Victoria Witter, Resident Office DJ at Ben Jerry’s said: “If there is one thing better than a creamy tub of whipped Sundaes on a summer’s day, it's rocking out to an entire Sundaes-inspired festival by the beach! Sundaes On The Pier takes Ben Jerry’s fun-filled festival experience to a whole new level, with amazing acts, better attractions and even more ice cream!

"As Ben Jerry’s resident office DJ, I’m super excited to hand over the playlist responsibilities to the professionals for one day only so I can kick back in the sun.”
