fantastic Arco Barco Studio, an official partner of Contra Pop 2016. The studio is located behind the festival site in the arches at 29 Military Road, and staff will be happy to show you around on an appointment-only basis over the weekend.
