Tunes on the Sands

On 12th July 2024 to 13th July 2024

Born out of the incredible festival "Tunes in the Dunes" on Perranporth beach in Cornwall (that has seen artists such as Status Quo, John Newman, UB40 ft Ali, Astro & Mickey, Clean Bandit, Dizzee Rascal, the Waterboys, James Morrison, Billy Ocean + many more). This is a one of a kind event for Blackpool Sands in Devon and not to be missed.The event will take place in late July with camping provided. Major headline acts will be getting announced over the lead up to the event (but whisper it, Sister Sledge are among them). The ultimate festival experience.

Back to What's on


  • Harry Potteresque - Once on the platform we boarded the train (covid restrictions applied) and stepped back in time and themes of Harry Potters Hogwarts express sprang to mind! Brilliant!
  • Trip back in time - What a fantastic experience. The train ride from Paignton is a gentle trip with stunning views. Arriving in Kingswear you can almost imagine how people in days gone by must have felt. A short ferry ride takes you into Dartmouth which is a stunning little town.
  • All lovely - All done very well. Everything clean (train/boats), staff friendly and commentary on the river cruise added a bit of fun. Really good day out, lots of families. Take hats, drinks and dogs! If you have one.
