Always a highlight on the festival calendar, Lindisfarne Festival takes place at Beal Farm on the beautiful Northumberland coast from Thursday 31st August-Sunday 3rd September. The announcement today of legendary Scottish rockers Primal Scream heading up Friday night’s line-up will no doubt see a surge for tickets.

Lindisfarne Festival founder, Conleth Maenpaa, said he was delighted to have finally been able to book the band. He said: “Primal Scream are a band we’ve had in our sights for a long time, so it’s a real thrill to be able to unveil them at the top of our Friday night bill for this year’s festival. They’re a perfect fit for Lindisfarne and are renowned all over the world for their live shows. We know it’s going to be unforgettable and can’t wait to see them rocking the main stage.”

The supporting cast is pretty great too, including the likes of British Dub stars Gentleman’s Dub Club, folk music queen Kathryn Tickell And The Darkening, The Cuban Brothers, Dutty Moonshine Big Band, Altern-8, The Lancashire Hotpots, The Undercover Hippy and The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican, with many more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Alongside the music, there is always a diverse programme of creative workshops, stand-up comedy, street performance, spoken word, yoga and holistic therapies on offer as well as luxury glamping packages.

Tickets for the festival are on sale now, priced from £115 including camping.
