We are very excited today to be announcing the full Kitesurfing Armada Festival Line Up for the 2019 event!
Now in it's 7th year, there will be more action than ever before taking place at the festival this summer. Please check out the new poster below for everything we have planned.
Early Bird tickets have now sold out, but Tier 2 tickets for Camping and Kitesurfing are still available at a discounted price until March 14th, so make sure you get your tickets and join us for an awesome weekend in June!
So what's new? Well the Armada Team have been working hard through the winter to make sure the festival will be the best yet when the summer sun arrives and festival season begins! The event will run over 3 full days this year, with a full kitesurfing and live music schedule for Friday as well – so get down there early and make a long weekend of it!
On the kitesurfing side the recreational kitesurfing area has been expanded along the awesome CBK beach, and we will have a new Pro Demo and Coaching Zone this year located directly on the beach behind the main marquee. The British Kitesurfing Championships return to showcase the best in British talent, and alongside Lewis Crathern the festival will be attended by more World class riders than you can shake a stick at from Aaron Hadlow to Nick Jacobsen, Tom Court to Mark Shinn and Team Bridge - and on his first visit to the Armada, the one and only Ruben Lenten will be joining us and there are rumours of a guest DJ spot - so watch this space!
Sam Light will be leading the Kite SUP Run triathlon to raise funds for the Armada Trust and the event will also host big air comps, a new youth training zone and taster sessions for beginners. Duotone, Cabrinha and more awesome brands than ever before have signed up to exhibit in the marquee, showcasing the latest gear and clothing and giving the best advice to everyone interested in the sport.
On the festival side, 3 days of bands and live music across two stages will keep the festival jumping and the BMX feature returns alongside new slackline and circus skills sessions for the kids. The Horizon Leisure Family Zone will provide loads of other fun activities for the little ones too.
We are working with Ringwood Brewery again to run two festival bars this year, including a new pub style venue on site called the Bar ‘n’ Lines! DJ’s and late-night parties will finish each day in true Armada style.
There will be stalls and stands to browse and an awesome food court with delicious range of quality food options to complete the festival area. As usual a number of charities will be supported and will be present on site, and there are more features are still to be confirmed.
We think you are going to love the 7th annual Kitesurfing Armada Festival on Hayling Island! Tickets are live so please check out the website and get it booked in!
