About Sea Change

Located on the bucolic Dartington Hall Estate, Sea Change is a beautifully intimate festival of stunning outside spaces and utterly unique historic inside spaces.

In just four editions we have been honoured to host; Metronomy, Shirley Collins, The Comet is Coming, Jane Weaver, Gruff Rhys, Aldous Harding, James Holden, British Sea Power, Blanck Mass, Richard Dawson, Andrew Weatherall, Billy Bragg, Peggy Seeger, Hannah Peel, Josh T. Pearson, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Ryley Walker, Adrian Sherwood, Stewart Lee, Bagpuss and another hundred or so amazing artists.

The excellent Devon fest boasts a carefully curated blend of stimulating talks and slightly under-the-radar bands

The Festival was founded by The Drift Record Shop, who still curate the weekend with their most favourite music makers. As the event has grown - so have we - and with a network of friends and partners to include Rough Trade Books, Lush and Dartington, we have expanded to present conversations and installations about art, literature, food, ecology and our beautiful local environment.


As Summer 2019 turns to Autumn, we're working hard to plan the 2020 edition of the festival. Thrilling new music makers, inspiring speakers, rare experiences, dear old friends, our annual cricket match, plus food, drink and sessions that will positively thrill your senses. Keep an eye on us, we'll be sure to post news and updates with our first 2020 announcements this side of Christmas.
