THE first artists have been announced for this year's Sea Change Festival in Totnes and feature a band formed in Falmouth and an artist that is just about to release a Cornish language album.

Red River Dialect have gone from performing around Cornwall after being formed in Falmouth by former Jam record shop employee David Morris, to a two page feature in national music magazine Uncut.

Also appearing will be Welsh/Cornish artist Gwenno who will be promoting her first Cornish language album ‘Le Kov’ which translates as “the place of memory”.

As well as Gwenno and Red River Dialect also announced are Lost Horizons, The Weather Station, Andrew Weatherall, Hater, Hatis Noit, Sweet Baboo, Penelope Isles, Boy Azooga, Group Listening and Earth Recordings Present - 'The Ballad of Shirley Collins'.

All this and still so much more to be announced.

Weekend tickets are priced at £69.00 and are on sale now online via seetickets or in person at Drift Records.

There are also limited deposit scheme tickets available. Local information to include accommodation is on our website and the festival will be selling camping tickets in the Spring.

This year the festival has partnered up with their neighbours in Dartington. Although the festival is still very much based in Totnes with a full offering of music, arts, talks and events in the town, this is now accompanied by a new large-scale space at Dartington for everybody to congregate and party late into the night.
