Unsigned Band Competition - Meet the Winners!

Lindisfarne Festival by

We've had hundreds of entries and thousands of votes but there can only be one winner. The people have spoken and with a whopping 47% of the public vote, the winner of our unsigned band competition is (drum roll....) THE WINACHI TRIBE!

Thank you to everyone who voted and supported our five fantastic finalists and helped spread the word about the Musicians Against Homelessness campaign. It was a tough competition and we're certainly glad we didn't have to make the deciding vote.

Lindisfarne Festival by

Wow! There has been so many great entries submitted from brilliant up & coming bands from around the UK. From the tip of Scotland to the deep, deep South - we've absolutely loved checking out all the nominated bands and we'll certainly be baring many in mind for our lineup in future years of Lindisfarne Festival. However, there can only be one winner for our 2017 unsigned band competition and the decision is out of our hands.

Who will will a slot on the main stage of Lindisfarne Festival 2017? The finalists have been chosen (by Musicians Against Homelessness patron Alan McGee)!

The North East's Hottest Summer Events

Danielle Young by

The North East summer might be lacking a bit of sunshine right now, but what it’s certainly not lacking is a top notch calendar of incredible events - topped off of course by the ultimate end-of-summer party festival at Beal Farm, which is gonna be here before we know it. In less than 5 weeks, we’ll be opening the gates of Lindisfarne Festival 2017 and you better hold on to your viking hats as with a load of new features (like the ‘almost’ Full Moon Party and our fully loaded Lindie Disco) we’re set to unveil the best festival the North East has ever seen!!

But you wouldn’t start a workout without first warming up your muscles and we wouldn’t want you to dive in to the festival, without full preparing yourself for the shenanigans. So why not go get yourself warmed up for the main action by checking out some of these fantastic events taking place between now and the end of August… I’ve been told Mr Sunshine has already RSVP’ed to them all ;-)

It's beginning to look a lot like Glastonbury!

Danielle Young by

Ok, we’re not Glastonbury and we never will be. And we’ve certainly got some hugely distinct differences, such as our lack of miniature humans*. In fact, make that humans in general (given our significantly smaller capacity and the fact that we could fit our Beal Farm site into the Glasto perimeter about 100 times over).

But with the gates of the Glasto now open once again, I thought I'd take the opportunity to highlight a few of our commonalities with the mother of all UK festivals. After all, Glasto did light the spark that ignited a fire fuelled with inspiration, which led Lindisfarne Festival to where it is today...

Three cheers for our new sponsor

Lindisfarne Festival by

It gives us great pleasure to announce our new partnership with one of Northumberland’s finest breweries: The Alnwick Brewery, who have made it possible for us to introduce a limited batch of tickets at a special discounted price.

The Alnwick Brewery will be sponsoring our beloved main beer tent for 2017, where in addition to our staple bar beverages, you can expect a delightful range of locally brewed beers, ales & lagers. And if beer isn’t your thing, fear not, as we'll also be stocking their much loved White Knight rum (oh hello mojitos!) and of course their infamous Lindisfarne Mead, which is sure to go down a treat!
