Weekend tickets are available priced at £55. Children under 12 do not require a ticket but will need to be accompanied by an adult in all venues. The festival have reported that they are 75% sold out.


The festival is programmed with loads of interesting events across the weekend. Some of the venues will be operating an 18+ only rule on the door, but this, for the very best part, refers to late night shows. If your children and young adults are going to be into it, then they are very welcome indeed. Organisers ask you don't drag your little ones along to a panel talk they may find boring.


Camping is not counted as part of the ticket, however camping will be available as neighbouring Dartington Estate are to provide a picturesque spot. There will also be Sea Change shuttle busses all day and... well, till a good hour. Weekend camping tickets cost £10 and are available to buy now at the Sea Change online box office or physically at the Drift Record Shop.

Sea Change is a town festival based in buildings and streets with plenty of local accommodation and campsites in the area, the festival is hoping to provide subsidised rates.


There will be late night trains (times TBC) running to Newton Abbott, Exeter St. Davids and Plymouth stations. There will also be a bus service running to Torbay. Please keep checking back for full details closer to the event.

More information will be here when available.
