Elbow frontman, BBC Radio 6 DJ and now successful solo artist, multi-talented GUY GARVEY is the first headline act to be announced in the line-up for the Lusty Glaze Sundowner Sessions on the 28th of June 2016.
For more than 25 years AND COUNTING as Elbow’s leading man, Garvey has achieved huge success with arguably one of Britain’s biggest bands. Sporting a mantelpiece full of awards, a Brit, MERCURY PRIZE and an Ivor Novello to name just a trio, Garvey is now ALSO going solo and receiving critical acclaim in the process.
Music fans can wish for no better spot to enjoy live music than Lusty Glaze Beach. With the sand at your feet and a breath-taking sunset backdrop, this stunning little amphitheatre is positively unique.

Debut album Courting The Squall went straight into the top 3 on release at the end of last year. The Album is completely and totally Guy’s creation AND following a recent SOLD OUT performance at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire, Pete Naughton from the Telegraph claimed “Garvey looked and sounded like a musician in career-best form, who is joyously making the most of it.”

Lusty Glaze Beach owner, Tracey Griffiths: “As a huge Elbow fan myself, having watched and enjoyed the band perform over the years, we are over the moon to be welcoming such a GUY AND HIS BAND to the beach.  HIS music fits perfectly with the atmosphere of our natural amphitheatre, we feel extremely privileged to have secured such a fantastic artist”

This is the first announcement from another incredible calendar of sound at the popular beach resort. Aside from several ticketed headline gigs, the Lusty Glaze Sundowner Sessions offer a run of live, acoustic artists playing free of charge each week in this stunning cove.

Tickets are now on sale at £30 per person
