If you enjoy live music, then be sure to make a note of some of the best music festivals Devon has to offer.
The choice of music is as broad as the number of events on offer, and many are family-friendly. You'll find well-known names from the mainstream at festivals such as Beautiful Days, MTV Crashes Plymouth and GoldCoast Oceanfest. Visit Sidmouth Folk Week, Dartmoor Folk Festival, Foxy Folk or Teignmouth Folk Festival and you’ll be treated to some of the best in British folk, set in idyllic surroundings. Or for something really different - and great fun - try Bicton Fest, Dart Music Festival or Glas-Denbury.
Then in addition to these, you'll find up-and-coming bands and local musicians performing at smaller festivals and gigs across Devon every weekend. Thanks to its very active music scene, Devon has put itself firmly on the map and is drawing some of the most respected performers in the UK.
