Solfest is a national festival with a local feel; we want to make sure that each act that performs for you at the festival gets the same wonderful lovely treatment and attention no matter how big or small they are. We enjoy bringing you some well known names, local artists, performers from around the world and those breaking through and striving to 'make it'.
We want you to enjoy the whole of the Solfest experience which is why we don't publish our programme of events prior to the festival starting. To get you excited in the build up to the festival we'll tell you who is performing but never when!
We believe that there are too many festivals where tickets are sold for what is, in effect, individual gigs/sessions and that this encourages visitors to "cherry-pick" the big name acts without supporting the festival as a whole, often leaving insufficient tickets left for people who want to stay for the duration of the festival. We want you to come and experience the whole event, not just one day!
We also firmly believe that the amazing atmosphere found at really good festivals usually is not only created by the music but is a product of the shared experience of thousands of people, from very different walks of life, forming a community, and living together in a single place for a weekend which generates something very special. Organisers do not create festivals; they are created by the people who support them.
For these reasons, we are not releasing a detailed list of exactly when each act will perform or selling tickets for individual sessions.
We believe that by having a great line-up and by making our tickets among the best value available for any festival this summer, we can ensure that people will want to stay for the whole weekend and by doing so, contribute to making Solfest a fantastic experience for everyone!
