Summer Saturnalia is a not-for-profit, three-day open-air, music, arts and film festival taking place 22nd-24th July in a secret countryside location near Skipton, North Yorkshire.
Over 90 bands, DJs and solo artists, from West Yorkshire’s music scene and beyond, will play across four arenas: ‘Titan’, our main stage, playing host to bands during the day and big club sounds in the evening; ‘Pandora’, showcasing an eclectic selection with a focus on deep, electronic music; ‘The Black Hole’ which will leverage the mighty M.O.B soundsystem to cater for those desirous of seriously bass-heavy music; and ‘The Saturnalian Arms’
Independent films will be showcased in our cinema tent ‘Hyperion’ and we are currently collaborating with some very talented artists to decorate the entire festival site with some beautiful and engaging interactive art.
Summer Saturnalia has been put together by an extended network of friends with a passion for the local music scene and a desire to create a unique experience, otherwise impossible to find within the UK’s increasingly large festival scene. 2010 marked Summer Saturnalia’s inaugural event and our combined efforts succeeded in bringing an exceptional experience to an intimate group of a just a few hundred lucky festival-goers. Keeping the original not-for-profit, just-for-fun ethos we are looking forward to bringing the vibe to more music lovers and providing an increasingly important platform for the best local talent, both established names and relative newcomers. Our word-of-mouth marketing and limited ticket numbers means that this year will be a similarly exclusive event and our freedom from commercial interests leaves us room to surprise and innovate where the more established brands cannot.
Summer Saturnalia is an over-18 only event. Weekend tickets cost £55, including camping.
