The basics

The North-East’s newest festival, in full view of Holy Island.

The festival

Although the North East hosts many one-day and urbanised concerts, Lindisfarne Festival is the first to have the ‘proper’ experience. Camping, straw on the ground, some cool acts - What else do you need from a weekender in September?

The inaugural 2015 festival included DJ sets from Craig Charles, DJ Yoda and Adamski as well as lives sets from local talent such as Smoove & Turrell, Frankie & The Heartstrings, Hyde & Beast, & some bands without an ampersand in their names. Overlooking the mysterious landmark Holy Island, this festival is likely to grow and grow.

Other than partying to the eclectic variety of tunes until 4AM, there is much more to experience on-site such as delicious street food and well-respected alternative therapists…whatever that is. There are also opportunities to try a different kind of tipple in the shape of Lindisfarne’s famous mead, as well as the many local ales to be enjoyed. Boomting. 

Our tip

Do not under any circumstance try to cross over to the Island. The tide can come in and go out very quickly. An organised trip to Holy Island via bus or car is recommended though.



Getting there

How do I get there?

By Car

Linked to the mainland by a long causeway, Lindisfarne is a tidal island. Twice a day, as the tide sweeps in and covers the road, restricting access to the island. It is imperative that we minimize any possible disruption to the local Lindisfarne residents, who have kindly allowed us to use this amazing location for our festival. If you are arriving by car, please be respectful and try to arrive on site at the times specified below, when the causeway is inaccessible.

FRIDAY CAR ARRIVALS - Please arrive after 5:30pm

SATURDAY CAR ARRIVALS - Please arrive before 11:30am (first admission 9am for Saturday ticket holders)

DEPARTURES - The campsite closes at 3pm on Sunday 6th September, however, we ask that if travelling by car you try to depart before Midday (ensuring you are fully rested before driving).

The festival site is located at Beal Farm on the Northumberland mainland, just a few miles off the A1. Proceed along the A1 to the crossroad at Beal (approximately 8 miles South of Berwick-upon-Tweed). From there, follow the signs to Holy Island. The festival site is just yards from the Lindisfarne Causeway and car parks will be clearly sign posted.

When you plan your route to Lindisfarne Festival, please take a moment to consider the environment. If you are driving to the festival, fill your car with friends. If you can't travel with old friends, travel with new ones! Find fellow festivalgoers to car share with on our Facebook and Twitter pages or use public transport if possible.

By Train

The nearest mainline station is at Berwick-upon-Tweed on the London (Kings Cross) to Edinburgh line. A public bus service operates from the station to Holy Island, via the festival site, although the frequency varies considerably from Summer-to-Winter and according to the prevailing tide.
