Tunes on the Sands

Tunes on the Sands is held every July on the beautiful Blackpool Sands.  It is a multi-day music festival set in an incredible location, allowing you to enjoy the wonders of the South West coast whilst listening to an excellent selection of music.  Keep reading to find out more and enjoy on Your Devon Escape.

Tunes on the Sands is hosted every year on the South West coast, bringing you an array of music from well-known bands and DJs alongside a silent disco.  How better to spend Your Devon Escape than enjoying live music in a beach setting.

Tunes on the Sands is a festival loved by locals and visitors alike. The multi-day event brings something for everyone, with a wellbeing area, food, drinks, and family entertainment.  Pack your beach mats and camping chairs, to sit and enjoy the music or get yourself to the front of the crowd for a day of dancing.  The festival always has an excellent line up consisting of Scouting for Girls, the Hoosiers, and Boney M.  For this year’s lineup, head to their website.

With the event being held on the beach, it brings with it lots of luxuries.  If you need to take a break from the dancing and cool off, take a dip in the refreshing waters of the beach, or sit back and relax with a bit of sunbathing, all whilst still enjoying the music.

Tickets for the event come as either day tickets or weekend tickets.  If you are around for the full event, we highly recommend booking tickets for all days; however, if you are only in town for part of it, day tickets are available.  Check out their website to book today!

Please note, despite the name, the beach is actually shingle.  This does not been it is any less idyllic.  If anything, it will stop you getting sandy whilst you boogie the day away.  Food and drink are also not allowed to be taken into the venue; however, you are allowed to pass in and out of the festival venue throughout the day if needed.  We also recommend organising transport to and from the event before the day.  You can take the local bus out to the beach; however, you will need to organise a lift or book a taxi before the day.

Located on the beautiful beach of Blackpool Sands, the crescent-shaped beach is set against an idyllic backdrop of pines and the rolling South Hams countryside.  This is a truly unique event where you can enjoy an ice-cold beverage with your feet in the sand, and the ocean only a stone’s throw away.  Blackpool Sands is located a short drive from Dartmouth and many of our properties, so why not book Your Devon Escape today and enjoy this unique event this summer!  This event is truly one to not miss.
