The Magic Numbers Headline Eastbourne Music Festival Ahead of UK Tour

The Magic Numbers will be giving Eastbourne audiences a first-look into their UK tour as they headline a 3-day festival of live bands in Eastbourne’s Under Ground Theatre from 27-29 March.

Held in an intimate venue for just 200 people, recording studio Echo Zoo Studios is providing music lovers with the chance to hear exclusive material from some of the UK’s best local artists. Headlining the 3-day concert and giving audiences a sneak peek into their new material before setting off on full UK tour is English pop rock band, The Magic Numbers.


The Magic Numbers

The 3-day music extravaganza will kick off with The Magic Numbers on Tuesday 27 March, plus performances from artists such as Ren Harvieu whose distinctive voice first showcased in the Top 5 UK charts with LP ‘Through the Night’. She has performed with an eclectic array of artists from legendary Tom Jones and US rapper Nas to the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition to these top acts, The Goat Roper Rodeo Band will be bringing a touch of country blues to the night with just an upright bass, two guitars and easy-flowing harmonies.

Romeo Stoddart, frontman for The Magic Numbers said “Eastbourne has become a somewhat unlikely but integral anchor within the journey of The Magic Numbers as we’ve found a truly magical place to create music within the heart of Echo Zoo studios. I’ve been working closely alongside owner/producer Dave Lynch on various projects over the past 2 years and we thought that we should celebrate by putting together a few nights of live music.”

Headlining day two of the gig on Wednesday 28 March is Penelope Isles, a sibling duo from Brighton, whose feel-good ‘beach pop’ sound is set to make waves at Eastbourne’s coastal venue. Also providing the soundtrack for the evening is folk-rock, Americana band The Equatorial Group whose music has been described by critics as “smooth, easy to listen to, yet powerful and emotive”. The final performance of the evening to look forward to is The Fiction Aisle, the latest project from Electric Soft Parade’s frontman Thomas White. Bringing together a fine assortment of Brighton musicians, audiences can expect to hear progressive pop of the highest calibre.

In the line-up is performances from 90s musical legends, Mark Morriss (formerly of The Bluetones) and Chris Helme (formerly of The Seahorses) who will be showcasing their solo sound. Audiences can expect Chris Helme’s material to echoes the likes of Gram Parsons and Neil Young, while Mark Morriss showcases his alternative, indie rock music as a solo artist. Songwriter Duke Special will also be performing a repertoire of sing-a-longs and addictive melodies on Thursday 29 March.

Tickets can be bought individually ranging from £12-20 per day or a 3-day pass to see all nine acts is available for £30. Buy tickets at The Vinyl Frontier, Pebble Music, Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre, on the door or online via
