Record sales for Cumbrian music festival

Organisers of Solfest have reported record early ticket sales for the August festival.

All Solfest adult weekend tickets now revert to £95, while young people’s weekend tickets can be bought for £65.

Gerard Irving, who handles booking for all the main stage music, said: “This year’s festival has an impressive line-up, even by Solfest’s own high standards, but I’m absolutely delighted and not a little surprised at the huge demand for early bird tickets.

“I was thrilled to discover today that they’ve now all sold”.
