Set in picturesque Devon, South West England, Beautiful Days takes place in the grounds of Escot Park Estate. The festival, which is currently in its 9th year, is organised by The Levellers who also close the festival every year on the main stage. Past acts have included British Sea Power, The Pogues, Seth Lakeman, Supergrass and KT Tunstall, and this year (2011) there is Gogol Bordello, I Am Kloot, Kissy Sell Out, Gentleman's Dub Club as well as comedy from Tim Minchin to play to 12,500 music fans.
Beautiful Days Festival has an intimate, grass roots feel that is relayed in both the festival goers wanting an informal experience, and not having any sponsorship or corporate branding.
The festival takes place in late August.
