The Caister Weekenders are the UK's largest and longest running soul music event. The very first Caister took place in 1979, four decades ago, truly a milestone achievement for any event and without doubt one of, if not THE, longest running music event in the world. Caister today is more popular than ever and has been filmed by both the BBC and Channel 4 television. The BBC described it as "The UK`s leading Soul music event".

Who would have thought in 1979 when it first began that the Caister Soul Weekender would still be running today, and not just running but stronger and more influential than ever. But it is! Having reached its 35th Birthday in 2014 and now into its 4th decade, with many of the original DJ team intact. (Although a few pounds heavier and all a bit greyer)


The Caister Soul Weekender takes place twice each year, at the beginning of May (over the May Day Bank Holiday) and again at the end of September or beginning of October. Additional special events also take place at other times. The Caister Weekender is now held at what has now become its ancestral home at the UK’s premier privately owned Holiday Centre, boasting many superb facilities hardly dreamed of during the early years of Caister. Many of the regulars that still attend Caister and will be at this years events are the same soul survivors from the early days of `79 through the eighties and nineties. One of the key successes of Caister is the great party atmosphere and for the great mix of people and friendliness at every event, making it truly a real Soul Family.

Although the actual site used to stage the Caister Weekender has changed several times over the years, its home has always been in the Great Yarmouth area, where Caister still reigns supreme as the greatest and the longest running soul music event the world has ever seen. Furthermore Caister shows no sign of slowing down with many of the original DJ team lead by the "Godfather" Chris Hill still involved, along with the Caister Soul Mafia DJ team.


The entire holiday resort complex is exclusively ours for each event. There are several venues in operation, including The Main Arena, The V-Lounge, The Hideout, The Chillout Lounge, The Famous Caister BBQ and not forgetting the fabulous Indoor Waterworld. Each venue features the very best in the wide spectrum of soul music presented by the worlds top DJ team. Special Live guest appearances also take place and over the past thirty years virtually every major soul act and artiste has appeared at a Caister Weekender. The venues are open throughout the day and night and on site the facilities are endless with licensed bars, restaurants, food outlets, games and amusement centres, pool and snooker, sauna, solarium, fitness centre, adventure golf, shops, record and merchandise stalls, supermarket, sports centre, indoor swimming pools, and most importantly...non-stop partying!
