FATBOY Slim is calling on fans who attended the Big Beach Boutique 2 to share their photos and videos ahead of the 20th anniversary of the concert.

More than 250,000 concert goers gathered on Brighton Beach on July 13, 2002, in what was described as the “biggest event Sussex has ever seen.”

The crowd was more than four times the expected size and at the time, doubled Brighton’s population.

A year earlier, about 40,000 people attended the first of the Big Beach Boutique events.

But in 2002, Fatboy Slim, real name Norman Cook, performed the second of his free open-air concerts on Brighton beach in front of a record breaking crowd.

Norman Cook took to social media on Tuesday in hope of finding fans willing to share their stories from the day.

The 57-year-old musician also teased that “something special” was in the pipeline in preparation for the 20th anniversary of the event next year.

In a tweet, he said: “It’s the 20th anniversary of Big Beach Boutique II next year, if you were there, we would love to hear your stories from the day.

“Please email them to: bigbeach@fatboyslim.net .Please send any video footage or photos you have too.

“We’re making something special.”

While the event went down in Brighton music history, it wasn’t without incident.

As Fatboy Slim performed on stage, party goers on the beach had to be rescued from the sea.

A total of 160 people suffered minor injuries, while 11 people were taken to hospital. Six people were arrested.

A woman also died after falling from the Upper Esplanade, while a man also died of a heart attack shortly after the concert.
