Conleth Maenpa, founder of Lindisfarne, commented on the announcement:

"We're absolutely thrilled with our line up and the way things are shaping up for the festival this summer. We really are going all out to give the people what they want. People asked for the Levellers to headline - we're giving them the Levellers! They asked for more blues music, more ska and more fun party bands - we're giving them all that and more - way, way more!

"With the input from an amazing team of creatives, plus all the positive feedback from people who have attended in previous years, Lindisfarne Festival is constantly evolving and growing organically. This year we're adding a new Blues tent called Woody's, which will host some of the region's best Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, Americana, Roots and Soul musicians such as Rob Heron, The King Bees and No Time For Jive. We've also got a quirky outdoor Dubshack that will be churning out reggae & dub beats from a shipwrecked boat! Festivalgoers really will be spoilt for choice when it comes to getting their music fix."

The festival has also announced a number of its food vendors, including Fat Hippo Burgers, Streetzzeria Pizza, Mivesi Indian, Spud Gun Loaded Fries, Nom Nam Asian Street Food, The Beat-Root Cafe, and Ouseburn Coffee Company.
