Some Sunflowerfest numbers:
-6 years at Tubby’s Farm

Headline acts scheduled to take to the main stage this year include are the eclectic British dub, reggae, techno, folk and rock fusion Dreadzone, who will highlight the main stage on Friday 31st July, and politically-charged UK rap rock band Senser, who will grace the main stage on Saturday, 1st August. Closing the festival’s main stage with a bang on Sunday 2nd August will be the much-anticipated performance of popular English folk group Skinny Lister, who will be returning to Northern Ireland following the April release of their second album, Down on Deptford Broadway.
A crowd favourite at last year’s Sunflowerfest, this year Waterford’s King Kong Company will have the honour of playing main support to Dreadzone on Friday night.
Sunflowerfest is known for its unwavering support of the local music scene in Northern Ireland, where it offers a platform for up-and-coming talent to be seen and heard as well as great opportunities for young musicians to meet and interact with well-known figures from the UK and Ireland’s music scenes.
This year an array of home-grown talent including R51, Hard Chargers, Allison McGrath Band, Que Pasa, Decomposing in Paris, and the Dandy Horses, among others.
This year, due to fans’ requests, the popular Silent Disco will also be returning as a well-loved feature of Sunflowerfest, and offers a chance for festivalgoers to throw some shapes and show off their best dance moves after hours.
Now in its 6th year, the annual festival held each summer on Tubby’s Farm in Hillsborough, County, Down, has quickly become a must-attend festival for all things related to music and art. The annual festival is attended by music lovers from across the UK and Ireland and as far away as Russia, Germany, China and America.
