Win a pair of tickets to Solfest 2013
For our latest competition we are delighted to have teamed up with Solfest 2013 to offer a pair of tickets for the entire festival…2013 marks the tenth anniversary of the festival which was conceived, and remains run as a not-for-profit event – every penny of the takings gets reinvested back into the festival which continues to be run entirely by volunteers.
The ethos of the festival stems from an idea back in 2003 “People do things for all sorts of strange reasons. When we first conceived Solfest back in the summer of 2003, our aim was very simple; we wanted to create the sort of festival we thought that we would like to go to ourselves. We were all tired and disillusioned by mainstream corporate events, structured around commercial greed, which had lost sight of any notion of “community”. The plan was to create a festival where the punter came first. Not necessarily a big festival, but certainly a good one.”
In addition to the headline music acts Solfest aims to provide something for everyone, from workshops and events in the Healing Garden to activities in the Children’s Arena, and a vast array of music and performance spaces around the festival’s site
This year’s festival looks to be one of the most exciting yet; the line-up split over the three days includes Maximo Park, Flogging Molly, New Model Army, Afro Celt Sound System, Deaf School, Utah Saints, The Undertones, Bombscare, The Joy Formidable, Neck, The Roughneck Riot, and Eat Static, more acts are to be confirmed. The festival is held at Tarnside Farm approximately halfway between the towns of Aspatria and Silloth, Cumbria which boasts panoramic views across the Solway Firth taking in a backdrop of the Scottish Southern Uplands. In the opposite direction, the Main Stage is set against a backdrop of the English Lake District.
