About Solfest

Drum n Bass
World Music

Cumbria’s brightest and best music and arts festival, Solfest returns with another delightfully diverse and exciting range of artists who will grace the stage and have you up and dancing this summer.

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 mainstage don't drown out the voices of the hidden gems.

Solfest is all about eclecticism and although nothing shouts that 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!

Solfest is founded on the idea that what truly makes a festival great is the crowd... That's right, YOU. You are the driving force and over the years they've been proud to see that the spirit of inclusion they strive for has not been lost to the Solfest community. Punks and ravers, grannies and toddlers, whoever you are or wherever you're from, Solfest has something for you. The fans own Solfest, whether you're a musician looking to play, a performer looking to show off your skills, an artist keen to help make the space come alive or you're simply looking for somewhere to dance, your collaboration defines the festival.

Solfest returns for its 20th Anniversary at North Lakes Country Park, with a whole host of surprises down memory lane!
