The End of Summer Beach Party, a two-day music festival, will take place in Paphos this weekend at Mandria Beach.

Organisers of the two-day, dog friendly, rock music festival are hoping to establish it as a main annual event for the island. Tickets are available online, while under 12s can attend for free and there will also be free camping.

Nine live bands will take to the stage, including Minus One, who will headline on Saturday night while the Max Aloisi Trio will headline on Sunday, organisers told the Cyprus Mail.

Market stalls and food trucks will sell hot food, ice cream, coffee and soft drinks. Bars will also offer drinks including draft Prosecco.

BFBS presenter Anthony Ballard will kick the event off at 12.30 on Saturday. Then the music will get underway with The Elderly Brothers. The line-up also includes: Kevin Abraham, Too Hot For Red, Marios Danos and the Dizzy Bees in addition to large outdoor movie screen.

On Sunday at 12 noon, Stefanos Georgiadis Loop Station Project will perform, followed by The Real Thing, Jamie Paul and the Max Aloisi Trio.

Event organisers, Julie Price and Sarah Linley have a vision to create, “the best music event experiences in Cyprus”. Julie is a singer and Sarah used to work for a record label.

“We are also both bikers and met a few years ago when we formed The Island Angels, an all women motorcycle club. Since then, we’ve helped and organised many events, including the Mandria FEST in May, a 12-hour music event where we helped raise in excess of €5,000 for charity”.

The pair said they wanted to create a “proper” music festival with two-days of music, reasonable priced food and drink and free camping, something you could come and stay at and enjoy for the entire weekend, a destination event.
