12th - 14th July 2019 - Tunes on the Sands - Beach Festival
It’s a brand new festival, set on beautiful Blackpool Sands in Devon, just 5 miles from Dartmouth. With a back drop of scenic forests and hills, this will be a truly unique event where you can enjoy an ice cold beverage with the ocean only a stone’s throw away.
Born from the incredible festival ‘Tunes in the Dunes’ on Perranporth beach in Cornwall, that has seen artists such as Status Quo, John Newman, UB40 ft Ali, Astro & Mickey, Clean Bandit, Dizzee Rascal, the Waterboys, James Morrison, Billy Ocean + many more … This is a one of a kind event for Blackpool Sands in Devon, not to be missed.
The event will take place on the 12-14th July 2019 with camping available nearby.
