The annual two day festival run by the National Trust for Jersey in association with Ashburton Investments is celebrating their 10th anniversary.
Tens of thousands of friends and families have enjoyed a mixture of local and international performers in the surroundings of Jersey’s stunning west coast, raising over £70,000 to conserve vulnerable habitats over the past ten years. The Sunset Concerts continue to raise the profile of the coastline campaign to help safeguard Jersey’s natural and build heritage for future generations, as well as the importance of leaving nothing but footprints and taking away nothing but memories.
With perfect harmonies and an enchanting mix of original and cover songs, local band Midriff will get the festivities underway on Friday night. Headliners, The Kim Syvret Quartet, will then play a set of American Songbook classics; expect a perfect blend of traditional jazz with some intriguing contemporary innovations during the exciting performance!
Saturday openers, Hot Juice, take their influences from bands like the Rolling stones and the Arctic Monkeys, their music is nearly impossible not to move to.
Then one of Jersey’s newest bands, Sister Disco, embrace the fashion, flamboyance and grooves that made the 70’s such a vibrant time for music, playing the classics that guarantee a party as the sun goes down.
The Sunset Concerts are a fun way for all ages to engage with and invest in our rich natural environment. The family friendly open-air concerts have become firm fixtures in the summer calendar and are held in the beautiful natural amphitheatre of Grantez as the sun sets over St Ouen’s Bay.
Both evenings are free with a £5 charge per car for on-site parking. All proceeds go towards the National Trust for Jersey’s Coastline Campaign. Parking tickets can be bought online at www.nationaltrust.je/events
Gates open from 5:30pm with performances starting at 7:15pm. Remember to bring a picnic to enjoy while the music plays and take everything with you when you go.
