Festival fave returns!
The Lindisfarne Festival has only been up and running since 2015, but it’s now so firmly part of my life that I can’t imagine a summer without it. They have an eclectic a line-up as ever this year and Ocean Colour Scene (pictured), Pete Doherty, Goldie and DJ Yoda will all be lighting up their 10+ stages. Other acts to look out for include Gentlemen’s Dub Club, The Showhawk Duo, Ragga Twins and – it’s about time! – Lindisfarne themselves. Local faves such as Smoove & Turrell and The Baghdaddies will also be in full on party-starting mode, while away from the music you can enjoy comedy, spoken word, conspiracy talks, workshops, holistic therapies and more. Add in the best vibes (and best views) you’ll find anywhere in the north-east and you’ll know that this year’s bash is going to be just as amazing as ever.Lindisfarne Festival, 29 August-1 September, Beal Farm, Northumberland. lindisfarnefestival.com
