Want one last blast of summer this weekend? Transport yourself to the mystical delights of Lindisfarne Festival on the medieval island that time forgot.
The history of The Holy Island of Lindisfarne dates back to the 6th century and was home to a monastery before its destruction by Viking raiders a few hundred years later, (made famous by the hit series ‘Vikings’). The site was re-established after the Norman conquest in the 11th century. It is currently managed by the National Trust and is a site still used for pilgrimages and tourists.
Lindisfarne Festival boasts an impressive line-up of an immense jumble of genres, with headliners Primal Scream and Pendulum set to be huge. The Shorefields main stage will be full of feel-good tunes whilst the Viking Brew House will have something a little heavier (it’s also home to the famous Lindisfarne Mead). The Temple is home to all things rave, with a non-stop party and the Dubshack will have awesome pyro displays and the mellow sounds of reggae floating through the air. Feeling like a laugh? The Dingle Dell is home to all things funny with stand-up comedy and whimsical song and dance.
There is plenty more to do that just party. Yoga and mindfulness classes are available in the Shanti Bee Healing Area, available to all attendees no matter your knowledge or skill level. Holistic therapies including Reiki, massages and even tarot readings will also be available in the Shanti Bee Healing Area to enjoy. The perfect way to relax after dancing around to some of the brilliant music sets at one of the stages.
There is plenty to do at Lindisfarne Festival no matter your interests, making this unique and welcoming festival the perfect way to end your summer partying.
