GoldCoast Oceanfest returns this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with one band particularly glad to be back. It was the first festival the Sunset Sons ever played but this time around they are topping the bill. A sneaky surf and perhaps a cheeky pint in The Thatch are on the bands to do list in between headlining the festival at Croyde on Saturday. The Gazette caught up with the surfing musicians Rory, Jed, Pete and Rob to find out what they are looking forward to during their visit and the 18th instalment of three day surf, music and lifestyle festival that is Oceanfest.What do you like about North Devon, have you visited the area regularly?The countryside and the people! Such dramatic coastlines and green rolling hills coupled with some of the nicest folk you can come across have made for a great visit every time we have been there. The waves around Croyde are epic as well. We had a few really good surfs at Putsborough!What is it you like about Oceanfest?Its a really cool story for us because its the first festival we played together. Now, two years later, we are top of the bill. The guys who run it have really supported us from the start. Its great to have festivals like Oceanfest really looking after acts and keeping it going in their own community.What are you looking forward to this year?Same thing as last time: A few tall, frosty ciders and some rock n roll! What can the audience expect this time?Weve been playing pretty extensively since Christmas so we are super tight together and were having a great time. Weve tweaked a few songs to make the most of them live... but youll have to wait and see.How do you plan to chill at the festival before and after your set?With a few tall, frosty ciders in the sun (fingers crossed). Always cool to check out a few bands throughout the day too. Theres a band called The Eskies playing the same slot we played two years ago, so we hope to get down and catch them.Is there anything else you plan to do in North Devon while youre here?Were going to try to sneak a surf in the day after we play with some of our mates down that way and maybe grab a cheeky ale at the Thatch in Croyde.With DJ Fresh topping the bill on Friday and KT Tunstall headlining on Sunday, there is something to suit all tastes, not to mention the huge array of things to see and do in the arena - read our 10 things to look out for at the festival here.For more information and tickets go to http://goldcoastoceanfest.co.uk For more North Devon stories visit our news feed here.
