Nestled in its own little corner of the festival, the Drystone Stage is the festival’s biggest outdoor stage, home to the wild, the wonderful and the wacky. The ‘spiritual home’ for many Solfest performers and festival-goers alike.
If you don’t want to miss the music while you queue for
a drink, why not combine the two at the Solway Bar?
Serving a selection of local real ales and special Solway
cider, alongside a heavy dose of rock ’n’ roll, ska, punk,
blues, and northern soul.
