The first ever Electric Beach Festival in Cornwall will feature a live performance from hip-hop legends De La Soul.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - July 10th, 2012 - The sands of Watergate Bay near Newquay will provide the venue of the first ever Electric Beach Festival on Saturday July 28th.

Iconic US hip-hop act De La Soul have signed up to headline the one-day event, which is expected to attract roughly 2,500 revellers to the Cornish coast.

With the likes of The Nextmen, The Scribes, Backbeat Soundsystem and The Breaks Collective also due to perform, the festival's inaugural edition looks set to be a memorable occasion.

De La Soul have stood among hip-hop's most celebrated acts since the New York trio's debut album 3 Feet High and Rising was released to widespread acclaim in 1989.

Earlier this year, group members Pos and Dave released a concept album as First Serve, an aspiring hip-hop act trying to make it in the music industry.

Standard tickets for Electric Beach can be purchased online and are priced at £24.50 plus booking fee, with the entertainment due to begin at 13:00 BST and go on until the sun goes down.

There is also a VIP ticket option, available for £34.50 plus booking fee, which provides admission to the festival after-party at The Chy Bar in Newquay.

Music fans seeking places to stay in Newquay can browse a large selection of accommodation at LateRooms.com, which recommends the Great Western Hotel.
