SO FESTIVAL – 30 August to 1 September 2019

Magna Vitae invites you to SO Festival 2019!

Magna Vitae , in partnership with our major funders Arts Council England and East Lindsey District Council, would like to thank you for supporting SO Festival 2018 and invite you to SO Festival 2019.

We are pleased to announce that the festival will be returning 30 August to 1 September 2019, bringing an incredible programme of outdoor arts to the East Coast of Lincolnshire.

SO Festival is one of the biggest family-friendly cultural arts festivals in the UK and the 2018 festival has been a great success. We have offered locals, visitors and holiday makers alike a truly memorable experience with an array of home-grown and international performances over the weekend.

Jens Frimann Hansen, our Artistic Director from Denmark brings a Nordic and continental direction that provides a fantastic display of outdoor art and entertainment to prompt both community engagement and thought. We are delighted to be working with Europe’s leading festival director, and partner with Helsingør Teater in Denmark and PASSAGE Festival in Denmark and Sweden.

The future of SO Festival

Setting out the vision for SO Festival over the coming years, Jens and the festival team at Magna Vitae aim to significantly improve and increase community participation with the event, whilst making the arts accessible to all and developing SO Festival and the East Coast of Lincolnshire as a stage for the best outdoor artists in the world.

SO Festival is proud to receive Arts Council England funding until 2022 as a second time National Portfolio Organisation.
