Written by Lindisfarne Festival
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.
With no real outside funding, we rely almost 100% on ticket sales to be able to pull this all together and put on the most fun weekend of the year. We've had a great run so far, with Early Bird tickets for Lindisfarne Festival 2017 selling out in record time and our advanced priced tickets proving to be exceptionally popular. If we keep things up, we can almost guarantee we'll hit capacity come the end of August. But if we want to remove the question marks that hang precariously over 2018 and GUARANTEE the sustainability and growth of the festival for future years - we still need your help!
So if you want to see the North East thrive with a festival to rival those around the rest of the UK - please get behind us and continue your support.
6 ways you can get involved & support Lindisfarne Festival:
- Become an ambassador
Sell tickets to 5 of your friends and you can come for free! By joining our ambassador platform you can earn great rewards such as free drinks, free merch & even cash!
- Sign up as a volunteer
The festival couldn't run without an amazing team of volunteers. Exchange your time during the festival in exchange for free entry and plenty of time off to enjoy all the great music & entertainment!
- Spread the word!
Tell all your friends, and tell them to tell their friends. Like, share, follow, tweet, retweet, regram - every little helps! Word of mouth is our most powerful tool, so whether it's Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, or down your local pub, on the school run or at the gym. Keep spreading the word! And make sure you RSVP to our Facebook event - just click on the link & hit "I'm interested" or "I'm going"
- Get tickets!
There's no better way to show your support than purchasing a ticket, coming to the festival and having a damn good time. We're going to a lot of effort to make this another weekend to remember - so round up your mates, get your tickets and come join us for the best weekend of the year!
Thank you once again to everyone who has gotten behind us so far. We are grateful everyday for your continued love & support and we truly can't wait to reward you all with a spectacular weekend when we open our festival gates for the third time on 31st August.
Our time is now...
