Damages deposits:

For all 2016 bookings and future bookings we have a new deposit scheme in place:

Unfortunately due to the misuse of our stock over the 2015 season which we can no longer use, we have had no choice but to put a deposit and damages scheme in place for 2016 and beyond.

When you make a booking with us we will ask for a deposit of £50 for Squrts, Cloudhouses, Bell tents and unfurnished 12ft yurts, and
£100 for any larger structures.

This will be automatically added to your shopping basket when you book with us and when you make a telephone order.

The deposit can be split over your instalment plan and is fully refundable into the bank account you paid for your structure with within 72hours of the festival ending If no damage or loss had been made.

You will find on each Festival page the itemised damages scheme, this is due to a large quantity of brand new Egyptian cotton linen and towels which are un-salvageable which cannot be used again.

If we feel that the property, linen or yurt has been damaged to a point where it is no longer usable, we will automatically retain the cost of that particular item from your deposit and email you to explain the deduction made from your deposit refund. All deductions are inclusive of VAT @ 20%

People do things for all sorts of strange reasons. When Solfestwas first conceived  back in the summer of 2003, the aim was very simple; we wanted to create the sort of festival we thought that we would like to go to ourselves. We were all tired and disillusioned by mainstream corporate events, structured around commercial greed, which had lost sight of any notion of "community". The plan was to create a festival where the punter came first. Not necessarily a big festival, but certainly a good one. And they got it right a great, freindly, home grown event.
