“So it was exciting to get the confirmation that Basement Jaxx had agreed to perform based on that performance. They are sure to get the crowds going. Solfest at its heart is about the people that attend, many of the traders, staff and attendees come because of its welcoming and safe atmosphere. We try and offer as big a range of music and entertainment to keep babies through to grannies entertained!”
