The Brighton Mod Weekender 2023 will take place over the Bank Holiday Weekend, from 24th to the 28th 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. But 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.
