ORGANISERS of Sunflowerfest have announced this year’s festival will take place from Friday to Sunday, August 9-11.

The annual family-friendly festival, which takes place at Tubby’s Farm in Hillsborough, Co. Down, is in its fourth year and hosts a plethora of the best local music artists, bands and international guests.

A multitude of stages and arenas, mixed with fairytale and make-believe, ensure an eclectic mix of music and arts to suit all ages and tastes.

Michael Magowan, Event Director of Sunflowerfest, says, “Sunflowerfest is now in its fourth year and we have concentrated on building and improving on the successful formula of previous years.

“We have been extremely busy taking applications, improving festival access, and adding to the Log Moot and sailing ship on the pond.

“As a result the site is easier to access and move around and there is a host of new and exciting bands and artists, food vendors and quirky festival boutiques.

“The quality of the artists is amazing and we are delighted to be able to introduce a real bounty of new acts from all around Ireland, GB and beyond.

“We look forward to welcoming lots of old and new friends to the farm. Roll on the summer!”

Sunflowerfest 2013 takes place at Tubby’s Farm in Hillsborough, Co. Down, from Friday 9 to Sunday 11 August.”
