Conleth Maenpaa, Owner of Nokomis and Bor Events and Founder of Lindisfarne Festival commented:   

“We are delighted with the artists we have managed to secure for our inaugural Lindisfarne Festival. Being in its first year it was important that we started off small to create an intimate setting, whilst securing a range of credible acts and entertainment. We feel we have something for everyone. A great combination of internationally renowned performers as well as a range of up and coming artists too. It was also very important that we secured a good concentration of acts from the North East, showcasing the amazing breadth of local talent we have here and capturing a strong regional flavour.”

Conleth Maenpaa added:

“Whilst the heart of any festival is the music, it is important to add that Lindisfarne Festival aims to be so much more with a range of creative therapies, wonderful gastronomy and the breath-taking back drop of Holy Island. We do hope people will join us in making this an event to remember and one that will become part of the fabric of the North East for years to come.”
