Whilst the rest of the UK is saturated with festivals, Torbay has always lacked a strong creative, music and arts festival, yet it is the perfect seaside setting for a truly memorable experience with friends and family. 2017 was our debut 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 so many of you told us that you'd be back for more. We were also nominated for Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards. 


Forget what you think you know about Torquay. The places and spaces here inspire artists, musicians, writers and explorers. Grinagog Festival is set behind Abbey Sands beach and centred around the 800 year old Torre Abbey site, with use of the RICC stages too. This is an unforgettable and rare festival setting. 

Away from the smog in cities, our hearts are drawn west, where the only dust is earth, and the only barrier is the sky. Head west for the silence that roars from a wild heart.
