ABOUT GUITARS ON THE BEACH 2019
Guitars On The Beach is the UK’s largest guitar festival at which hundreds of guitarists of all ages and abilities come together to simultaneously play together a selection of well-known songs and form Britain’s biggest band, performing on the beach in Lyme Regis in Dorset.
For 2019, the event, at which bands will perform from 10 am to 10 pm, will be held on June 15th, and for the highlight of the day we’ll be going back to the Sixties to make it much more of a beach dance party. The main play-along song will be the 1964 Cliff Richard hit “ON THE BEACH”. “It’s such an obvious song for such a fun day that it has only taken us seven years to realise it”
More news coming soon. For updates please also see our Facebook page.
The sand band – who play along to the songs performed by a house band of local musicians performing on a stage on the beach, like playing along to a record – will also be invited to play along to the house band set, as is done every year. Join in on Buddy Holly’s “Rave On” [GOTB’s signature song], which this year marks its the 60th anniversary of his death.
