Elevation 593 Festival
August 4, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 pm UTC+0£19
It seems that anyone who’s anyone these days has their own music festival. And a group of Devonians felt it was high time that the north end of their great county joined the festival crowd. So, they found the highest point in North Devon that they could get to – and with it being 593 feet above mean sea level, ELEVATION 593 was born.
ELEVATION 593 is the result of a creative idea from local people with a passion for a party who have teamed up with Torrington’s nationally renowned Plough Arts Centre. The creative people at The Plough Arts Centre love a good party and have been involved in producing both in-house and outdoor music events for years now, including booking great names like Ruby Turner, Midge Ure, Andy Fairweather Low, Fairport Convention, Judie Tzuke and T’Pau, to name a few.
The idea behind Elevation 593 is to establish an exciting, new family event on the North Devon calendar during the Summer. Their first year was a cosy affair, closing with an amazing sound & light show from PINK FLOYD Tribute Act THE DARKNESS but things heated up in year two with the fabulous MUNGO JERRY headlining. Year Three sees some amazing local and wider reaching acts coming to the area, with MAD DOG MCRAE headlining and the amazing SAM GREEN & THE MIDNIGHT HEIST and NUMB, to name only three.
The team look forward to seeing you there
