The curators of Tunes In The Dunes are holding a unique festival on one of the county’s most loved beaches this summer. Over the 12th to the 14th of July, Tunes are bringing national and international artists to the beautiful Blackpool Sands beach in Devon.

This year Tunes on the Sands will welcome KT Tunstall, Wet Wet Wet, Hoosiers, UB40, Natty, The Proclaimers, Newton Faulkner, as well as local artists. The festival goes beyond the tunes, with a gin bar for gin lovers, a beach clean up event lead by Surfers Against Sewage, kayaking and SUPping, children’s beach activities, silent disco, plus much more. Tunes on the Sands is family-friendly and welcomes revellers of all ages, for a magical long weekend on South Devon’s idyllic stretch of coastline.


Due to limited campsite availability, Tunes On The Sands are offering a ticket option for campers and camper vans. There is a field situated at the top of the hill with beautiful views overlooking Blackpool Sands beach, which is a 10 minute walk, or a short shuttle bus ride down the hill. Campsite tickets can now be purchased per person, plus the usual fee for entrance to the festival.

Environmental Ethics

Tunes On The Sands is committed to being a festival free from single-use plastics. Festival goers will be able to enjoy beverages from reusable cups to ensure unnecessary waste. Paper straws will be available, along with reusable coffee mugs and reusable water bottles which will be available to purchase. Food traders will only be allowed to use Vegwear in the efforts to eradicate plastic from the site.

Tunes On The Sands will work closely with Surfers Against Sewage, by running a beach clean up event and by raising awareness among the community through the successful ‘Final Straw’ and ‘No Butts On The Beach’ campaigns. The curators of Tunes In The Dunes work hard throughout the year to keep Perranporth beach clean, with a sleeves up approach towards tackling the plastic pollution problem. Tunes On The Sands will have an equally proactive approach to keeping Blackpool Sands as clean and plastic free as possible.

The hashtag #PlasticFreeTunes will be used across all social platforms to raise awareness and inspire action among Tunes On The Sands festival goers.

Day tickets start at £38 and can be bought from the Tunes on the Sands website.
