The Solfest 2011 line-up will be announced in the spring, though previous acts to appear include The Charlatans, James, The Wonderstuff, Supergrass, The Proclaimers, The Orb and more.

Solfest is ran almost entirely by a group of volunteers whose aim has always been to create a festival where all generations of family can relax together, where young and old can find entertainment around every corner.

In 2011, there will be a whole program of activities away from the music to keep people’s minds a million miles away from the normality of their day to days including session tents around the site and a healing field.
