Beach Break live 2012.... The ultimate summer festival.
Where do you start? Well as with all great stories, when talking about Beach Break Live you start at the beginning:
I'd driven past signposts of words increasing in length and decreasing in vowels until I saw Llanelli 2 miles. I'd arrived at last years Beach Break, everywhere I looked were students struggling to drink a beer while carrying four crates, a tent, and a spare pair of underwear. I took a deep breathe of fresh welsh air, because I knew things were about to get crazy......
THE UK'S ANSWER TO THE USA 'SPRING BREAK'!
What does my ticket include?... 3000 party people, 4 days and 4 nights of epic end of year parties, crazy beach games, beach raves and BBQ’s. Exclusive accommodation in the Student Village, access to all the SB clubs, fancy dress shenanigans and world famous DJs every night - the perfect blowout to the end the student year!
Tell me more... Summer Break is the ultimate post-exam blowout for university students. Europe’s largest fully organised holiday is set in the UK’s most famous party mecca: Newquay!
The resort facilities... Luxury caravans // Outdoor swimming pool // 2 Bars // Huge Nightclub // Village Store // Cafes & Restaurant // Bonfires // Private Beach// Outdoor Stage // Caravan Hopping! Whether you are in a hall of residence, a sports team or you are a group of mates, we know Summer Break is THE REASON YOU BECAME A STUDENT!
How do I get there?... Transport is available from all UK Campuses to the beautiful Cornish coast
(Just £50 Deposit)
Quite simply put…..this will be THE best holiday you will ever go on! A bold statement but we are absolutely certain we can fulfil it. One invader from our Ibiza Invasion in 2011 said “I’m not looking forward to going on holiday with my friends next week now because I know it won’t be anywhere near as good as the Ibiza Invasion” and this is how we pride ourselves on this event. Deposits for 2012 are now open and so if you want to come and have one of the best times of your life, meet a tonne of like minded people and come back to blighty with a tan, then put that deposit down (before this event sells out)!
OMFGosh, trust me, this ones gonna be off the chain!
The lovely people from Outgoing.co.uk who brought us Pendulum, Chase and Status, Tinnie Tempah and Professor Green in 2011 have decided once again to tickle us with a line up to make your eyes water. On the beautifully scenic ski slopes of Mayrhofen, Snowbombing is bringing the biggest names in the world once again. If you were unfortunate enough to miss DJ Shadow at most major festivals in 2011 then this is a opportunity written in the stars to amend your wrong doings of last year. Furthermore the 'Hospital Records' A-Team is coming down this is an event, bringing Camo and Krooked, High Contrast, London Elektricity and many more, if these names don't ring a bell then you'll need to get your tickets for the Hospitality Leeds Tour on the 3rd February this year.
But hey, I'm going on and on about the music here, so sure this is some of the best music in the world, but apart from that, what is so special about SnowBombing? SnowBombing brings you to one brilliant skiing location, whether you snowboard or ski the Mayrhofen will provide you with fantastic snow. At 3250m above sea level it is above the snowline so skiing and snowboarding is available all year round here. Mayhofen itself has 146km of pisted slopes and is considered one of the top resorts in Austria.
Do I need to say anymore?
Well, maybe, but that will all come in due course so for now I will leave you with that short snippet of what is to come at SnowBombing and let you quietly drool over the line-up above. If you want any more info NOW then I can't blame you, it's a festival that I will never miss and once you have been, that week will be scraped out of every calender for the rest of your days!
So head over to http://bit.ly/snowbombing and start getting excited!!
For those of you who want a bit more out your 14 of February then get yourself down to Kiss da Funk Valentines Ball. This event promises to tare the roof off once again as some of the best in the business go head to head to bring you the most banging electro house tunes available today at none other than the infamous Mint Club in Leeds. It is sure to get you in the mood for love as they will be celebrating all things valentines.
