Solfest has revealed a huge lineup for its 2023 edition over the August bank holiday weekend, featuring The Libertines, Wilkinson, Ocean Colour Scene,  Peter Hook & The Light, and many more at North Lakes Country Park, Cumbria. 

Going down on the 24th - 27th of August 2023, Solfest has revealed indie legends The Libertines as one of their headliners. Punters can also look forward to Ocean Colour Scene, the perfect sound for a hopefully sunny festival. Wilkinson will bring unrivalled drum and bass bangers, and the legendary Peter Hook & The Light, as a founding member of both bands, will bring timeless tracks from Joy Division and New Order.


Further down the lineup, we’ve got The Undertones, The Futureheads, Hollie Cook (formerly of The Slits), Easy Star All-Stars, Dub Pistols, Dreadzone, Peat & Diesel, and many other artists spanning genres including indie, house, rock, folk, punk, jungle, reggae, drum and bass, and more across ten stages. No matter what genre you’re into, there’s certain to be something here for you! Check out the full lineup above. 

Perfect for littluns, the fest has the largest kids' area of any Cumbria festival, and workshops, activities, storytelling, and cinema to ensure kids have just as good a time as the grownups. 

Now in its 19th year, you can trust this fest to provide unparalleled fun and banging tunes in a stunning setting.
