Margate Soul Festival 2020

Organisers' update:

Like so many others, we have been hoping, waiting and watching the Coronavirus situation. Following recent official updates, we have decided to reschedule MSF 2020 to the new date of 6th, 7th & 8th August 2021.

All our artists and DJs have agreed to play for us next year, and we will now focus our energies into making 2021 extra special. All tickets purchased for 2020 will automatically roll over to 2021.

The safety of our Festival Goers, artists and DJs, and our own staff surpasses everything.

Please see Official website for further details regarding Tickets & Refunds
