What’s it all about 

It’s the last of the summer festivals in a dramatic, magical location. Visit for the day, or stay all weekend. When you’re done dancing holes in the sand, you can stroll back to your holiday cottage, hotel, B&B, caravan or grab a shuttle bus to your campsite.

What happens?

For three days in September the beautiful port of Looe in South East Cornwall delivers a big weekend of music, entertainment and culture. Unique on the festival circuit, Looe Music Festival takes place in the heart of town with the main stages on the beach and around the bustling harbour. Wherever you look there are amazing views, intoxicating music, side streets to explore, and pubs to lose a day in.

A grown-up festival with something for the entire family from folk, punk, ska, choral, classical, barbershop, jazz, hip hop and even bhangra.
