Three days of truly unique events happening inside Totnes' Grade I-listed St Mary’s Church, the ethically innovative Bull Inn, the gold-ceilinged Barrel House Ballroom, the 17th-century Birdwood House, the exquisitely-restored Totnes Cinema, the hugely important Civic Hall space and the award-winning Drift Record Shop among others.

Friday night will be headlined by the Mercury-nominated Porridge Radio, who were due to play at the 2020 event, which was eventually scuppered by the pandemic. Vocalist and songwriter, Dana Margolin, did play a special live set for Sea Change ‘Goes Online’, but the full-band’s live performance will be a euphoric reminder of just what we’ve missed over the last two years.

Also announced today: acclaimed songwriter and linguist, Gwenno, who returns to Totnes after a dazzling show in support of her acclaimed ‘Le Kov’ album in 2018; Scottish Album of the Year award- winning singer-songwriter, Kathryn Joseph; Bristol’s enigmatic country/pop song crafter, Katy J Pearson; Emmy Award winning soundtrack composer and pianist, Michael Price; Rough Trade’s new eight-piece longform space-rockers, caroline; the propulsive London synth/drum duo, Soccer96; Scottish writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Andrew Wasylyk; Émilie Tiersen as Quinquis, whose new record, Seim, is steeped in her Breton family history and released just before the festival; Speedy Wunderground Yorkshire punks, The Lounge Society; and two of Dublin’s finest new exports with MELTS and Silverbacks.

Sea Change continues its tradition of presenting phenomenally exciting new talents, this year including Sinead O’Brien, Lucy Gooch, Tara Clerkin Trio, Charlotte Spiral, HighSchool, Fran Lobo and DITZ. Also returning to Sea Change are fellow Devon natives, Pale Blue Eyes (who have just joined the BBC 6Music B-list).

And, as a very special launch night event, on Thursday 26th May, the world-renowned Chilly Gonzales will perform an intimate solo piano concert at Dartington's Great Hall, amid the beautiful gardens and woodland of the historic cultural site, just along the road from Totnes.

More artists will be announced in February, including film and literature events in partnership with Rough Trade Books, White Rabbit and Faber & Faber.
