Sunflowerfest is to return in August 2012, now in its third year. This years festival will have a little something for everyone, four stages of music, The Finn McCool main stage, The Campfire Stage, The Barn and brand new additions to Sunflowerfest, The Electric Disco Shed and The Moot, an arena of ideas where there will be debates, poetry, comedy and all things cerebral. For those night owls there will be a late night Silent Disco and Cinema Tent. The line-up will include the very best of local talent, but for the first time will include international guest artists across a range of genres.
Sunflowerfest is a volunteer based festival. From its inception Sunflowerfest has been building a dedicated team of volunteers. This year there will be roles for around 100 volunteers. Anyone who would like to get involved with the festival can fill in an application form on the website. It is a very rewarding experience and a good way of learning new skills, meeting new people and being part of a fantastic experience.
Sunflowerfest takes place at Tubbys Farm Hillsborough in Co. Down from 17-19 August 2012.
