Award-winning record shop Drift have announced plans to curate and present their own festival, set to take place across the August Bank Holiday weekend (26th & 27th August) of 2016 in the Southwest town of Totnes, where they are based.
The festival, titled Sea Change, is set to host an array of Film, Literature, talks and Music as it takes over five venues across the Devon town. Drift have said that the festival “will embody an anthesis for apathy” and hopes the festival will spark enthusiasm and interest in the surrounding area.
A first wave of acts have been announced for the music-portion of events, the much celebrated British Sea Power having been announced as headliners for Saturday 26th at Totnes Civic Hall, while London-based producer Rival Consoles will bring his thoroughly regarded, Erased Tapes–released 2015 record ‘Howl’ to the proceedings on Friday 26th at the South Devon Art Centre.
Also announced is that revered label Heavenly will be curating the Friday evening at The Civic Hall, celebrating the innovative output that has come from their catalogue in recent years. Also joining the label on the Friday over at the South Devon Art College will be electronic producer Luke Abbott, while home-grown group Matthew & Me are set to play on the Saturday.
