You'll find well-known names from the mainstream at festivals such as Beautiful DaysMTV Crashes Plymouth and GoldCoast Oceanfest. Visit Sidmouth Folk WeekDartmoor Folk FestivalFoxy Folk or Teignmouth Folk Festival and you’ll be treated to some of the best in British folk, set in idyllic surroundings.

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.
