Summer in Jersey is all about good vibes, with a dose of sun, sea and fresh sounds. We have created the ultimate summer playlist with six unique music and dance events in Jersey. Step into the futuristic world of Wonky Town, dig out your best 80’s beach attire for a swell time at Good Vibrations and dance the night away with friends at The Weekender. Want to get summer ready?
