We partied hard over the weekend of the 4th to the 6th of August and Margate hosted over 100 DJ’s across 10 venues and featured live performances from an all-star international line up including; ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, Gwen Dickey of ROSE ROYCE, MARC EVANS, TREVOR NELSON and PAUL TROUBLE ANDERSON to name only a few.

If that wasn’t enough it continued with the most flamboyant Carnival yet on Sunday afternoon and we had Jazz funk legends THE BLACKBYRDS, Latin Soul & Salsa stalwarts JOE BATAAN, GERARDO FRISINA, MF ROBOTS formed by JAN KINCAID founder of the Brit Jazz & Funk band BRAND NEW HEAVIES, TOM GLIDE and DIVAS GOT SOUL with guest vocalists SEL, CHIDI & HIL ST SOUL and singer songwriter GREG BLACKMAN to provide Sunday’s soundtrack.

“The festival has gone from strength to strength and continues to grow. Our festival partner Mi-Soul Radio, broadcasting on DAB, online and through mobile APP, has been a welcome voice projecting a consistently positive image of our town and we simply can’t wait for MSFest2018.” states Eli Thompson, the festival founder.
