From 29th August 2019, the Lindisfarne Festival returns to the Northumberland coast at Beal Farm, which is on the mainland opposite Holy island - approximately 50 miles North of Newcastle, 8 miles South of Berwick, and 65 miles South of Edinburgh. The site has amazing views overlooking the island and the coast.
The festival will once again lay on a diverse programme of music, art and performance across four days, with something to suit everyone. The festival is for over 18s only, and if you want tickets, you must book up soon! This festival has been likened to a carnival in the past, as it is full of much more than just music.
Every type of music will be showcased here, from indie, to funk, folk, rock, reggae and dance music. There will be 10 stages, housing over 200 acts. There will be music from 7pm until midnight on Thursday night. On Friday and Saturday there will be music from approximately 11am until 4am. For example…
Woody's Bar – here you will find Blues, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Americana, Roots and Soul.
The Dub Shack – For those who love reggae music, you can witness some amazing pyro displays all to the tune of beachy bass-lines. What could be better?
DeltaCity - DeltaCity is likened to a mini festival in itself! This is the place to head if you like oldskool, jungle,hiphop, acid, house & techno.
The Inspiredome - This stage is all about Indie and Dance anthems. You might hear Tomorrowlands, The Hacienda, Madchester and Britpop all on this stage.
There will also be street performers, fancy dress competitions, fire shows, comedy and yoga. You won’t go hungry here either, as there are lots of street food outlets and bars set up.
If you are travelling by train: The closest station, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, is on the East Coast Mainline from London to Edinburgh. From here, the festival will run a free bus to the site.
If you are travelling by car: The festival site is situated a few miles of the A1, close to the Lindisfarne Causeway (which will be clearly signposted).
Tickets can be bought online via the website. They are £109 (Thurs-Sun), £95 (Fri-Sun), or £65 (Sat-Sun). However, the Super Early Bird Tickets start at just £50 so it is wise to book in advance. All of the tickets include free standard camping for 1, 2 or 3 nights. If you don’t want to camp, single day tickets are available for the Saturday only. If you want to camp but would like a quieter area to do so, this year there will be a designated 'quieter' area near the back of the camping. Space will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so you would want to arrive on Thursday or early Friday.
If you love the sound of this event, why not make it part of your holiday plans this year when you visit Northumberland? There are plenty of places to stay around the festival site if you want to lengthen your visit past four days.
