About Us

The legend of the Grinagog runs deep in Devon. With hundreds of sightings off the coast of Torquay, conspiracy theorists and cult followers alike agree that this ancient sea creature and the associated tidal wave of live music, DJs and inspiration will arrive back on our shores in April 2018.

We invite you to start the festival season in style. Join us as we beckon the Grinagog from the 20-22 April 2018 at a music and arts festival that celebrates creativity, diversity and hi-jinks.

Set amongst Torquay’s breathtaking coastline and centred around the 800-year-old grounds of Torre Abbey; this is a place to immerse yourself in genre defining music, mind-blowing arts and memorable performances.

Led by Torquay's, DJ Chris Tofu (an MBE recipient no less!), and the award winning Continental Drifts (curators at Glastonbury's Shangri-La, Boomtown's Ballroom Stage, and Bestival's Caravanserai) - come discover a weekend of escapism from the humdrum of every day life. 

This festival is small yet mighty! Giving more colourful and creative experiences for festival goers, inspiring the next generation of local talent and making us all a little more proud of the place we call home. 

Experience something new. Discover mudless intimate indoor stages. Run free by the sea. Meet old friends, make new ones. Share a smile and know that you will make memories like no others with a weekend at Grinagog Festival.
