A short thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being part of Sea Change 2018.

We're just at the end of an incredibly intense few weeks work and all trying to take a few moments to take in the past weekend; the bands, the sites, the tastes, the drinks and most of all the friends. 

Once we've all had a few days off from Rupert, we'll no doubt start talking about our highlights, sharing some images and talking about the future.

Until then, thank you again.

The entire Sea Change team.

New Lion Brewery Sessions

Mostly so that we can again claim to have organised a 'piss-up at a brewery', we're delighted to be working with the local New Lion Brewery for a set of live sessions from their tap room. The brewery has hosted live sessions previously during Sea Change from Seamus Fogarty, James Yorkston, Alasdair Roberts, Ultimate Painting, Jim Ghedi, The Proper Ornaments and Ryley Walker.

This year they will be joined by;

5.00pm – Hater
6pm – Penelope Isles

2.00pm – Red River Dialect
3.30pm – Saint Leonard’s Horses


As usual, gigs are free, open to anyone whether they have a Sea Change wristband or not, although if you do have a Sea Change band it will get you a 10% discount at the bar.

Spoiler alert, it's pretty stunning.

MUTE 4.0 (1978 > TOMORROW)

Mute and specifically the influential independent British label’s founder, Daniel Miller, have never been ones for looking back. The label has always sought ways to celebrate all of its varied artists, but there has never been a focus on just the label, and MUTE 4.0 (1978 > TOMORROW) is not about to change that.

We are thrilled to have Mute with us For Sea Change 2018, featuring showcases from Josh T. Pearson, Chris Carter, Daniel Blumberg, Can’s Damo Suzuki and Lost Under Heaven, with Cosey Fanni Tutti in conversation with Emma Warren.

A special series of reissues on limited edition coloured vinyl are planned for October, and will include “probably the world’s first teenage electronic pop group”, Silicon Teens, and their one and only album ‘Music For Parties’; Mute’s first signing, Fad Gadget – ‘Fireside Favourites’; Josh T. Pearson’s lauded ‘Last Of The Country Gentlemen’, Apparat – ‘The Devil’s Walk’; Vince Clarke and Martin Gore’s project, VCMG – ‘Ssss’ and A Certain Ratio – ‘The Graveyard & The Ballroom’.

Pearson will be released on gold vinyl, Apparat on violet and the rest will be on very limited Mute 4.0 orange vinyl.
