The city's rugby ground will host a series of all-day music events this summer
New from the team behind leading Brighton nightclub and live music venue The Arch comes Life In The Park, a series of outdoor music events taking place this summer at Brighton Rugby Club, in the city's Waterhall district,.
There are plenty of big house and techno names on offer, including a special 30th anniversary gig by Orbital [pictured], as well as delves into reggae, funk, disco and so on. All events have a strict 2,000 capacity to allow for social distancing measures, and all will see the rugby ground transformed with marquees, funfair rides, food stalls and all the usual festival trimming. Where they do vary is that The Arch have worked with a number of other promoters and organisations to put individual events together – hence the musical variety on the line-up.
Speaking of which, here it is!
