Lets get Together The People of Brighton! WIN festival tickets

Together The People Brighton Festival

With the world feeling like it’s turning upside down at the moment, surrounded by unrest and total chaos, it’s a time to get together people.

Let’s try and focus of all that’s great about life, our friends, our family, our freedom to PARTY!

Let’s get Together The People of Brighton!

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for summer. I want to lay on the grass and listen to tunes with a cider in my hand. I’m super excited about the second instalment of Brighton’s newest family festival Together The People, right on our doorstep in Preston Park this September.

Held over the last weekend of the school holidays (3rd & 4th September), Together The People is the perfect way to end summer with a bang. We all had a great time last year and saw some fantastic world-class music and top kids’ theatre.

This year headline acts include a UK festival exclusive from Brian Wilson performing Pet Sounds in its entirety for the record’s 50th anniversary & re-release.  Brit-pop 90’s legends Suede, The Horrors, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats plus many more.

I’m most looking forward to Peter Hook & The Light performing Joy Division / New Order Greatest Hits and also the totally awesome Songhoy Blues AND Turin Brakes.


2015-09-06 14.13.25Last year the kids really enjoyed the great Cat In The Hat stage show and I’m pleased to hear that this year’s children’s theatre headliners are moving to an open air stage as it was somewhat of a squeeze with all the small people at the festival. I’m also delighted to hear that the lovely team from Child Friendly Brighton and several other local organisations will be adding even more for children to do this year. Plus the strange ‘no readmission’ policy that the council inflicted on families has now been lifted so it’s easier to juggle kids and get an evening off.

As well as the three stages of music, Together The People features the Incredible Moving Picturehouse Cinema, The Soapbox stage hosting a selection of talks, debates, poetry, spoken word, photography exhibitions and acoustic performances from local contributors and beyond.

We enjoyed a delicious range of top quality street food from some of Brighton best independent traders at the first Together The People. This year there are even more choices on offer including meals especially for kids. There will also be roaming street performers, bubble shows, a fun fair, art activities, and even a free family friendly photography workshop to keep little ones busy.

Together The People is an independent festival celebrating music, food, community, film and arts and delivering a high quality, creative, family friendly and socially aware event. In 2015 the festival was powered by bio-diesel & solar technology, recycled over 5.3 tonnes of waste and generated over £2,000 in public donations for local homeless charity ‘Brighton Housing Trust’.

    i’d love to take my son to see brian wilson playing ‘pet sounds’, one of my very favourite albums. he listens to rubbish at the mo (he’s 17). i tried to educate him in musical taste but failed. i think this might just work!

    I would love to go to this to see Brian Wilson in my favourite city in the UK.

    The album Pet Sounds was life changing getting me through a tough time when I discovered it

    Then to top it off, it is my favourite band Suede playing the Sunday night

    I can’t think of anything more perfect than sharing these moments with my family

    I was made redunant by a large corporation and we pulled together to get through it so this celebration would be ideal

    Even though I’m a mummy now I can enjoy music I listen too with the family.. I’ve even perSUEDEd my husband to go !

    I have always wanted to visit Brighton but have never got around to it because it seems so far away from Birmingham. I also think that winning the tickets would force my hand and would mean that I’d finally make the effort to go there. I would add a day or two on to my time in the area so that I could be at the festival and then take a look around the centre of Brighton. I’d like to see the things people tell me about the place. Oh, and I’m festival mad so going to a new one would be a great experience.

    I’d love to see Brian Wilson. He’s up there in the pantheon with Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger…..

  6. 9 jo shrew June 26, 2016 at 16:23

  7. 10 charlie pope June 27, 2016 at 21:09

  8. 11 Sharon Williams June 27, 2016 at 21:10

    My husband loves Brian Wilson and my daughters love lazy town and aliens. Me well I love just soaking up the atmosphere. This is right on my doorstep and family friendly. Perfect for us all to enjoy.

    Me in the moshpit with my 4year son on my shoulders singing away to Joy Divisions ‘Love will tear us apart’ . Now that would be surrreal.

    Would love the chance to take my family especially my elderly father who is the biggest beach boys and Brian Wilson fan off all time

  11. 17 Lizzy T July 8, 2016 at 13:15

    Pet Sounds is brilliant!

  12. 18 Sarah July 8, 2016 at 18:03

    Hi I’m looking for a family friendly festival we haven’t attempted one yet and with this one so close to home it would be perfect to get us back into festival life post baby !

  13. 19 Maddie Sinclair July 16, 2016 at 21:37

    It’s gotta be Suede & Hooky for me. Love a bit of 90s/Britpop.

  14. 20 Andrea July 18, 2016 at 17:37

    Hiatus Kaiyote! ❤

  15. 21 Jenny T July 18, 2016 at 20:09

    This looks like the ideal opportunity to take my 6 year old to her first festival. In fact, Suede played my first festival back in 1996 and I discovered Brian Wilson at a festival too so it’s kinda’ perfect!

  16. 22 Petra Hora July 19, 2016 at 07:25

    I would take my sister in law visiting us from Australia.

  17. 23 Anaïs July 19, 2016 at 10:46

    Brian Wilson and Suede playing at a festival which is a 5min walk away from home, can’t miss that! Loved Super Furry Animals last year and a friend of mine came especially from France to see Brakes!

  18. 24 kim wallace July 19, 2016 at 14:48

    my son and i Kyran would love to go to this and its not to far away from us in Coulsdon

  19. 25 James F July 19, 2016 at 15:15

    M. Ward. A monster of folk.

  20. 26 Danielle Boulton July 19, 2016 at 21:20

    I saw Brian Wilsons autobiographical film – Love and Mercy and this really made me love Pet Sounds xxx

  21. 27 Clare Moloney July 19, 2016 at 21:56

  22. 28 Adrian Bold July 21, 2016 at 00:22

    Looks like a great day, plenty of people I’d like to see.

  23. 29 cara-jane Hunter July 21, 2016 at 08:47

    Did you say Suede are playing? They are the best live band i’ve ever seen!!!!!

  24. 30 Ashobi Finni July 21, 2016 at 18:18

    It looks like a great fun festival with a positive message… I’d love to be part of it. Plus it would be my first time in Brighton!
