Solfest Solfest


Solfest is the definitive festival for music-hungry families.

Welcoming, inclusive, inventive and jam-packed with carefully selected chart-topping acts from across the decades, it’s one of North England’s best-kept and beautiful festival secrets with a stunning family area, workshops and five stages packed with music.

Its unique setting allows you to park right next to your tent for the most effortless camping experience, while wood for campfires is free for that authentic outdoor experience.

The particularly family-friendly event, held in August and on the edge of the Lake District, is one of the more wonderful British music festivals between the Solway coast and the Cumbrian Fells. It offers a very open-minded and all-welcoming atmosphere for fans of music and the great outdoors, with a quality music programme incorporating classic guitar noise, pleasing new beats, and eclectically satisfying melodies.
