The first ever Grinagog Festival takes place in Torquay this April 7th-9th with the line up including rising star at the cutting edge of Garage - Flava D.
PLUS they have a festival exclusive with Árni Hjorvar (bassist for The Vaccines) showcasing his solo project! Is it Woozy Sci-Fi Popicana? Depresso Tropicana? It’s sound that grew out of endless days The Vaccines’ bassist spent in his junkyard of a studio, a place full of off-brand organs, ‘80s synths and a laissez-faire approach to creation. Think Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits in a Hawaiian shirt and you can’t go wrong...
For it’s very first year, Grinagog will feature a myriad of musical genres represented across 15 stages, ranging from the stunning historical 12th century Torre Abbey to bustling harbourside nightclubs and rock venues with over 200 live bands, solo artists and DJs . With a “No Mud Guarantee”, palm trees a plenty and adventures big and small; get ready to escape the humdrum with Grinagog in Torquay against the backdrop of the stunning English Rivieria.
