It’s the last of the summer festivals in a dramatic, magical location. Visit for the day, 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 the local campsites.

For three days in September the little town of Looe in South East Cornwall gets hit with big music, manic entertainment and a smattering of culture for good measure. The festival pops up from nowhere to transform the beach and the streets, giving locals & visitors from all over the world a chance to mingle and enjoy the show. Everywhere is the venue, everybody’s welcome to the party. And every year, we try to push it one step further.

You won’t find lazy, Sunday summer grooves at Looe Music Festival. Expect an eclectic mix of high energy ‘keep you on the move’ music, delivered back-to-back from either end of the beach and around the harbour plus acts on every street corner, and in every bar and restaurant.

For a new festival, LMF has attracted big names from the start. 2013 saw The Darkness, Reef, Seth Lakeman, Chas & Dave, The Damned, and Missing Andy. 2012 welcomed The Stranglers, Levellers, The Skints & Showaddywaddy and even in our very first year we persuaded Roy Wood, Adrian Edmonson, The Selecter and From the Jam to the party. The headliners are always backed by 100+ local, national & international acts from singer songwriters and folk through to hip hop, indie, funk & punk. 2014 is building up to be a can’t-miss line up.
