Conleth Maenpaa, Owner of Nokomis and Bor Events and Founder of Lindisfarne Festival commented, "We are delighted to have secured a fantastic line up for our 2nd year and to be able to announce the critically acclaimed British Sea Power as our Friday headliner. Famous for their live performances we know they will do a great job in getting the Lindisfarne Festival party started. We are also excited to add the brilliantly talented Fatherson to our line-up and also to welcome back house DJ Glen Horsborough who will be playing host to our dance marquee.
"We really do feel our festival offers something for everyone. With critically acclaimed artists across the musical spectrum alongside a range of creative arts, Lindisfarne Festival serves up a real cultural experience, all enveloped in a unique and beautiful setting overlooking Holy Island. It’s hard to encapsulate the vibe of Lindisfarne Festival if you haven’t been before but there was certainly something magical about it last year. We hope people will join us once again to make this a weekend to remember, let their hair down and create special memories with friends and family that they can treasure for years to come. Our aim is to build on last year’s event, making 2016 even bigger and better and we have a few surprises in store to make it just that."
Tickets are priced at £85 for the weekend or £50 for the Saturday.
The Lindisfarne Festival is an intimate 2 day camping festival with a capacity for 2000. The event promises to have something for everyone and includes music from indie rock, soul and funk, blues, folk and jazz to hip hop.
