Grinagog Festival Torquay 2017
A WEEKEND OF MUDLESS MISCHIEF BY THE SEA!
Over 200 acts across Torquay from the people behind the music at Glastonbury’s Shangri-La.
From award-winning festival producers Continental Drifts, the musical heart and soul behind Glastonbury’s Shangri-la, Bestival’s Caravanserai, Boomtown’s Ballroom Stage and Wilderness’ Carousel, comes a brand new addition to the Spring Festival calendar. For the first time, a world-class music festival will descend on the beautiful seaside town of Torquay for a weekend of escapism and adventure to transform even the most jaded festival goer into a tropical, grinning party monster!
A myriad of musical genres will be represented across 15 stages, ranging from the beautiful historical 12th century Torre Abbey to bustling harbourside nightclubs and rock venues with over 200 live bands, solo artists, and DJs. All this alongside street performers, art installations, talks and workshops, award-winning food, outdoor pursuits and much more. With a “No Mud Guarantee,” palm trees aplenty and adventures big and small; get ready to escape the humdrum with Grinagog in Torquay against the backdrop of the stunning English Riviera.
Torquay is part of the Geo Park-status English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, and is formed by other towns of Paignton and Brixham. A popular seaside tourist destination for well over a century, Torquay has well-established travel links with the rest of the country.
