Originally set to be taking place on 10th July, Sports Team have announced that they’ll be moving their annual Margate bus trip to 23rd July!
Now taking place at Margate’s Dreamland and raising money for Stagehand Crew Relief Fund and Music Venues Trust, Sports Team will be joined by Courting, Los Bitchos, Bull, English Teacher, and TV Priest.
“I think like everyone we’ve felt fairly crushed by the relentless cancellations,” Sports Team’s Alex Rice says. “You’ve got a load of bands around desperate to play and it’s got to the stage where the quickest route to doing that seemed to be putting on a day festival ourselves. We’re taking Bus Trip to Dreamland on the day that should’ve been Truck Festival to raise money for the Stagehand Crew Relief Fund and Music Venues Trust. That matters, because we want to play a part in keeping together all the infrastructure that makes touring and playing music in this country feel like the greatest thing in the world. Also it makes me feel a bit like Geldoff. So it’s cheap tickets, coastal, barely organised, first big weekend, Friday night, 23rd July. Have at it.”
