Dreamland Margate: The Specials
We’re excited to announce that The Specials will be coming to Dreamland this August Bank Holiday Weekend! With special guests to be announced, you won't want to miss out on this event at our very own Scenic Stage.
The Specials are back with ten songs on a brand new album. Influential, important and exhilarating live, they are a band embedded in this country's DNA. It is impossible to envisage the musical landscape without them, from the startling, angular Gangsters in 1979 to their swan song, the epoch-making Ghost Town in 1981. They infused ska with punk, homegrown political anxiety with wider issues. The Specials' ascendancy was swift. Two years, seven hit singles including two number ones, two hit albums, sell-out tours – the mass stage-invasions and audience energy only adding to the myth. They were everywhere; on Top of the Pops, Radio One, nightclubs and school discos.
This brand-new event is brought to you from Fifty Six Group, the creators of the celebrated sell out Demon Dayz with Gorillaz which took place at Dreamland in 2017.
Please note, this is a 18+ event. Over 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
Tickets will go on sale Thursday 1st April at 9am.
