Preview - Sea Change Festival
You might associate the words Sea Change with Beck's genius break up album of the same name, yet Sea Change is also Devon's worst kept festival secret. Taking place this August Bank Holiday weekend in the bucolic town of Totnes, the festival features some of the best names on the current alternative scene. From Jane Weaver to Girl Ray and Aldous Harding, the lineup is bolstered by some heavy curation by the likes of Heavenly Recordings, The Quietus and Bella Union.
There will also be guest talks from Laura Snapes, Laura Barton and James Endeacott, plus a series of films showing at the restored Totnes Cinema, including 'Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present' (with Q&A from producer Paul Williams), 'Stop Making Sense' and 'Monterey Pop'.
With a tiny 1000 capacity, Sea Change Festival runs across multiple venues. The festival received huge plaudits in its debut outing for attracting an odd-ball line up to a micro-festival in the Devon hills. Venues include a 1960's civic Hall, two micro breweries, a 15th century church, a record shop, galleries, a ballroom, a converted industrial unit, a restored Victorian cinema and other intimate convert spaces. Exhibitions, films, panel talks, specially created guest beers, a beer festival, a camp site on the historic Dartington estate, markets and Totnes' own distinct JuJu.
25-26th August, 2017. Tickets are available here.
