Written by Lindisfarne Festival
We've got the most stunning festival location, a 3 year track record of pulling together an absolutely belting lineup and (without blowing our own trumpet too much) we're becoming somewhat renowned for putting on the best end-of-summer party festival! But if that's not enough to convince you to book the days off work and call in the babysitter just yet, then here's a few other good reasons why you should MUST make that commitment and book your Lindisfarne Festival tickets in advance for 2018...
You get cheaper festival tickets
The early bird catches the worm so they say - and it's no different with our festival tickets. If you pledge to buy your 2018 Lindisfarne Festival tickets via Crowdfunder before 31st October, you'll get access to some of the cheapest tickets around! Starting at as little as £45 for a ticket (that's with camping included!) there's no booking fees to pay either, so they're even cheaper than last year!
You get exclusive deals...
... like our Boozy Weekend & All-Inclusive Packages! In addition to cheaper festival tickets, you can save even more money by choosing one of our fantastic ticket, food & drink packages. There certainly aren't many festivals around where you can get your hands on a £3 pint, that's for sure.
You pay nothing until 31st October
You can reserve your ticket today at the absolute best price, but you won't need to pay a penny until our Crowdfunder successfully closes at the end of October. That means you can bank at least two more paydays before the ticket money comes out of your account. So what are you waiting for... it literally costs NOTHING to secure your festival ticket today
You get a better festival lineup
The more tickets we sell early, the more of a budget we have when it comes to securing our headliners and the rest of 2018 lineup. We've got our eye on some absolutely incredible acts but we can't make those bookings without the funds to pay the deposits. So if you want an even better lineup for Lindisfarne Festival 2018, make your pledge to buy your ticket and then be sure to let us know who you want to see on those 2018 lineup posters. With your help, we can make it our strongest lineup yet!
You help save the festival!
It costs a significant amount of money (a lot of which has to be invested up front) to make the festival happen, which is why we're crowdfunding for 2018. If we can't hit the £70k target of our Crowdfunder campaign by 31st October, we won't be able to secure our location, book our lineup or invest in all the other things that make Lindisfarne Festival such an utterly incredible weekend. Without your help & support, the festival sadly won't happen in 2018. This would be heartbreaking for us and our team of wonderful volunteers who have put their hearts and souls into the last few years to create an amazing festival for the North East. It will also be very sad news for all the musicians, artists, traders and other folk who gain great opportunities through the festival. Then there are all our lovely festivalgoers, who have grown to love our little Lindisfarne Fest just as much as we do. We do not want to disappoint anyone and we do not want to let something so magical just slip away from us all. Pledging to buy your 2018 ticket early, literally could SAVE THE FESTIVAL! Every pledge takes us one step closer to smashing that target and putting on the festival we all deserve.
You make a difference!
Every single person who supports Lindisfarne Festival makes a real difference. Not only to the festival itself, but to our community. This is a festival by the people, for the people and we are on a mission to make a real difference not only in our world, but in the wider world - far beyond our North East borders. By purchasing a ticket to the festival, you become a part of our greater mission. You help us to shine a spotlight on talent, support those in need, encourage exploration of the extraordinary and celebrate some of life’s greatest treasures: music, art, nature and above all else - people! In 2017 the festival supported some great causes such as Inspired Support, Surfers Against Sewage and Musicians Against Homelessness, and together we can continue to do good in 2018 and make a positive impact in the world.
"Lindisfarne festival is a unique, gem of a truly independent festival. It’s what small festivals should be about; fun, togetherness, music and expression and what’s more Lindisfarne Festival is set is an area of Outstanding natural beauty. The festival supports many charities including working closely Musicians Against Homelessness which is a charity close to my heart. The region needs Lindisfarne Festival and I urge you to get behind them in their crowdfunding campaign as something so beautiful needs support too." - Alan McGee (Former Oasis Manager & MAH Patron)
Finally... You can't lose!
If you pledge money to us for a festival ticket or other Crowdfunder reward and enough people do the same within our 6 week time limit, we will reach our crowdfunding target and Lindisfarne Festival 2018 will be full speed ahead and on track for it's BEST year yet. Woo hoo! But in the very highly unlikely event the festival is cancelled it is our duty to refund your pledge, meaning it's a totally risk-free win-win for you. The only way you might lose, is if you don't support our Crowdfunder! Because not only will you miss out on the best tickets and deals, we all might miss out on the festival all together. Let's not let that happen...
