So 2016 is officially wound down and we are gradually getting into the groove of preparations for 2017. So first things first for all you truly die hard Sunflowerfest fans. If you have purchased a ticket in the past you will have recieved an email from us offering you presale discounted early bird tickets, this is a limited time offer so don't dilly-dally if you want to save the maximum amount of pennies.
For all the Sunflowerfest virgins our general release early birds will be on sale Monday 5th Septemeber at midday priced at £59.95. Again, there are a limited number of early birds so move fast if you don't want to miss out.
Rowdy Singles Camping was totally full this year so we have created a dedicated ticket for this campsite and numbers are limited. We will also be bringing a dedicated campervan area with power, yes POWER! We are working hard to raise the bar higher for next year and we have some very cool plans afoot to bring you an even bigger and better Sunflowerfest experience for 2017.
So its over to you to get your tickets and spread the Sunflowerfest love.
The Sunflower's are coming out en masse now and its a perfect day at the farm where Lou Reed's Transformer is playing in the background. All is well in the land of the Sunflower and plans are afoot already for next years festival on 28-30 July 2017. The tidy-up is well advanced and a big thanks are owed to Mick, Thursa and the team of Bin'n'Gone for their hard work and wise counsel before during and after our best ever festival :)
Thank you for being the best crowd in the country and being part of something so positive and life affirmimg.
We will do our part and work hard to raise the bar higher for next year so its over to you guys to spread the love and tell everyone.
See y'all next year if we are spared and have a good one.
