This Is The Kit , DJ Hype, DJ Champion Utah Saints and the Thursday line up will see Goldie Lookin Chain, Sam and the Womp on stage.

A spokesman for the team said: "We have been awarded a second Culture Recovery Fund grant of £75,000 to help the organisation recover and reopen, £175,000 in total. This grant will aid us in providing a better experience for the festival’s attendees by providing a well-rounded music and arts festival, ensuring all of its production deposits are covered in the event of covid uncertainty, so your ticket money will be protected if we do not run due to the pandemic."

This comes after Allerdale Borough Council's licensing panel granted a licence for the playing of live music and recorded music, as well as the sale of alcohol, for the Solfest music festival, planned this year for August 27, 28 and 29.

The application to the local authority sought to move the festival across the road from its previous site. It is now planned to take place on land at Holly House, Goodyhills, Mawbray, Maryport.

Camping for the festival will take place on land at the North Lakes Country Park.
