If like us, you live by the 'go hard or go home' mantra and want to squeeze every last drop of adventure from this year's festival - join us on our opening night as we kick off Lindisfarne Festival 2017 with a party that will go down in history - literally!
Get your hashtags ready coz this will be a #ThrowbackThursday that you'll want to rewind and re-live over and over again!
Ok, we’re not Glastonbury and we never will be. And we’ve certainly got some hugely distinct differences, such as our lack of miniature humans*. In fact, make that humans in general (given our significantly smaller capacity and the fact that we could fit our Beal Farm site into the Glasto perimeter about 100 times over).
But with the gates of the Glasto now open once again, I thought I'd take the opportunity to highlight a few of our commonalities with the mother of all UK festivals. After all, Glasto did light the spark that ignited a fire fuelled with inspiration, which led Lindisfarne Festival to where it is today...
It gives us great pleasure to announce our new partnership with one of Northumberland’s finest breweries: The Alnwick Brewery, who have made it possible for us to introduce a limited batch of tickets at a special discounted price.
The Alnwick Brewery will be sponsoring our beloved main beer tent for 2017, where in addition to our staple bar beverages, you can expect a delightful range of locally brewed beers, ales & lagers. And if beer isn’t your thing, fear not, as we'll also be stocking their much loved White Knight rum (oh hello mojitos!) and of course their infamous Lindisfarne Mead, which is sure to go down a treat!
With the very first official "Northumberland Day” just a week away, Northumberland is gearing up for a whole host of fun festivities up and down the region over the next fortnight.
As a proud representer of the Northumbrian colours, we thought we’d wave our red & yellow flag and point you in the direction of some of the fantastic events taking place across the County (and beyond)...
As a truly independent festival, we could not succeed without the ongoing and much needed support from our community. There has been a lot of personal sacrifice and much blood, sweat and tears (literally!) poured into Lindisfarne Festival since 2015 and whilst 2017 is all set to be an absolutely incredible event (by far our greatest to date) - the future of our much loved festival still hangs tentatively in the balance.
Whilst we love a damn good shindig and plenty of late night revelry, we know how important it is to have a little down time to revive your body, mind & spirit. We don't want our festivalgoers going home feeling tired & broken come Sunday. No siree! We want you all feeling elated & refreshed - having just had the most fun weekend of the year, as well a much needed escape from the daily grind.
We're sure there'll be plenty of us leaving Lindisfarne Festival in the same jeans/shorts we rocked up in! But that's ok - this ain't a fashion show: it's a god damn PARTY and we're delighted to announce that The View will be rocking the headline slot on our Friday night lineup.
Oh how time flies when you're having fun! It's exactly 19 weeks until we head back to Beal Farm to kick off the party at our third Lindisfarne Festival (and undoubtably our BEST festival yet).
As the 2017 event draws closer and closer, it's got us reminiscing! And as it's 'Throwback Thursday' we thought we'd re-share this blog from our 2015 website, which tells the tale of how our festival journey first began...
The only thing more satisfying than bagging your ticket to Lindisfarne Festival, is bagging your ticket AND winning free stuff!
Next week, we're re-launching our 'Lindisfarne Lottery', giving everyone who buys their Linisfarne Festival ticket a chance to not only attend the best party weekend of the year, but also a chance to win a whole host of other great prizes**
