A new North-East festival has added further acts to the bill – and you could be there for free.
Lindisfarne Festival, which will take over Beal Farm, Northumberland, overlooking Holy Island, from September 4-6, promises a bumper weekend of music and creative arts.
New acts added to the line-up, which is aimed at over 18s, includes Hyde & Beast, King Bees and Mixmaster Morris.
Northern poet, comedian, writer (and ex-resident poet at Glastonbury), Kate Fox will also be showcasing her talents in the Jibba Jabba poetry tent.
Headliners for the festival include Public Service Broadcasting, Craig Charles, Reverend & The Makers, Smoove and Turrell and The Skints.
Conleth Maenpaa, owner of Nokomis and Bor Events and founder of Lindisfarne Festival, said: “We are delighted to add further acts to our already strong line-up, many of whom played at this year’s Glastonbury Festival - Nadine Shah, DJ Yoda, Shields, JFB, Baghdaddies, Ghetto Funk Allstars and Mr Tooley to name but a few.
“It is great to be able to offer such an enviable range of talent to the North-East crowds at Lindisfarne Festival. We have a slice of Glastonbury right here in our back yard.
“We are really excited about the festival and have been working hard to create something special that we hope will become part of the fabric of the North East for years to come.
“We are pleased to confirm a variety of great entertainment including a silent disco, alternative therapies, jibba jabba poetry tent, Tibetan monks, delicious local food, a real ale bar, art installations, street performers, yoga and meditation, camping, bonfires and much more.
“From sight and sound to taste, we want this to be a truly experiential festival that people won’t forget.
“With only 2,000 tickets on sale at this year’s Lindisfarne Festival, we urge people to buy their tickets soon.
“It is strange to think that the first-ever Glastonbury started back in 1970 with just 1,500 tickets and now draws a crowd close to 200,000.
“Will you be able to say you were at the first ever Lindisfarne Festival? We hope so!”
