SunflowerFest 2011

sunflowerfestIf you’re wondering what to get up to why not head up to Hillsborough and go to Sunflowerfest 2011.

It’s a three day festival of music, art held at Tubby’s Farm – 31 Cabra Road, Hillsborough (not far from both Lisburn and Belfast) from now til Sunday. It’s a family friendly event and music started 30 minutes ago.. Check out http://www.sunflowerfest.co.uk

There’s plenty for everyone – an eclectic mix of Rock, Alternative, Acoustic, Pop, Dance, World Music, Punk, Ska, Traditional, Funk, Soul, Gospel, Metal, Hip Hop, Americana, Reggae, Rockabilly, Celtic Fusion and Folk……phew! There is also a Reggae Corner and a Comedy Tent, as well as a dedicated Kids Zone.

Here’s the blurb:

This is our 2nd year of the Fest – last year was a blast – we hope you can join us for the whole weekend (with camping), but if not, just pick your favourite day and join us then!

Tickets are on sale though the website – and at HMV, The Rusty Zip and The Belfast Welcome Centre (Belfast) and HMV and Molly’s Parlour (Lisburn)…and also the NITB office in Hillsborough. Both weekend and single day tickets are available – with the weekend camping ticket being our best value offer – £45 for the weekend, working out at £15 per day, including camping! You can also camp for one night only if you wish – just £5 extra per person when you present your day ticket.
