Spilt Festival is a new genre of festival that is intelligent, ethical, sensual and aimed at all ages, sizes and hues!

We are creating a world class festival which will be known internationally for its outstanding environmental credentials, delicious local food and drink and of course eclectic and superbly selected music.

Split aims to create positive wealth for our region and retain a strong ethos of supporting local content in music, food and drink, reflecting the varied culture and history of Sunderland as a powerhouse of UK manufacturing since the dawn of the industrial revolution.

By its organic nature, Split has a loyal fan base who attend because of the unique atmosphere created. Split Festival is a true celebration of the little known, but immense cultural wealth of the city of Sunderland.
