On Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August 2016, Extra Normal Records presents the second annual Contra Pop Festival, a two-day event encompassing live performances from some of the foremost artists working at the intersection between popular music and the avant-garde. This diverse congregation of musicians epitomises a vibrant European scene far from the clutches of the corporate opportunists who threaten to homogenise pop culture.

Contra Pop 2016 will boast a purpose-built stage and sound system located on the sandy beach of the historic town of Ramsgate in Kent.
Yay! day trip in the van to Contrapop – a fantastic bijou festival on the sandy beaches of Ramsgate (a novelty for Brightonians as we have pebbles).
After looking around the town and harbour, sampling chips and beers we saw a brilliant set by Silver Apples, amazing energy and beats and Adrian Sherwood feat. Ghetto Priest MC,  the tent was grooving by then, with the local ales going down very well.
We got back to B’ton about 1am but it was well worth it.

Thank you Extra Normal Records
