We are very sorry to have to announce the cancellation of
The Silloth Music and Beer Festival 2020.
As Cumbria’s longest running festival we hoped it might be possible to go ahead this year. However the continuing need for social distancing and our concern for the safety of all our supporters, our regulars, our volunteers & our town mean we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our Festival this year.
We wish you all the best & hope you all stay safe. We will see you for our best ever festival in 2021 for our 21st Birthday!

Silloth Music & Beer Festival
Welcome to The Silloth Music & Beer Festival 2020
The Silloth Music & Beer Festival is celebrating 20 years of great local entertainment and will take place this year from Thursday 10th September to Sunday 13th September on Silloth Green. The festival is organised by the committee of Silloth Music Festivals Ltd. which is a not-for-profit company; any profits made are either ploughed back into improving future festivals or helping other music events on The Green.
All the committee members and festival helpers are unpaid volunteers; we feel this is important and is reflected in the many positive comments we receive each year from regular festival-goers.
Our aim is to provide an enjoyable, relaxed and entertaining 4 days for local people and to attract visitors to Silloth-on-Solway to help local businesses. We feel our festival is unique in offering both music and beer in equal quantities!
In addition to our headline acts we promote local bands giving them a chance to perform on ‘the big stage’.
Around 60 real ales – many from Cumbria itself – are featured with some 20 draft ciders. For the non-real ale drinkers we offer lager, perry ciders, wine, soft drinks and water!
On Saturday afternoons we have a free and easy session allowing you to enjoy a drink or two in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Sunday afternoon is traditionally our Family Afternoon, offering face painting and other activities yet to be confirmed.
N.B. Children are only allowed in events on Saturday and Sunday afternoons free of charge providing they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
Make sure that you don’t miss this year’s festival – a great 4 days of music and beer!

The Reveloutionaires | Friday
Established within the ‘hotbed’ of the North East music scene in the UK, they power out jumpin’ hot rhythm & blues in their own indomitable hard hitting style. Primarily, they are influenced by 1940’s and 1950’s R&B. In particular, Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Roy Brown. However, they have adopted a harder and more aggressive approach, synonymous with modern blues artists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Duke Robillard, Jools Holland and Mike Henderson which helps create their own high energy sound.
