On Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th August 2018, Extra Normal Records presents the third edition of Contra Pop Festival, a two-day event encompassing live performances from some of the foremost artists working at the intersection between experimental music and pop. This diverse congregation of musicians epitomises a vibrant international scene far from the clutches of the corporate opportunists who threaten to homogenise popular culture. Contra Pop 2018 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 beers available on the premises and a variety of cafés and restaurants only a stone’s throw away, Contra Pop 2018 is a rare opportunity to absorb the cutting edge of the musical underground in a quintessential seaside setting.
