Also on the lineup: JEREMY DELLER AND COLD WAR STEVE. Plus Islet and Pozi, Tim Burgess, Shirley Collins, Field Music, Vanishing Twin, Squid, Working Men’s Club, Dry Cleaning, Katy J Pearson, Porridge Radio and Keel Her.
A host of award-winning writers and artists are confirmed for Rough Trade Books stage, including Wendy Erskine, David Keenan and 4 Brown Girls Who Write. Rough Trade will be in residence all weekend, in a beautiful new dedicated ‘Yurts for Life’ space.
Online art phenomenon, Cold War Steve, is a modern great; the cult chronicler of the Brexit age, whose ability to expose the absurdities of Britain was reflected with the accolade of being asked to design a Time magazine front cover, will be in conversation and at work at Sea Change. Warning: may contain Fray Bentos, a sagging Morrissey in the undergrowth, the PM pursued by bears… and Cilla.
On the festival poster is a simple phrase which has been gathering momentum: ‘Let Us Face the Future’. Taking inspiration from Dartington’s rich history in arts and social justice, Sea Change 2020 has a pronounced interest in emerging talent. High Cross House will host workshops and conversations with musicians, broadcasters, educators, writers and thinkers addressing where we are in 2020.
