Cowes Yacht Haven Cowes Week line-up


Cowes Yacht Haven has revealed its entertainment line-up for this year’s Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week.

Among the headline acts taking to The GILL Stage will be X Factor finalist Ray Quinn and popular Queen tribute act, The Bohemians. Other acts include island favourites Lucid and Soul Lounge.

Three live acts will take to The GILL Stage every day from 5 to 11.45pm. A DJ and compere will keep the party going between performances and round off each evening with an outdoor disco.

Entry to Cowes Yacht Haven’s shoreside entertainment will be free every day other than Friday 14th (firework night), when tickets will cost £5. They can be bought in advance from the marina office, over the phone on 01983 299975 or on the gate on the day (first come, first served).

Ian Gregory, operations manager at Cowes Yacht Haven, said: “We’re really excited about this year’s line-up and it’s set to be just as exciting on shore in the evenings as it is on the water with the daily racing.

“Visitors told us they loved The Bohemians last year so we’re bringing them back by popular demand. We have everything from acoustic and folk to soul and rock so whatever your musical taste, this Cowes Week we’re set to rock you.”

Other entertainment at Cowes Yacht Haven during Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week includes:

  • A wide range of food stalls including Mexican and Chinese food
  • The famous beer tent, featuring Cowes’ longest bar
  • The GILL pop-up shop
