Kitesurfing Armada Festival 2018

The UK’s best kitesurfing event will return to Hampshire later this month.

People will enjoy an exhilarating weekend at the 2018 Kitesurfing Armada Festival, from 22nd to 24th June.

Taking place on the beautiful Hayling Island, there will be lots taking place around the arena to ensure festival-goers are entertained for every hour of the day.

With live music across two stages, a marquee full of merchandise, a family zone, yoga, hot tubs, pro BMX displays, delicious food, craft stalls, DJ’s, parties, bars and more. Let’s not forget about plenty of kitesurfing too!

Whether your intention is to kitesurf all day, or relax with a beer with friends, the festival organisers have you covered.

This month’s Armada aims to build on the success of last year’s event, in which 6,000 people enjoyed all what was on offer.

As the festival continues to develop since its launch six years ago, Kitesurfing Armada founder, Dan Charlish, says the event is a brilliant way to get people into the summer festival vibe.

He said: “We are really looking forward to coming back to Hayling Island to deliver the festival once again. It was fantastic to see everyone enjoying all the live music, watching the kitesurfing and getting into the summer festival vibe last year. This time around we have got even more great bands lined up. It should be a great weekend.”

If kitesurfing isn’t your thing, then that’s okay; there is so much happening, so it is guaranteed to be an entertaining two days for all.

The event organisers distribute all funds raised by the kitesurfing event itself, as well as other sponsorship schemes which will be offering activities on the weekend, to a range of brilliant youth and rescue charities – to date raising £180,000.

There is no charge to attend the festival, but visitors must register online for their free tickets at: More information is available at their website.
