Grinagog Festival is set on the breathtaking Torquay coastline and a stones throw from Abbey Sands beach. 

This is the stuff of dreams. The places and spaces across the Bay inspire artists, musicians, writers and explorers.
Centred around the 800 year old Torre Abbey site (an instagrammers dream and renowned Ancient Scheduled Monument), with use of the RICC main stages too; this is an unforgettable and rare festival setting. 


2017 was the debut Grinagog Festival, showcasing local artists alongside international artists including Rat Boy, Congo Natty, Akala, Sam and the Womp, Jah Shaka Soundsystem, Slamboree, Electric Swing Circus, Hacktivist, Mix Master Morris and DJ Steve Davies. Thousands of you came and told us you'd be back for more! Post festival, we were nominated for Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards and Festival Director, DJ Chris Tofu received a Royal seal of approval with an MBE for his services to music - the perfect finale to 2017.
