The first line-up details have been revealed for multi-venue indoor/outdoor Sea Change Festival, which takes place within and around Totnes & Dartington, South Devon, at a new time of year, the late May bank holiday weekend from Friday 24th until Sunday 26th May 2019. Expanding this year from 2 days to three days, the third day has music sets, talks and events culminating in a special afternoon matinee headline performance at Dartington to close the festival.
There's a first look at new documentary film 'King Rocker', about Robert Lloyd, the front man and lyricist of The Nightingales, . They'll play a live show, while there's also a panel talk with director Michael Cumming along with comedian Stewart Lee.
Musicians Sandra Kerr And John Faulkner will perform live the songs of animated classic Bagpuss following the reissue of the soundtrack, and there's a late night set from Gazelle Twin. Hannah Peel and Will Burns will perform in St Mary's Church, while Field Music's Peter Brewis collaborates with Admiral Fallow's Sarah Hayes as You Tell Me, and there's Dutch 4-piece Pip Blom, as well as TVAM.
Sea Change founder Rupert Morrison said, "For our fourth edition, we drew up a list of our favourite friends and artists and just went for broke; we just asked them and we're still pinching ourselves that we convinced Metronomy to come and play a massive homecoming show on the Sea Change stage. I guess we're doing something right; maybe we're just doing something different? Shabaka Hutchings' saxophone has been a huge part of our last 18 months, as have numerous of Stewart Lee's incendiary pearls of wisdom...and as for the saggy old cloth cat... Sea Change IV is already shaping up to be our dream line up. As ever, there is plenty more to come!"
