Solfest returns this August with another great line-up of music, fun and entertainment for the whole family.
Springing up annually like a wild flower in the Cumbrian meadows, Solfest has evolved continually since its inception in 2003, transitioning from a local shindig into one of the UK’s best loved independent festivals.
Run by a dedicated team and a small army of volunteers, Solfest has stayed true to its anti-corporate roots. This means that art and decor take the place of ubiquitous advertising and the international big names on the mainstage don’t drown out the voices of the hidden gems.
Solfest is all about eclecticism, with handpicked line-ups spanning a huge range of genres and eras. A broad group of very talented people come together each year to create an immersive environment with everything from a creative kid’s area, to an array of interactive site art and even a Healing Garden where you can meditate, do some Yoga or participate in a Shamanic ritual!
Solfest is founded on the idea that what truly makes a festival great is the crowd… Punks and ravers, grannies and toddlers, whoever you are or wherever you’re from, Solfest has something for you.
Solfest is family friendly, and has a huge variety of activities for children to enjoy. The kids arena runs all kinds of classes, including arts & crafts, wood carving, circus, music workshops and more.
