So from one free, beach-related festival to another. Whilst Hastings may not offer quite the same summer temperatures as Italy's Adriatic coast you can't raise a moan about free shows from the immense Missing Souls and those equally unmissable beat merchants from this side of La Manche The Baron Four.
