Sea Change festival in Totnes has established quite a name for itself in its two years of its existence. Started by Drift Record shop, its knowledgeable owners have enticed a raft of stellar names both emerging and established, to play at a host of quirky venues around the town. There’s the restored Totnes Cinema, two micro-breweries and a ballroom, amongst many others.
A new venue for this year has just been announced – the historic Dartington Hall, which has served as a centre for the arts for many years. Dartington will be the new home for Sea Change’s main stage, allowing for music to go on later into the night, and a greater capacity than previously.
Dartington Hall’s new Food and Drink Director, Oliver Rowe, will be getting involved with food projects for the festival, plus there will be some specially-created guest beers and a beer festival.
There will also be a new programme of nature and ecology based workshops.
And the lineup? The first artists will be revealed shortly.
Sea Change: Friday 24 and Saturday 25 August
