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.”

Help keep Loud And Quiet going

As an independent title, it’s become harder than ever to make the numbers add up.
