Zap Festival


3 May – 25 May
Dome Car Park, Brighton

Zap Festival
From the outset the Zap organised gigs to coincide with the Brighton Festival, but in 1986 it opened its first circus tent as a venue for rock, pop and cabaret. This became a Festival centre for tell-your-friends music, comedy, performance and everything interestingly alternative.

A feature of the programme was the �Best of the Festival’ slot (hosted on Wednesdays by Ian Smith and on Fridays by Simon Fanshawe) in which the best bands and performers were featured.
