Sea Change

NEWS: Bo Ningen, Richard Dawson and The Wave Pictures added to the inaugural Sea Change line up

Dates: 26th – 27th 2016
Location: Totnes, Devon

With partners like Totnes’award-winning shop Drift Records, Heavenly Recordings and that unfaltering bastion of forward-looking music The Quietus, Sea Change was always going to be very special. To confirm our initial predictions, following their first line-up announcement of British Sea Power, TOY and Luke Abbott, this all-new festival in Devon has just revealed more names that will make many more established events look shamefully dull.

Dark Northumbrian folk experimentalist Richard Dawson and Jonathan Richman tribute super-group Modern Ovens will join psychedelic noiseniks No Ningen as part of The Quietus Presents takeover of the Totnes’ South Devon Arts Centre on the Saturday night.

Recent Billy Childish collaborators The Wave Pictures, Bella Union’s melodic wizard BC Camplight, Kentucky singer/songwriter Joan Shelly and off-kilter guitar pop three-piece The Drink have all been confirmed to take part in this year’s debut event.

Also performing over the weekend are free-jazz trio Death Shanties, the Shetland-born multi-instrumentalist Thirty Pounds of Bone, Brighton-based mass-member mob The Pure Conjecture and Sound of Yell. The latter centre on Stevie Jones who has collaborated with Arab Strap and recorded for Chemikal Underground.

Weekend tickets are on sale now priced £45 from the Drift Record Shop or online at
