Lyme Regis Guitars On The Beach

Lyme Regis Guitars On The Beach

Saturday June 27th 2020

Guitars On The Beach 2020 will be held on Saturday June 27th, the same day as Paul McCartney headlines Glastonbury. So if you’ve not got a ticket for a tent at Worthy Farm, come down to Lyme Regis beach instead – where you’ll find more space to enjoy the sun as the music wafts over you, where you can play along to whatever they’re playing onstage and where it’s absolutely free.

This year we’ll be incorporating a new [relatively speaking] section encouraging parents to play along with their children, plus a little bit of Country. But the usual GOTB rock will be intact, with great bands playing from 10 am to 10 pm and, of course, the much-anticipated play along set which is the highlight of the event. This year we’re sharing the day with Lyme hosting the UK Morris Dancing Festival, which will add to the fun. Details of which songs will feature in the sand band’s set will follow shortly.
