Live at the Beach is back!
Live at the Beach is back again to blast the sand off Portrush’s beach.

The acts announced are The Wanted (stop screaming girls!), The Saturdays (stop wolf whistling boys!), Alexandra Burke, Fugitive, Lloyd Daniels (that cute one of the X Factor), and John Snow! Last years successful event pulled in crowds of mass proportion (20,000 to be exact!) with an eye-popping line-up of music royalty – Fatboy Slim and Chemical Brothers.
It’s quite a different take this year, much more commercial and Pop. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Well NI does lack music festivals with these types of line-ups so it’s definitely refreshing!

Live at the Beach will run from 4pm to 11pm at Portrush’s East Strand on Saturday 25 June. Tickets go on sale Sat 19th March at 9am priced at just £36.95 or limited family tickets (for up to four people) are available for £133

The brainchild of Simon Harris, owner of Hedonist Hair. Its launch was on 12th March @ Double Yellow and proved to be a lively hit!

Stunning local fashion, worn by Stunning local models, that strutted their stuff down the catwalk to the backdrop of exciting local musical talents.

Hedonist Presents Belfast Rocks took place in aid of Autism Initiative NI to raise awareness of a very worthy cause.

Fashion director Connor Kerr commented, “I can’t believe the support for an event so individual as Belfast Rocks! This event is something so new to Belfast and thankfully it has paid off!

Watch out for the next events 4fashion and Hedonist have up their sleeves.
