What’s Happening In The Arena?

The 16th GoldCoast Oceanfest (20th-22nd June 2014) takes place against the majestic backdrop of North Devons’ Gold Coast on the golden sands of Croyde Bay.


A licensed bar is operated over the festival period within opening hours in accordance to our license. St Austell Brewery’s have coordinated the very best hi-tech draught delivery system to ensure swift ordering, offering an ice-cold, thirst quenching selection of drinks from Tuborg Lager, Tribute, Thatchers Gold Original, GoldCoast Shiraz, Rose and Chenin Blanc – South African Wine. Soft drinks and stilled water are also available.


Renowned for an action packed programme, GoldCoast rolls out 20 bands over 3 days in one of the most glorious festival settings in the world. A sporting weekend compliments proceedings with over 1000 people taking part and organising a dozen testing competition formats designed to test the best on the beach and in the waters around Croyde Bay. Crowning moments take place amongst the hubbub and jostle of the festival arena, home to the famous Adrenalin Zone.

Trade Village

Trading at Oceanfest

If you have never been to Oceanfest then the GoldCoast shopping experience is one to savour. The place has an energy and a vibe that is the envy of many bigger events, and the crowd demographic makes the market traders smile all the way to the bank.

Originally one of the add on experiences at the Oceanfest, the Trade Village is now a vital part of the GoldCoast with so much for you to choose from as you wend your way through the hundreds of bargains on offer. Retail therapy has been widely acknowledged as a way to cure the blues… on the GoldCoast, under sunny skies… what better way to blow your hard earned cash? So move on down, like the livesounds drifting on the breeze and take advantage of the big label bargains jumping out to bite your hands off!

Trader Application

Demand for stalls always exceeds our capacity, so we shall continue to afford our existing traders the opportunity to renew first and thereafter offer those persons on the waiting list the chance to be part of something special. To be fair to everyone concerned we screen applicants for the kind of trader we feel would best compliment the mix, thus ensuring we offer the widest range and best deals for our visitors.

The above policy applies to Caterers too, although we have had the same imaginative and passionate food fundies for many years now. To be honest the chances of them relinquishing their spots are slim, however you never know, so if you believe you have a unique food brand or cooking style that we have not got covered, and your intentions are organic and healthy, then do share a mouthful! Catering applications now closed. If you have been successful we will be in touch.

Please use the form on the Contact page to ask to be added to the waiting list.
