AN ELECTRONIC music festival will hit Weston’s beach this summer - the only UK leg of the big-name event’s 
worldwide tour, after the sands were named an ‘iconic’ location.

Big names such as Disclosure and Annie Mac will be performing on the seafront in the town’s third summer show this year, called Corona SunSets, before the stars jet off for four other legs of the tour in Mexico, Canada and Spain.

The festival, which was launched by SFX Entertainment through a 
partnership with Corona and Beatport, will include three different stages – and one will be headlined by popular music festival organisers Bestival.

Rob Loader, organiser of Corona SunSets, said: “The iconic location of Weston beach is perfect for the first of these worldwide parties.

“Weston also has a great history of music events on the beach, and it’s a great chance to add electronic music to that legacy.

“The region is steeped with great heritage for both electronic music and a legendary festival culture.”

Corona SunSets, which will be on the beach on July 5, will follow two other major concerts – the McBusted show 
on June 28 and The South West Live show the next day, organised by AEG Live.

The town will be treated to 
performances from pop bands such as Busted, The Backstreet Boys and Mcfly in the first concert, then another popular crowd including The Saturdays, Jessie J and Jason Derulo will step on stage in South West Live.

Other big names in the electronic music field such as Sinden, Rob Da Bank, Eats Everything and Kidnap Kid have already been confirmed for Corona SunSets, with more to be released 
soon.

Gates will open at noon and the show will run until 11pm. Entrants must be 18 or over and early bird tickets are now available via www.coronasunsets.com
