Conleth Maenpaa, Owner of Nokomis and Bor Events and Founder of Lindisfarne Festival commented, "We were completely overwhelmed by the feedback and support received for Lindisfarne Festival last year and we are working hard to build on this success for 2016. We were so proud the North East got behind us to make this happen and being shortlisted for Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards 2015 was simply the icing on the cake, giving us a real platform to grow from.
"Our plan this year is to build on what we have created, growing capacity slightly as demand increases but still retaining the cool, intimate and friendly vibe we have become renowned for. We have a few surprises up our sleeves but can’t reveal too much at this stage! We also want to encourage more first time festival goers to come along as we had quite a number who attended last year and once there wondered why they hadn’t come to one sooner.
"We are really excited by our line-up and are working hard to secure more great acts with further announcements to be made in due course. We urge people to buy their tickets early as we anticipate higher demand this year. Tier 3 tickets will be available to buy from Monday 22nd February at £85 for a weekend ticket and £50 for a Saturday ticket. We also have a buy 10 for the price of 8 offer for group bookings and all tickets include free camping.
"Our line up and information about ticket sales can be found on our facebook, twitter page and website http://www.lindisfarnefestival.com/. We hope people will join us on our journey to make this yet another truly magical event that we can be proud of."
Tickets are priced at £85 for the weekend or £50 for the Saturday.
