A new music and creative arts festival for over 18s taking place on Beal Farm Northumberland this September 4th - 6th has revealed its Friday evening headliner as critically acclaimed group, Public Service Broadcasting. Adamski has also been added to the Saturday line-up alongside house music DJ Glen Horsborough and local Berwick act, Roy’s Iron DNA. North East band The Baghdaddies will also be playing on the Friday evening.
The festival will showcase a range of internationally renowned artists, as well as a selection of up and coming acts and North East talent. Headliners will also include Reverend and The Makers, Craig Charles, DJ Yoda, Smoove and Turrell and The Skints.
Conleth Maenpaa, Owner of Nokomis and Bor Events and Founder of Lindisfarne Festival commented:
“We are delighted to add the critically acclaimed Public Service Broadcasting to our line-up alongside our other great acts. With a number of sell out shows across the UK including one in Newcastle, and after receiving rave reviews at the BBC 6 Music Festival 2015, it’s great to be able to give their fans an opportunity to see them again in the North East.We feel they will add something really unique to the festival with their spell-binding live AV transmissions and the way they powerfully convey lessons of the past through the music of the future. They have a really distinctive sound, weaving samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material around live drums, guitar, banjo and electronics.”
Conleth Maenpaa added:
“We are also delighted to have the legendary Adamski on board who will be playing his new genre of music to the crowds. Most famous for his collaboration with Seal on ‘Killer’ and track N.R.G, Adamski will be showcasing his new sound which merges acid house, trip hop, minimalist techno with waltz music (rebranded as 'three step').”
Whilst the heart of any festival is the music, 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. Announcements about entertainment, refreshments and suppliers will be made over the coming months but to date include a Silent Disco hosted by company Hedfone Party, poetry readings and a real ale bar stocking local supplies from Hadrian Border Brewery, Tyne Bank Brewery and many more.
Set within 4 different marquees opposite the Holy Island, entertainment will be on offer from the Friday evening, all day Saturday and into the early hours of Sunday. Capacity in each marquee is limited so the festival team are advising to get there early if there is a particular act people want to see.
Tickets which include camping are available to buy online at £78 for the weekend or £50 for the Saturday via http://www.lindisfarnefestival.com/. It is recommended to book early to avoid disappointment as tickets are limited this year.
