Win the Ultimate Music and Beer Bundle With Lazydays Festival

There’s nothing quite like listening to the music you love while sipping on a crisp, cold beer. That’s why we’ve joined forces with Lazydays – Southend’s finest craft drinks and music festival – to deliver an unmissable prize that will have your toes tapping and tastebuds singing. 

Having just announced its partnership with our good friends at Leigh on Sea Brewery, Lazydays is giving one lucky person the chance to win our very own R2 Smart Music System and twelve Ruark × LOSB beers.

With its slim profile, comprehensive radio and streaming options, and powerful sound, R2 fits easily and unobtrusively into your surroundings, and makes immersing in the music you love the most a simple pleasure.

The winner will also receive six cans of Beach Hut Brew (released in 2021 to celebrate the launch of our R1 Mk4 radio in Beach Hut Blue), as well as six cans of Rhythm & Brews, the latest Ruark IPA crafted in collaboration with Leigh on Sea Brewery.

To enter, simply sign up to the Lazydays mailing list by 23:59 on the 31st of May (T&Cs apply).

Running from 26th-28th July at Southend’s Priory Park, Lazydays connects local and independent craft drink producers with their communities, celebrating the essence of craftsmanship in all its forms. Championing independent businesses that pour everything they have into creating best-in-class beers, gins, wines, food products and more, attendees can expect a voyage of drink discovery as they learn from the brewers, distillers, vintners, and cocktail makers themselves.

The festival also promises an unmissable music line-up, with performances from The Hoosiers, Mystery Jets, The Futureheads, Newton Faulkner, Sleeper, The Cuban Brothers, DJ Yoda, David Rodigan, Craig Charles, and more. In addition, an epic suite of food trucks will bring a host of taste sensations to the party, alongside clever demonstrations that will inspire home cooks to get creative in the kitchen.

Mike Bromfield, Director at Lazydays Festival says, “We’ve had Ruark products in our homes for years and the reason why Lazydays is so aligned with such a world-leading (but proudly Southend-based) company is because we both champion British craftsmanship.”

“We want Lazydays to build a community of people who have a huge affinity with these local producers and continue to use them time and time again. And it goes without saying, Ruark and Lazydays share a huge love of music.”

As for his ideal music and beer combination?

“Craig Charles on BBC 6 Music is on in the background (our Friday night headliner), while the drink in hand is a Leigh-on-Sea Brewery × Ruark collaboration – Beach Hut Brew, a New England Pale Ale. Those tropical notes with the juicy low-bitterness finish make for perfect outdoor in-the-sun drink!”
