You're going to want make some space on your summer '17 festival bucket list guys, because one of the coolest festivals of the summer will be taking place up north from 28 - 30 July on Tubby's Farm in Lisburn.

Sunflowerfest is a three-day arts and music festival set in woodland surroundings, and it's unlike any other shindig you'll go to all summer.

The festival theme this year is a 'Parallel Universe', and it sounds sliiick. Think "sci-fi and space, string theory and the multiverse, a place like no other yet oddly the same, and a massive upgrade of the status quo."

The line-up has just been announced, and it doesn't disappoint, with decent names like Irish comedy-rap duo Rubberbandits, electro heroes Le Galaxie and King Kong Company, and rising star Farah Elle.

Other solid acts for the festival include Louth band Grand, a Gypsy Folk/Ska band, singer-singwriter Roisin El Cherif, and deadly Hip Hop artist Damola.

There's also amaaaazing food options available in the Food Village, including the nation's fave burrito joint - Boojum.

One of our favourite things about this particular festival is that they're focused on the environment - so they're doing their bit to keep it eco. 

Sunflowerfest are providing an eco-friendly, reliable and sustainable camping option in the form of 100% recyclable, pre-pitched cardboard tents. 

Yes, you read that right - cardboard tents! 

They fit two people, measure at a comfy 2.2 x 1.5 metres and weigh a sturdy sixteen kilograms (so you won’t have to worry about your accommodation blowing away - nightmare.)

There will also be yoga, meditation, and interactive workshops on over the weekend, and stages include the Pond Stage, which was crafted from pine logs.

Weekend tickets for Sunflowerfest start at just £74.95 (includes 2 children, aged 15 and under) and £64.95 for students, and can be bought here.
