Solfest 2017, Cumbria Friday 25th August 2017 - Saturday 26th August 2017 tickets:
Cumbria’s brightest and best music and arts festival, Solfest returns for 2017 with another delightfully diverse and exciting range of artists who will grace the stage and have you up and dancing this summer.
As ever Solfest offers a dazzling array of entertainment across practically every musical genre. If you don’t hear something that you like move along to another venue and try another taste of the Solfest experience. And we have stages galore including Drystone Stage, The Solway Bar, Unity Sessions, Lost’n’Found, Loungevity, The Love Shack, House Of Joy, Melodrome and Stylus featuring everything from folk to house, hip-hop to reggae, dub to soul, ska to Afrobeat…You get the picture?
Springing up annually like a wild flower in the Cumbrian meadows, Solfest has evolved continually since its inception in 2003, transitioning from a local shindig, into one of the best loved of the UK?s independent festivals.
Run by a dedicated team and a small army of volunteers, Solfest has stayed true to its anti-corporate roots. This means that art and decor take the place of ubiquitous advertising and the international big names on the main stage don?t drown out the voices of the hidden gems.
Solfest is all about eclecticism and although nothing shouts this louder than their handpicked line-ups, spanning genres and eras of music, that most certainly isn?t where it stops. A broad group of very talented people come together each year at Solfest, to create an immersive environment with everything from a creative kid?s area, to an array of interactive site art and even a Healing Garden where you can meditate, do some Yoga or participate in a Shamanic ritual.
