The wonderful Lindisfarne Festival returns from 29 August-1 September. Woo hoo! Fancy being in with a chance of trousering two full weekend passes? Read on…

The Lindisfarne Festival is not only one of our favourite festivals in the north-east, it’s one of our favourite festivals anywhere. Situated on Beal Farm in Northumberland – overlooking Holy Island – it’s now in its fifth year and, as ever, they’ve pulled in a diverse and exciting line up. There are 200+ acts appearing this year, over 10 stages, with just about every genre you could imagine represented. Among the headliners you’ll find Ocean Colour Scene, Pete Doherty + the Puta Madres and Goldie (there are plenty of DJs appearing). Elsewhere we’re looking forward to checking out The Showhawk Duo, Ragga Twins, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Smoove & Turrell, Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra and Louise Distress.

WIN: We’ve got two full weekend passes and you can nab them if you can tell us the name of the band Pete Doherty was in with Carl Barat. Email your answer to info@thecrackmagazine.com (put ‘Lindisfarne comp’ in the subject heading).
