T4 On The Beach will be back - bigger than ever
PUBLISHED: 08:00 20 January 2011
T4 ON The Beach looks set to return to town on one of two possible dates in July.
The Mercury exclusively revealed last week how the summer bash is set to take to Weston’s sands once again in 2011.
Great Yarmouth, which hosted the event the first time in 2004 when it was called Pop Beach, wanted to entice the growing event back, but Weston proved to be the most popular choice for the sixth year running.
The organisers behind T4 On The Beach are keeping tight-lipped about dates, but the Mercury understands party-goers will be looking at July 3 or 10 for the star-studded show.
North Somerset Council and organisers behind the Channel 4 event, which attracts hundreds of thousands of party-goers to the town, are currently in negotiations over the best date for the summer spectacular and tide times are good on both dates.
Last July the likes of JLS, Dizzee Rascal, Alexandra Burke, Diana Vickers, Tinie Tempah, N-Dubz, the Saturdays and Tinchy Stryder took to the stage at the pop-fuelled event and fans will anxiously await news of this year’s line-up.
About 50,000 turned out for the 2010 bash, a record-breaking number for T4 On The Beach.
The Mercury was the first North Somerset paper to start an online petition in 2009 to bring T4 On The Beach back to Weston.
The show, staged on our town’s sands over the years, features around 25 top names each time and the event gets more popular each year.
