The Brighton Mod Weekender 2024 will take place over the Bank Holiday Weekend, from the 22nd to the 25th of August.
The New Untouchables started the Brighton Mod Weekender back in 2004 (after similar events in different locations, such as the Isle of Wight and Margate). But for almost 20 years, the event has grown in its Brighton location, with plenty to keep you entertained this year. Note that many events tend to sell out ahead of the weekend, so make sure you pick up tickets for the ticketed events well in advance.
You can view images of many past Brighton Weekenders in the gallery section of the website. Like one above, for example.
The main evening events are held at Brighton’s best venue, the Komedia, situated just a few doors down from Jump The Gun.
See the flyers above and below for details of the live music acts playing over the weekend. Tickets for the bands are available here.
The Komedia has two rooms with a HUGE WOODEN DANCEFLOOR, AIR CONDITIONING and two well-priced bars with great service and friendly staff.

The daytime events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday are at the Volks, 200 yards east of Brighton Pier (where the scooters arrive in the iconic film Quadrophenia). The Volks has a well-stocked bar and serves food all day, complete with a big outside terrace.
The daytime sessions are from noon until 6pm with DJs and a market selling records, vintage and bespoke clothes, art, and memorabilia.
The council have informed us that scooters parked sensibly on the Madeira Drive promenade on Friday, Saturday and Sunday are fine if they are not obstructing pedestrians and the disabled access pavement areas.
SCOOTER RIDEOUT SUNDAY:
Meet at the Roedean Cafe car park on A259 opposite the Marina between 1.30-2pm (make sure you leave Madeira Drive in plenty of time).
The route will travel to PEACEHAVEN ROUNDABOUT AND BACK DIRECTLY TO BRIGHTON VIA THE PIER ROUNDABOUT.

Sunday afternoon is the eagerly anticipated Scooter Competition held outside the Volks between 15.00–16.00 (PLEASE STAY WITH YOUR SCOOTER IF YOU WISH TO ENTER).
