Sea Change have announced the first part of their line-up for 2020

To Devon – for a festival where things are always different, always intimate

Drift is a wonderful record store in Totnes, Devon and Sea Change is the festival they’ve been throwing for the past four years.

It’s put together with all the detail and passion that you’d expect from one of the country’s most thoughtful music emporiums.

Onto 2020, though. Next year, their fifth festival, takes place nearby at the Dartington Hall Estate. There’s the main site, plus the festival utilises nearby modernist buildings like High Cross House and Foxhole Gymnasium.

It’s happening 22 – 24 May.

This first blast of line-up includes: Tim Burgess, Shirley Collins, Field Music (performing Making A New World), Vanishing Twin, Squid, Working Men’s Club, Dry Cleaning (photographed, top), Katy J Pearson, Porridge Radio, Keel Her, Awesome Tapes From Africa (DJ) and Richard Norris (DJ).

Tickets are available right now. More artists to be announced early in 2020, too.

Festival founder Rupert Morrison says: “At Dartington, Sea Change is based on a site that has historically welcomed generations of free thinkers. The estate is intrinsically special, its spirit is under our skin and we want to create something intimate, rare and special that will inspire a community.”

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
