Ranging from Filipino and Indian cuisine to gourmet burgers, steaks and delectable cupcakes and Split-themed cookies, this festival will offer food like no other, alongside some of the North East’s brightest comedians including Jason Cook and Richard Gadd on the Sunday night.

Now in its third year, Split Festival has expanded massively for 2011 with internationally renowned bands headlining the festival and thanks to our massive new marquee, which was used at Glastonbury; we can guarantee that whatever the weather everyone at Sunderland’s very own premier music festival will remain dry and happy.
