Celebrating the end of exams, the beginning of summer, and all round love for life Beach Break Live is the ultimate student blow out, the one un-missable UK student holiday. Unless you've been living under a seashell for the past few months, Noisettes will have come on your radar with their seductive, funky and electric charm. Lead singer Shingai Shoniwa has been hailed by the Guardian as 'One of the true great front women of our time' and they have been making waves on both sides of the Atlantic. The stage is set for exhilarating seaside antics as the 3-piece sail into Beach Break Live.

Storming into the preened drunk-on-neon soundscape of nu rave, Hadouken! land in a whirlwind of red bull fuelled realism with no time for small talk! Born from the hyper imagination of a Leeds art student, the band have spent the last two years surfing the cutting edge of the music scene, armed with enough sonic ideas to make your generic indie bands run for cover. The last year of Hadouken!'s hectic ascension to the top flight has seen them blow the
rocking sold-out crowds touring across the UK ending in a blistering show at London's Astoria, and building an insanely devoted online fanbase, the quartets mash up of grime, techno and punk will set our Beach Breakers pulses racing.

Dan Le Sac & Scroobius Pip are some of the boldest wordsmiths on the scene. Launching their debut album Angles last year, they made the most eccentric, entertaining and original debut of the 2008. Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip have become the new faces of 'outsider pop', welcomed into the Beach Break tribe at the helm for the next generation of UK rappers.

Breaking bands like Will and the People and Official Secrets Act show the originality of new artists shaping new moulds and showing their colours, waving the flag for the next generation of up and coming bands who have lasting potential. Will and the People is a rich musical blend of ska, pop, indie, electro, reggae and rock. You will love their boisterous, latter-day mash of The Specials and The Police. Whether playing to 15 people in sticky-floored indie dives or supporting the aforementioned Police at Hyde Park, WATP will fit right in at the Beach!

Tayo is a at the forefront on the breaks scene where he can lay claim to helping shape the nu skool sound in the late 90's alongside fellow breaksters Adam Freeland and Rennie Pilgrem. Although confident to rock any breakbeat dancefloor worldwide he also likes to indulge his wider musical taste. As co founder and resident at Basement Jaxx's seminal Rooty club night in south London, he plays out every year on the terrace at Space Ibiza with friend Frank Tope as the Rooty DJ's, and rocking festivals from Homelands London to Creamfields Buenos Aires with his house music hat on.

Unpredictable and irresistible hip hop producers The Nextmen work with Public Enemy, Blackalicious, The Pharcyde and Morcheeba. Constantly road tripping from London around the globe throughout Europe, Australia, Asia- pacific and beyond, the pair are first choice DJs for every walk of hype-hot party and festival. The Nextmen fit right in amongst our Beach Break road trippers who can't wait to get down in our Cornwall audio haven.

With secret arenas, boutique camping, huge games and irresistible nonsense Beach Break Live truly has it all as the only unmissable student festival. Four days of hedonism, sea air, new found friends and incredible music means summer and student life would not be the same without Beach Break, as the defining moment in every end of term calendar there's no need to hesitate - dive right in.
