Usually on the first weekend of every June, since 2011, Brighton has seen an ever increasing number of Skinheads and their lovely Skinhead Girls invade Brighton. Boots, Braces, pristine clothing and a cheeky smile. Attracting scene members from right across the globe, to Madeira Drive, overlooking the beach. A full three days of Skinhead related entertainment is laid on. DJ’s playing hyper rare vinyl, from the early days of Jamaican Ska, through to modern day Street Punk and Oi. Live bands hit the stage for 3 nights of the Volks bar . With various aftershows happening until the early hours, to keep the party buzzing.
Brighton has several nicknames. Poet Horace Smith called it “The Queen of Watering Places”, which is still widely used,and “Old Ocean’s Bauble”.Novelist William Makepeace Thackeray referred to “Doctor Brighton”, calling the town “one of the best of Physicians”. “London-by-the-Sea” is well-known, reflecting Brighton’s popularity with Londoners as a day-trip resort, a commuter dormitory and a desirable destination for those wanting to move out of the metropolis. “The Queen of Slaughtering Places”, a pun on Smith’s description, became popular when the Brighton trunk murders came to the public’s attention in the 1930s. In 1964 The infamous Mods and Rockers Beach battles would forever place Brigton in the History books for British Youth subcultures. Often referred to as the birth of the Skinhead culture, as those early Mods moved into the Bootboy, Peanut, Skinhead. The Who’s album and film Quadrophenia becoming probably the most iconic movie on subcultures ever made. Punk and Rave, young fashion designers and the mass of indepedant shops around the Laines area to buy a whole range of clothing and vinyl records.
