First Wave Of Wavelength Spring Classic Music Acts Announced 

Nick Mulvey is the first headliner to be announced for the Wavelength Spring Classic 2024, with the festival returning to Woolacombe Bay in the North Devon World Surf Reserve.

Following on from sold out dates for his ‘First Mind 10th-Anniversary Tour’, Nick will be joined by legendary broadcaster, DJ and record label owner, Gilles Peterson, Australian three-piece Sons of the East and festival legend Newton Faulkner, to provide the perfect post-surf soundtrack.

After dark, Stanton Warriors and A.Skillz will start the party, with Indian Man coming back with the task of making the Wavelength Tent bounce even higher than it did in 2023. And that’s just the start, the next wave of music acts is stacking up, with two more headliners waiting to drop into a packed lineup.

Tier One Tickets are on sale now, for a four day celebration of the great outdoors with more surfing, nature, cold water swims, yoga and firepit feast options in the 2024 programme. Imagine corduroy lines marching into the bay, fuelling ocean-minded escapism.

It wouldn’t be a Wavelength party without a motley crew of the UK’s best surfers in tow for the Wavelength Surf Invitational. After two years of waves giving the longboarders the edge, surely third time’s a charm for some waves that give the shortboarders something to be excited about?

Whatever the conditions, the format remains the same; a collection of retro boards dished out at random, with the surfer having the most fun taking the glory. Harry Timson, Emily Currie, Mike Lay and Sam Bleakley are among the surfers to watchout for, both in the water and on the dancefloor.

There’ll be shuttle buses running all day for attendees to get down to the comp site or in the water themselves. Bring your board, and it’ll be caddied up and down to the beach for you or book a surf lesson if you’re just starting out.

Next year will also see the introduction of a new Blue Earth Stage, playing host to a hand-picked selection of speakers from our sister event, the Blue Earth Summit. They’ll be joining us in North Devon to host talks, panels and workshops on key issues around biodiversity, oceans, coastlines, rivers, land, food, sport and climate.

This new corner of the festival will transform ocean-minded escapism into ocean-minded activism, with our first wave of speakers including Hugo Tagholm from Oceana, Sophie Hellyer and Finisterre founder, Tom Kay. 

All of this is underpinned by our belief that festivals can do better than leave no trace, creating a positive impact on both mindset and environment. 

Since launching the festival in partnership with the National Trust, together we’ve planted over 6000 trees and 30 hectares of wildflower meadows at the site. 

A proportion of revenue from every ticket sold goes towards continuing these projects for years to come, so you know the good times don’t stop once the festival gates close.
