Sunflowerfest 2015 Goes Steampunk

Sunflowerfest, Northern Ireland's festival for all ages, has the theme of a Victorian Steampunk Menagerie this year, with even the festival’s familiar Finn McCool mascot dressed for the occasion, withtop hat and pocket watch.

Sunflowerfest 2015 will include performances, attractions and experiences taking place on Tubby’s Farm, Hillsborough, from 31st July to 2nd August 2015. This year’s festival will deliver the unique musical acts, kid-friendly activities, localcrafts, alternative therapies, theatrical performances, camping and a number of new elements to the weekend to ensure big surprises for all guests.


Adding to the spirit of community promoted at Sunflowerfest, organisers have announced that this year’s charity partner will be globally-recognised Habitat for Humanity Northern Ireland, who are bringing their ‘Shack Attack’ slum village to Sunflowerfest.  Fundraising teams of 4-6 people will enter the challenge by raising money for Habitat NI, building a shack out of scrap materials and sleeping out in it at the festival. 

Music is the glue that unites Sunflowerfest’s guests together each summer, and this year the music remains as eclectic as the festival’s guests. From death metal to rock and folk to reggae, the wide range of acts confirmed vary across the festival’s huge Finn McCool main stage area, which will host headline acts including British dub, reggae, techno, folk and rock fusion.
